So then, let us [apostles] be looked upon as ministering servants of Christ and stewards (trustees) of the mysteries (the secret purposes) of God. Moreover, it is [essentially] required of stewards that a man should be found faithful [proving himself worthy of trust].
— 1 Corinthians 4:1-2 (AMPC)
A faithful person knows what God has put in their heart, and even though they may feel like quitting, they don’t give up. They don’t get out of a relationship because it isn’t easy anymore. They don’t leave a church because there is some “new” thing across town, or a job because it gets too challenging.
One of the most important lessons you can learn is to be faithful with something until God lets you know you are finished with it. Sometimes God will call you out of one place and put you into another one—but God doesn’t change the plan very frequently. A faithful person is committed to doing whatever God tells them to do—no matter what!
Prayer Starter: Lord, help me to stay faithful to what You have called me to do. Help me to break free of anything that is holding me back from doing Your will, amen.
