Text: ‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭28:20‬ ‭NKJV‬‬
[20] A faithful man will abound with blessings, But he who hastens to be rich will not go unpunished.

Nothing spectacular happens in your life by chance.

If you strongly believe that your future and progress lies in God then give him honour. adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Faithful people abound in surplus, abundance and prosperity. A faithful person abound in strength and is stable in the face of adversity.
Faithful people experiences God’s protection and deliverance; they are always secure. They abound in contentment and peace even in the midst of trials.

Faithful people are known to be trustworthy and loyal.
Faith is believe. Faithfulness is acting in accordance with what you believe.
Faithfulness come from a place of trust and loyalty.
‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭11:1‬ ‭NKJV‬‬
[1] Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭11:6‬ ‭NKJV‬‬
[6] But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.

Faith is very important in your relationship with God.
It is one thing to believe and it is another thing to be faithful to what you believe. You show you have faith by being faithful.

You show you are faithful by:
1. Prayer
When you pray always, it shows your confidence and trust in God.
‭‭Philippians‬ ‭4:6‭-‬7‬ ‭NKJV‬‬
[6] Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; [7] and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

2. Reading God’s word
‭‭Joshua‬ ‭1:8‬ ‭NKJV‬‬
[8] This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.

‭‭Psalm‬ ‭75:6‬ ‭KJV‬‬
[6] For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, Nor from the south.
No lifting comes your way without God.

‭‭Psalms‬ ‭119:65‬ ‭NKJV‬‬
[65] You have dealt well with Your servant, O Lord, according to Your word.

God will do well with you according to his promises. What can you lay on to that he has promised you that you can run with this year 2024.

‭‭Acts‬ ‭20:32‬ ‭KJV‬‬
[32] And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified.

3. Obedience to his instructions
God gave us a command to win souls (expand God’s kingdom). You can’t desire your enlargement if you don’t want to expand God’s kingdom.
If you don’t create time for God, God won’t create time for you.
4. Service
The proof that you love God is that you serve him faithfully.
When you choose to obey and service God, prosperity is waiting for you.
You are doing yourself a favour when you serve God. You are adding to your time when you give your time to God.

5. Love
The proof of your faithfulness is in how much you love God.
‭‭John‬ ‭3:16‬ ‭NLT‬‬
[16] “For this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.

God didn’t give himself cheaply for your redemption.

6. Giving
God is faithful and he is a giver. If you have God’s nature, then you must possess the nature of giving.
All that you have was given to you. So why should you give? Anyone you love, you give to that person. If you love God then you must give to him.
‭‭Luke‬ ‭6:38‬ ‭KJV‬‬
[38] give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.

When you give expect harvest. God gave one son and he got many sons. If you want to act like your God, then give.

First fruit is a principle of honour. First fruit shows that you make God your priority. Everything to lie up on spite of any challenge that comes your way when you give God your first.
Making God first establishes his lordship over your life.
‭‭Exodus‬ ‭23:19‬ ‭NKJV‬‬
[19] The first of the firstfruits of your land you shall bring into the house of the Lord your God. You shall not boil a young goat in its mother’s milk.

‭‭Romans‬ ‭11:16‬ ‭NKJV‬‬
[16] For if the firstfruit is holy, the lump is also holy; and if the root is holy, so are the branches.

Your first fruit is giving Hod what you cherish and shows how much you love him.
First fruit activates God’s promises towards your financial future.
It shows the depth of your dependable of God and not yourself.
It secures and ensures your harvest.
God wants your best and first fruit.

‭‭‭‭2 Corinthians‬ ‭9:8‬ ‭AMP‬‬
[8] And God is able to make all grace [every favor and earthly blessing] come in abundance to you, so that you may always [under all circumstances, regardless of the need] have complete sufficiency in everything [being completely self-sufficient in Him], and have an abundance for every good work and act of charity.

There are crowns to be won or lost depending on how faithful we are.
Some of these Crowns are:
1. The incorruptible crown for those who will live a disciplined life.
Punctuality, focus and diligence are proofs of a disciplined life. Discipline yourself to pray and read your Bible.
2. The crown of glory for those who are faithfully waiting for the coming of Jesus.
You must live your life as if Jesus is coming today.
3. There is a crown of glory for those who take care of the flock.
As a leader of a department, you must take care of the flock
4. There is a crown of glory for those who love God’s appearance.
5. There is a crown of rejoicing for those who win souls.

Prayer: This year you will walk in abundance, enlargement and favour as you walk faithfully with God in Jesus name.
