28 May 2023: THREE TESTS OF FAITHFULNESS – Luke 16:10-12

There are three tests of faithfulness: faithfulness in little things, faithfulness in another man’s things, and faithfulness in money. Do you refuse to fetch water for your parents but want God to use you in diverse gifts of the Spirit? You are to first be faithful in that natural work and then God will use you in that prophetic assignment.

David was faithful in keeping his father’s sheep. God saw a boy that was not a soldier, didn’t carry weapons, but was so faithful over the sheep when the lion came that he resolved not to lose any of his father’s sheep. He fought the lion with the spirit of faithfulness and took the lamb from the mouth of the lion. He also fought a bear. Then he went ahead to confront and kill Goliath (1 Sam. 16:34-51). God noted it all and thought, “If he could risk his life for the sheep, he wouldn’t hesitate to do the same for God’s people if he became king.”

Elisha was faithful in washing the clothes of Elijah, pouring water on his hands (2 Kin. 3:11-12). The sons of the prophet did not do anything of such. Instead, they went about boasting that they were the sons of the prophet and collecting prophets’ offerings (2 Kin. 2:5). When the time came for the double portion of the anointing, God gave it to Elisha who was doing the so-called menial jobs (2 Kin. 2:15).

Are you faithful to the gift that God has given you? Are you faithful to the children God has entrusted you with? Are you faithful to the wife or the husband God has given you?

Be faithful!

PRAYER: Holy Spirit my Parakletos, help me not to fail the test of God in Jesus’ name. Amen!

2 Samuel 13:1-39; John 17:1-26; Psalm 119:81-96; Proverbs 16:6-7
