Do you ever feel overwhelmed by life’s responsibilities? Do you feel like you are failing in a vital area? Would you like to finally get control of your schedule and finances? Then it’s time to get your life in order! Be more productive in every area of your life with the Biblical principles shared in this Stewardship Kit.
We are stewards of the gifts and blessings of God. One day we must give an account to our Lord of how we used our resources and opportunities. These Bible lessons will enable you to have the best year of your life and give you the tools to live as a wise steward.
In today’s busy world, you will not be successful by accident. There have never been more things competing for your time, talent, and treasure. Responsibilities and distractions are at an all-time high in the digital age. If you aren’t careful, the things that matter most will not get the attention they need. Relationships will suffer, and your quality of life will decrease if you don’t live on purpose.
You can order your life in such a way that will enable you to be productive and fulfilled while you accomplish your goals, build meaningful relationships, and make an eternal difference. But you must decide to live on purpose by Biblical principles if you are to please God and accomplish your purpose.

Regret is a powerful emotion that overwhelms and paralyzes those who give it a home. Follow these four Bible steps to banish it from your life.
1 Timothy 1:12–17 “And I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who hath enabled me, for that he counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry; Who was before a blasphemer, and a persecutor, and injurious: but I obtained mercy, because I did it ignorantly in unbelief. And the grace of our Lord was exceeding abundant with faith and love which is in Christ Jesus. This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief. Howbeit for this cause I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might shew forth all longsuffering, for a pattern to them which should hereafter believe on him to life everlasting. Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be honour and glory for ever and ever. Amen.”
We all make mistakes. We all have things we would do differently. The key is that you learn from your mistakes. Satan works to use the errors of our past to haunt us with never-ending pain. Sinful actions, foolish decisions, missed opportunities, mishandled relationships, etc. give him plenty of ammo to use against us. What is haunting you from your past? What emotional club does satan use to beat you with? What nagging regret is keeping you from moving on?
The Apostle Paul had a lot of reasons for regret. He was cheering at the stoning of Stephen the first martyr. He blasphemed Christ, hunted Christians, and facilitated their deaths. Yet, He found victory over regret. He used his past as a motivation for a better future. We can do the same following these steps. (more…)
Stop dreading your alarm clock. Get up early each day to walk with God and to get ahead of your task list. Here’s How…
Waking up early will give you quiet time in the morning to prepare your heart, mind, and body for the day. Awake early to walk with God before the busyness of the day begins. Rise in plenty of time to start your day strong, so when it comes time to perform, you can excel.
Proverbs 6:9–11 “How long wilt thou sleep, O sluggard? When wilt thou arise out of thy sleep? Yet a little sleep, a little slumber, A little folding of the hands to sleep: So shall thy poverty come as one that travelleth, And thy want as an armed man.”
There is nothing quite so discouraging as oversleeping in the morning. You wake up and instantly realize that you are behind. You jump out of bed rushing around to make it to work on time or take care of your responsibilities. You feel behind all day never able to catch up no matter how hard you work. You tell yourself you never want to do that again!
On the other hand, some people get up early regularly but feel so exhausted that they have a hard time getting through the day. Some mornings you will have to push through the exhaustion, but you should not feel that way every day. You may need to consider other changes to your lifestyle such as eating healthy, exercising, or adjusting your overall schedule. Consider taking a 15-minute power nap sometime during the day too. Life is cyclical. At times you will have more responsibilities and get less sleep. Other times you will have more free time and get more sleep. The challenge is sleeping enough to excel! Through it all, remember that you are the master of your schedule. Own it and crush it.
Some people believe that they are not (more…)
The Believer’s most powerful ally is the Holy Spirit Who dwells within. Do you know what He is trying to accomplish in your life? Do you know what He wants to do to help you? Are you allowing Him to do His job?
Before our Lord Jesus Christ returned to Heaven, He comforted the Disciples with the revelation that He would leave them the Holy Spirit as their Helper and Comforter.
Wow! God placed a Member of the Trinity within His children! He is in you right now. He will never leave you nor forsake you. He wants to supercharge your life. There is divine power, wisdom, insight, and more available to you through the Holy Ghost! Yet, most Christians are unaware of His ministry.
The Holy Spirit is the least understood Member of the Godhead, yet He is the One we interact with most intimately in this life. I encourage you to begin the journey of getting to know Him and experiencing all He has to offer.
What is He trying to do in your life today? How can He help you? Are you filled with Him? What limits His work in your life? (more…)
