You and I were made by God to partner with God as He brings His will, kingdom and renown to the earth. He has entrusted us with spiritual gifts that should be managed in a way that glorifies Him (1 Pet. 4:10). He has put within our trust money, property, talents, relationships, businesses and even our bodies, all of which should be managed accord to His will. If we manage and operate our lives in any other way, we will have no choice but to live life at a lesser degree than what we were created for. Our daily decisions matter.
Ask the Lord to reveal any area where you may be living under the delusion of ownership. Ask Him for the grace to surrender to Him all that is rightfully His. And ask God for the wisdom and grace to be His good manager.
