Volume 10, Issue 02: Steward Your Way To Your BIG

This article is comprehensive on it own but it would be better if you first read the "Something BIG" article that I published last week. Faith isn't faith in the absence of works. If we are going to experience something BIG this year, we had better get busy taking some actions, because God can only bless what we are working on. The Bible says that God blesses the work of our hands. What are you doing about what you are stretching your faith for this year? We are praying and trusting God, but we must also do the best we can with what we have.

Perhaps you are trusting God for more resources, or for your own house, or a bigger house. But how well are you taking care of the one you have? How content are you with what you have? Would God consider you a good steward of the resources he has given you? Does more than half of the fresh produce you bring home from the market end up in the dustbin? How about the food you pile on your plates to devour, how much of it gets thrown away because it's too much for you to finish? When Jesus fed the multitudes, he had the disciples pick up the leftovers for later consumption.

Could be that you are trusting God to start your own business or get a better job. But how are you carrying yourself at your current job and opportunities? Are you being a good steward of what you have been given? Are you giving it your all despite the forces going against you at your place of work? As long as you still have a job in that place that you can't wait to get out of, work as if it were your dream job.

Joseph didn't start with his dream job. He was a slave in Potiphar's house yet he did his job so diligently that his boss entrusted him with the management of his whole estate. Don't take it for granted when you have been entrusted with the stewardship of resources at your place of work. You may not like the place, but God has used it to expose you to big things, and to people in high positions that you would otherwise have never had the opportunity to sit at the same table with.

We are going for BIG things this year, but this could be the year that you lose your job, the job that you diligently serve at. Be prepared not to be moved because your something BIG isn't pegged on your job or connections. Your something BIG is pegged on Who is with you regardless of where you are. Joseph flourished wherever he was because God was with him.

Joseph did his job well at Potiphar's house and did the right thing, but he still lost his job. Worse still, he ended up in prison. But it was from prison that Joseph got elevated to his something BIG. It may never have happened for Joseph had he not lost his lucrative job at Potiphar's house. Your something BIG could spring up from the most unpleasant circumstances you will ever face.

All through Joseph's story from being sold into slavery by his brothers to getting to the palace as second in command to Pharaoh, he was doing something with what he had, where he was. Joseph had a big dream, but he didn't sit around waiting for it, he kept himself busy stewarding what he had. It didn't matter that he was a slave at Potiphar's house, or an inmate in prison, Joseph took responsibility and gave it his all. And that is how those in authority over him put him in charge over much. And in the fullness of time, he made it to his something BIG. Let's continue to steward our way to our something BIG this year.


For His Glory,

Lillian Chebosi
