Do what He already asked you and be ready for more and more.
“To those who use well what they are given, even more, will be given, and they will have an abundance. But from those who do nothing, even what little they have will be taken away.” Matthew 25:28 NLT.
Many times I heard people wondering if God is there then why He does not guide them. They expect God to show them the next steps or open new doors.
However, sometimes we forget that we were not faithful to what God had already given to us. Think, if someone is not faithful with what is already given, how could you give more?
I don’t know what God already showed you or gave it to you. Maybe God asked you to accept Jesus as your savior. Did you do it? Maybe God asked you to obey him in waters of baptism after your professed faith in Jesus Christ. Did you do it? Maybe God asked you to go and join a Bible teaching and preaching church and study the Bible? Did you do it? Maybe God gave you a spiritual gift to use for His glory. Did you take any step toward it? Did He ask you to pray more? Did you do it? Did He ask you to begin or plant something leaning on Him. Did you do it?
You see, why should God reveal your next steps if you are not serious about what He already asked you to do?
You see, God typically shows one step at a time and test what you do with it. When you faithfully do what is already given/revealed, he gives or shows you more and more.
Jesus said a story about a man going on a long trip. He called his servants and gave the talents while he was gone. He gave five to one, two to another, and one to the third one. He gave the talents understanding their abilities. Then he was gone far away. After l long time, the master came back and asked them to give account for how they had used the talents given to them. The first servant said he earned five more from the five given. The second one said he earned two more from the two given. The third one said he thought his master is a harsh man who is able to gather crops even without planting and gathering. He said he was afraid and hid his talent and gave the one back to the master. The master congratulated the first two for their faithfulness in handling the small talents. He said he would give them more responsibilities. To the third man, he said, you are lazy. You could have even deposited the talent in a bank and at least he could have earned a few more by gaining interest.
The master ordered to take the talent away from the third servant and give it to the more faithful one. Then Jesus said our Bible insight, to those who use well what they are given, and they will have more. But from those who do nothing, it will take away even that little.
It is a solemn thought to check what God gave to you already. Or check what God asked you to do already. Begin there. Start doing what God already requested. Then watch the blessings of the Lord in it. Also, you would experience more and more in the divine store for you. You will have an abundance. The opposite is also true. If you do nothing with what he already gave you, then even that which was given could be taken away from you.
Listen! Jesus called you in the past, didn’t He? Even today, Jesus lovingly calls you to open the doors of your heart to come into your life. Jesus died, buried, and rose again for your salvation, spiritual happiness, and eternal life. He called you in the past. Even calls you today. Would you come to Him? If yes, pray after me now.
“Father in heaven, I understand You sent Jesus for me and my salvation. I know I am a sinner. I need the savior and salvation you offer. I repent of my sins and pray to save me today. Please forgive me and make me your child. I accept Jesus as my savior and Lord. In the name of Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen.”
