Stewardship - Stewardship—the job of utilizing and managing all resources God provides for the glory of God

The most commonly used Greek word for steward is “oikonomos” (ike-o-nom-os), which means “steward”, “manager”, or “administrator”
But, I believe God is helping us to see that most of life’s journey is picking up the ball, making a few yards, reanalyzing, asking God for his direction, and moving forward again until we eventually achieve the purpose that God has for us.

If we are to be good stewards over all that God has given us, that includes honoring God with the first fruits—the tithe (10%) and giving offerings as we are able.
Satan is no match for us. He cannot stop us unless we believe his lies instead of the word of God and the voice of the Holy Spirit.
That means we spend wisely. The enemy’s plan is for you to go into so much debt that you can’t pay your bills, much less give to the Lord’s work.

CS Lewis said, “It’s not the load that breaks you down; it’s the way you carry it.”

Don’t wait for a crisis on the fourth down when you still have 10 yards to go. Follow His directions on the first, second, and third down and He will get you to the 10th yard line.
The result? God says He shall direct your path. The word “direct” means “to make straight or smooth”. Ask yourself, “Has my life been smooth?”

“God didn’t give you the strength to get back on your feet only to run back to the very thing that knocked you down.”

Don’t ever forget: when God is in charge, every third down will result in a 1st and 10, 1st and 10s result in touch downs, touchdowns result in wins, and wins result in being a champion.
