PROTECT THE GIFT
“The master commended the dishonest manager because he had acted shrewdly. For the people of this world are more shrewd in dealing with their own kind than are the people of the light.
Luke 16:8 NIV
People of this world know how to deal with their people. They are more prudent and wiser in relation to their own generation, than the sons of light. They know to make business and respect others in the business deals.
They protect the gifts of their fellow men and encourage young gift to grow. They know the value of each gift and are willing to pay any amount that they can access the gift and use it. That's why the gifted people in the world are rich and if they are not rich then they live comfortable life. They are respected and valued for what they are carrying inside.
People of God don't understand that they have the duty of protecting the gifts that God has placed in the midst of them. Most of us take for granted powerful women and men of God that God has given us. We don't appreciate them and most of the time we don't even give to support their ministries; and sometimes we think that we deserve whatever God is using through them.
This morning, I want to challenge you to protect the gifts that God has placed in your life. Protect them by prayers, encourage those people and if you can support them financially. The enemy is fighting day and night to hinder those gifts to prosper. He is fighting day and night to quiet all the prophetic voices that speak over your life.
If the people of this world can take care each other. We suppose to be more than that, we need to encourage each other and help each other every day. God is waiting for you to do something for the servants of God. He is waiting for you to support those gifts, and help young gifts to grow.
Pray this prayer with me by faith and God is going to answer your prayer....
Dear Heavenly Father, help me to protect all the gifts that are in my life right now. Help me to be supportive to them and stand by them in the work of ministry. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
