40 Day Spiritual Journey To A Generous Life! http://www.generouslife.org/book.pdf
By Brian Kluth
Your role is to be the trustee, manager and steward of 100% of what God entrusts to you during your lifetime. Brian Kluth
Teaching By Brian Kluth:
Mission Impossible! Role is to be the trustee manager steward of 100 percent of what God has entrusted you during your life time. God is the provider- source we are the manager… Matthew 25: Well done my good and faithful servant, you have been faithful in handling the small amount, so you will be given more. Surrender to God's calling, what He calls for, He provides. God I don't understand how You will do this and how it will work out but at the end of my life I want to hear, well done good and faithful servant, come and share in Your Master's future. My only role is to be a servant of the Lord Jesus Christ! God it is whatever YOU want! All of our lives are to be managed under the Lordship of Jesus. What would Jesus have me do and live. We live as a steward, manager, trustee with one goal in mind to hear: Well done good and faithful servant. 1 Cor 4:2 A man should be found faithful. We are accountable to what God has called us to and entrusted to us. We are loaned what God gives us for a time and we need to be accountable to God for all He has given us. We are free to use the things He gives us, but there will be an accounting that goes on. We can live for the wrong things and have the wrong focus. My good and faithful servant, come and share in Your Master's happiness. WE can acknowledge things in our head but miss it in our heart. We must receive Christ and respond to Him. Conversion of our head and our hearts and our resources, all that God entrusts to us. 18 inches from our head to our heart could be the 18 inches that keeps us from the Kingdom of God.
The truth is--every one of us in America is rich when you compare us to the rest of the world. What each of us needs to learn is how to become more generous with whatever God entrusts to us. Brian Kuth
Colossians 3:17, 23-24 Whatever you do or say, let it be as a representative of the Lord Jesus….Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.
Romans 14:7-8 None of us lives to himself alone and none of us dies to himself alone. If we live, we live to the Lord; and if we die, we die to the Lord.
Matthew 25:19-21, 24-26 "After a long time their master returned from his trip and called them to give an account of how they had used his money. The servant to whom he had entrusted the five bags of gold said, `Sir, you gave me five bags of gold to invest, and I have doubled the amount.' The master was full of praise. `Well done, my good and faithful servant. You have been faithful in handling this small amount, so now I will give you many more responsibilities. Let's celebrate together!'… "Then the servant with the one bag of gold came and said, `Sir, I know you are a hard man, harvesting crops you didn't plant and gathering crops you didn't cultivate. I was afraid I would lose your money, so I hid it in the earth and here it is.' "But the master replied, `You wicked and lazy servant!"
1 Corinthians 4:2 It is required in stewards that a man be found faithful.
My Thoughts About This:
Ouch that hit me hard today because I have not been faithful over the years with financial choices, I have been impulsive, not following after God, not obeying but getting what I wanted because I wanted to give. Jesus, today I make a mark in the sand of my life, I will obey YOU in my finances. I will live in my means, I will no longer charge when I can't afford things, I will follow after YOU in my finances and I will let my husband lead.
A Seasoned Servant Of God Has Encouraged Me Today
1 Corinthians 9: 19-23 Even though I am free of the demands and expectations of everyone, I have voluntarily become a servant to any and all in order to reach a wide range of people: religious, nonreligious, meticulous moralists, loose-living immoralists, the defeated, the demoralized—whoever. I didn't take on their way of life. I kept my bearings in Christ—but I entered their world and tried to experience things from their point of view. I've become just about every sort of servant there is in my attempts to lead those I meet into a God-saved life. I did all this because of the Message. I didn't just want to talk about it; I wanted to be in on it!

Satan loves to distract church goers with a plethora of activity that produces little results in Kingdom-building. Quote By Ron Edmonson
A Seasoned Servant Of God Has Encouraged Me Today
Psalm 77:19 "Your path led through the sea, your way through the mighty waters, though your footprints were not seen."
Dear Bob and Kim,
Do you get weary, like I do, walking this journey with God? For those called to serve Him, whether as a lay leader or in vocational ministry, it is especially hard sometimes because we tend to give all of ourselves in ministry to the people God puts in our path and, as a result, we can feel drained of our physical and spiritual "energy".
Your pastor works tirelessly to meet the needs and to serve people through his preaching, counseling, leading, and administrating, among many duties.
I was reminded by another pastor today that, "even though when we can't see God working or don't think He is working, yet, He is working. Jesus said it best: '…My Father is working until now, and I Myself am working.'"
"God is always at work around us (Henry Blackaby, "Experiencing God"). Because God's work is spiritual work, sometimes we just can't see what He doing. As a result, we can become weary and, yes, sometimes even frustrated. Because we don't see Him at work, sometimes we don't think He is at work."
If you find yourself wondering where God is today, I want to encourage you to trust Him and know that He is working in your life even if you don't think He is.
Remember Psalm 77:19 "Your path led through the sea, your way through the mighty waters, though your footprints were not seen."
My Thoughts About This:
This hits home today because I don't have a clue what God is doing or why He moved us to Pinehurst, but I am believing that He is working, He is setting up something and I am feeling better, as I trust HIM, believe in HIM and know He has a plan for us being here.

Jesus replied, "You do not realize now what I am doing, but later you will understand." John 13:7
God's will is not always understood in the moment, but in retrospect it becomes clear. This is the design of the faith walk: remain faithful today, even though understanding may not come until tomorrow. Delays in the comprehension of circumstances seem like a divine detour, but it is a fruitful path for the Lord to show Himself trustworthy and wise.
Be comforted for Christ is doing a deeper work—even if on the surface it seems shallow, insignificant and unnecessary. The details of how He takes the time to prepare us for His next assignment may seem redundant, but counter intuitive actions are not learned in one lesson. The idea that greatness comes from being a servant to all takes time to transform a heart. Jesus does not allow us to move on until humility truly moves in.
"Now I, Nebuchadnezzar, praise and exalt and glorify the King of heaven, because everything he does is right and all his ways are just. And those who walk in pride he is able to humble" (Daniel 4:37).
A delayed understanding of God's ways is not meant to delay our action in opportunities to serve. For example, we can't immediately see the bigger meaning in the scare of an inconclusive blood test that leads to more invasive physical exams, but later we grow in our love for the physicians and nurses who care for us. Delays are God's parenthesis for Him to produce good fruit in and through us. So we serve well while we wait to know.
Do you feel trapped or caught in a no win situation? If so, what is the Lord trying to say? How can you grow as a student in Jesus' school of unselfish service? Ask Him to convert your counterproductive frustrations into fuel for focus on the well being of others. You may have it hard, but someone else has it worse. Turn to the all knowing one in the middle of the unknown. The Holy Spirit will reveal His ways when you are ready.
"Wait for the LORD; be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD" (Psalm 27:14).
Therefore, stand today in the security of your Savior Jesus, as He is your rock and reassurance. Understanding may not come until after your window of obedience. His love is not delayed, only your ability to totally comprehend His grander plan in the larger landscape of life. God's delays are designed to accelerate your love for and trust in Jesus.
"Yes, LORD, walking in the way of your laws, we wait for you; your name and renown are the desire of our hearts" (Isaiah 26:8).
Where do I need to remain faithful in the middle of a season of delayed understanding?
My Thoughts About This:
I read the title and thought uhohhhhh better cover up my toes. Then as I began to read it, I knew it was written just for me. Delayed Understanding! Yes I know what it feels like! I have no idea why I am here in Pinehurst. Everything seemed to be going well and I was making friends and the Military ministry was going very well. This makes no sense, this move. So, I need to do everything I can do to walk in obedience during this transition and I need to do everything I know God has already asked me to do and focus on that and hope that when the door of God's purpose opens here, I will see it and walk into it. Why am I here? Why did I get moved? Not sure, but I am sure it opened up my heart more, gave me a look inside of it and I did not like what I saw, so cleansing happened and I am thankful for that. God has a plan and a purpose, I may not see it, but He does. This has to be enough for now. Not my will but YOURS Lord.
A Minute With Maxwell
Results! We all want good results when we put forth the effort. We can work hard but if we con't work smart we don't get the results we want. When the day is done there are certain things thatr are important to us. At the end of the day what would we like to see accomplished, make this list and then go through your day saying, I will do now what will give me these results.
charles spurgeon devotional
"Thou hast made summer and winter."
My soul begin this wintry month with thy God. The cold snows and the piercing winds all remind thee that he keeps his covenant with day and night, and tend to assure thee that he will also keep that glorious covenant which he has made with thee in the person of Christ Jesus. He who is true to his Word in the revolutions of the seasons of this poor sin-polluted world, will not prove unfaithful in his dealings with his own well-beloved Son.
Winter in the soul is by no means a comfortable season, and if it be upon thee just now it will be very painful to thee: but there is this comfort, namely, that the Lord makes it. He sends the sharp blasts of adversity to nip the buds of expectation: he scattereth the hoarfrost like ashes over the once verdant meadows of our joy: he casteth forth his ice like morsels freezing the streams of our delight. He does it all, he is the great Winter King, and rules in the realms of frost, and therefore thou canst not murmur. Losses, crosses, heaviness, sickness, poverty, and a thousand other ills, are of the Lord's sending, and come to us with wise design. Frosts kill noxious insects, and put a bound to raging diseases; they break up the clods, and sweeten the soil. O that such good results would always follow our winters of affliction!
How we prize the fire just now! how pleasant is its cheerful glow! Let us in the same manner prize our Lord, who is the constant source of warmth and comfort in every time of trouble. Let us draw nigh to him, and in him find joy and peace in believing. Let us wrap ourselves in the warm garments of his promises, and go forth to labours which befit the season, for it were ill to be as the sluggard who will not plough by reason of the cold; for he shall beg in summer and have nothing.
Joyce Meyer: Promises for Your Everyday Life - a Daily Devotional
John 13: 35 This is how everyone will recognize that you are my disciples-when they see the love you have for each other."
Love in Action By Joyce Meyer
As Christians, we are called to show others love. Jesus told His disciples, "By this shall all [men] know that you are My disciples, if you love one another [if you keep on showing love among yourselves]" (John 13:35).
So many people see love as 'just a feeling,' but it's so much more than that. True love shows itself through action.
And this action doesn't have to be impossible and overwhelming. One of the best ways to show the love of Jesus is through simple, everyday action,
- Like giving a small gift to someone or striking up a conversation with a downcast individual who needs a friend.
- Or giving a bag of groceries to the single mom who lives down the street and is struggling to put food on the table.
- Showing love can even be as simple as smiling and saying hello to a person you pass on the street, in the hall, or at the store.
There are many ways to demonstrate the love of Christ. When you show His love to someone else, it can soften that person's heart, and before you know it, they'll be finding ways to reach out and show love to others, and so on and so on. So celebrate God's love and let Him lead you. Is He putting someone on your heart right now?
I want my love for Jesus to be reflected in the way I show love for others, even those who may be difficult to love. If I can soften one hard heart with the love of God, maybe that person will soften another's heart with love, then that one will reach out to others, and so on and so on... And soon we'll have a love revolution!
Prayer Starter: God, I want my love for You to be reflected in the way I show love for others. Show me ways to demonstrate love to anyone and everyone that You bring across my path.
My Thoughts About This:
I can't agree with that more! Love shows itself through action and sometimes I wonder if love is true if there is no action behind it.
