Are You Living the Life God Has Entrusted to You?

“26 But his master answered him, ‘You wicked and slothful servant! You knew that I reap where I have not sown and gather where I scattered no seed? 27 Then you ought to have invested my money with the bankers, and at my coming I should have received what was my own with interest. 28 So take the talent from him and give it to him who has the ten talents. 29 For to everyone who has will more be given, and he will have an abundance.”-Matthew 25:26-29

Ash Wednesday started on Wednesday February 26, 2020 which marked the beginning of Lent. This is the 40-day period Christians observe to prepare to celebrate Easter or Resurrection Sunday. Today’s scripture comes from The Parable of the Talents. Jesus told this parable to illustrate stewardship and the importance of using what God has entrusted to us to glorify him and build up the Body of Christ. You can read the full parable by clicking here. When someone is a steward over something, that means they are managing something on behalf of the owner. 2 Peter 1:3 says, “By his divine power, God has given us everything we need for living a godly life. We have received all of this by coming to know him, the one how called us to himself by means of his marvelous glory and excellence.”

God has entrusted each of us with a purpose and calling. We do not own our purpose, calling or gifts. Everything belongs to God and cannot occur without God. We can be so focused doing things in our own strength we forget God entrusted us and we need to depend on him for the fruit and results. Fear, toxic relationships and friendships, distractions, doubt and more can hinder us from walking in what God has entrusted to us. I would like you to take a moment and pause. Take some time with God as we continue to observe Lent and ask yourself the following question: Am I living the life God has entrusted to me or am I depending too much on myself to do only what God can do?

It is never too late to obey God. He knows we are human and will fall short. Jesus died for everything including our fear, doubt, procrastination and so much more. I know fear has tried to hinder me. I am now living a life of more freedom and peace while taking small steps of faith daily. I want to encourage you to look to God and know he will give you more than what you need to prosper in the calling and purpose he has entrusted to you. Ephesians 3:20 says, “Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.” May God bless you and keep all of us as we walk out what God has entrusted to us.
