Can God trust you with greatness and favor? The question is not “can God be trusted?” But can God trust you?
Can God trust you to accomplish great projects and tasks for Him? Can He trust you with resources to administer on His behalf?
Are you really trustworthy?
People who don’t trust God don’t win His trust either.
TESTING ensures that what God gives you, you sustain it. Job was in the midst of trial when the word was spoken that he would be greatly increased. Job said He knoweth the way that I take: when he hath tried me, I shall come forth as gold.
The word of God says that Joseph was tried….Until the time that his word came: the word of the Lord tried him.
The Bible declares that a faithful man abounds in blessing. There is a scriptural progression before you are described as faithful. The word says that many are called but few are chosen.
You are first called, then chosen, but you must be Faithful to sustain and consistently walk in divine favor.
It is increasingly difficult to trust anybody in our day, so can you even trust yourself? I can honestly say that I refuse to trust me anymore because my ways are so far from His ways.
Personal integrity may have gone out of fashion in this century, yet it has not become impossible. It is something worth striving for, because it makes you a happier and more attractive person inside and out.
Personal integrity is the antidote to the collapse of morality, the break-up of families and the rising side of violence taking over our nation. Things will not get better unless we get better. Nothing is more needed by this sinful world than a revival of simple goodness and genuine uprightness (righteousness before God).
God looks at the heart. Jesus says that everything done secretly would be rewarded openly – good or bad!
If we look at the story of Joseph we will see that he “purposed” not to sin against God. He did not fear Potiphar, he feared God. He knew God was watching. What do you do when no one is watching? Are you conscious of God’s gaze upon you?
What are you doing to ensure you are pleasing to the Master? Heaven is our audience and Jesus is the standard.
Before God trust us, He tests us. We must count it all joy in this season of severe trials and testing because if we receive it with the right heart we shall be promoted in Him. Beloved, God will satisfy you with every good thing. Though your beginning was small your latter end shall greatly increase.
We must let every setback be a set up for a comeback.
God brings men into deep waters, not to drown them, but to cleanse them”.
John H. Aughey
No doubt that we will come out of our many tests and trials better than the finest gold.
