20/21 Days of Prayer
1 Corinthians 4:2 NKJV – Moreover it is required in stewards that one be found faithful.
People frequently ask, “How does God choose who He uses?” This is an important question, and one often asked by those who desire to be used by the Lord. The word for faithful here isn’t describing someone’s spiritual strength. Faithful describes someone who God has found as reliable, dependable, true, and unfailing.
How does God know if someone is faithful, reliable, dependable, true, and unfailing? 1 Corinthians 4:2 says they are “found” meaning that God watches us over a long period of time and in many different circumstances to see if we will conduct ourselves as people who are faithful, reliable, dependable, true, and unfailing.
Today God is watching your actions and reactions. He is observing how you treat people and how you respond to pressure. He is looking at how you handle people that are unkind towards you. He is watching to see how you respond in the face of opposition. God wants us to be faithful in our giving, faithful in loving people, and faithful in our pursuit of Him.
The great news is that today is a new day! Even if you feel like you haven’t been found faithful so far, you can decide that today you are going to be a faithful, reliable, dependable, true, and unfailing follower of Christ.
What area of your life do you feel challenged to be more faithful in?
Declare: God will find me faithful to do all that He has asked me to do.
