Faithful To God In The Small Things

Updated: Jan 24

Listening to God Creates Fellowship


Luke 16:10

Authorized (King James) Version

{Paraphrased}


10 {And Jesus said} "He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much,

And he that is unjust in the least is unjust also in much".


Create Fellowship with God


Listening to God in the small and trivial things makes God trust you. You think that listening to God means only obeying scripture. But in Acts 9 we see God talking to people like He does to me. Saying things that aren't in scripture. Talking prophetically. Talking like a person; the Person of Mr. Holy Spirit. This shows that God doesn't only speak with scripture verses.

When God talks to you like that, do what He says because it will lead to fellowship with God. This means that He can trust to do whatever He asks, and this leads to Mt. 6:32, 33. That, God will give you what you need before you ask Him, and it'll be like Ps. 23:1: you shall not want. This means that you won't need nothing because God will supply all your need when you listen to Him in the small things (Phil. 4:18-20). Create fellowship with God.


Personal Examples of Listening to God in the Small


Give your brother $4000


Drive 60


Put on your seat belt


Jesus the Source

Of Supply


God is a person like us. We are created in His image (Gen. 1:29). Have you ever had someone ask you to do small things that seem trivial? Like a parent or boss? As you get to know them, they ask you to do small things like take out the trash or do the dishes. Nothing hard. As you listen to them and do what they ask, they trust you and you begin a relationship with them. This is what it's like to have a relationship with God.

The overall scene of God asking you to do small things for Him and you listening is called "Fellowship with God". Soon, God begins to ask you to do bigger things for Him that He provides for. This means that as you begin this fellowship of listening to God, that He supplies all your needs because He is pleased with you. When God is pleased with you, He's not going to ask you what you want for helping Him. He's going to give you what you need before you ask Him so that you have everything you need and more to do bigger things for Him (2 Cor. 9:8).

Pretty soon you're no more doing things your way. You're putting God first. You're listening to God all the time instead of doing things your way. Jesus told us about this in Mt. 6:32, 33 when He said to seek first God's kingdom and ways and all that we need before we ask Him will be supplied by God. Jesus the Source of supply.


Putting God First by Listening to Him

Gives You Your Portion of Supply from God

(Ps. 23)


To put God first is called "listening to God". In the following Bible passage, Mt. 6:24-33, Jesus is talking about listening to God. To put God first means to listen to God by doing His ways instead of your own, or, called listening to God. This fellowship begins by listening to God in


the small things.


Matthew 6:24-33

Authorized (King James) Version

{Paraphrased}


Listen to God


24 {And Jesus said} "No man can serve two masters {because} either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will hold to the one and despise the other. {You} cannot serve God and {money} 25 Therefore I say {to} you, 'Take no thought for your life. What {you} shall eat, or what {you} shall drink. Nor yet for your body, what {you} shall put on. Is not the life more {better} than meat, and the body than raiment? 26 Behold the fowls of the air {because} they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns. Yet your heavenly Father {feeds} them. Are {you} not much better than they? 27 Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit {to} his stature? 28 And why take thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field how they grow. They toil not neither do they spin, 29 and yet I say {to} you, 'That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these'. 30 Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field which today is {here} and tomorrow is cast into the oven, shall He not much more clothe you, O {you} of little faith? 31 Therefore take no thought, saying, 'What shall we eat? or 'What shall we drink'? Or 'Wherewithal shall we be clothed'? 32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek) {because} your heavenly Father {knows} that {you} have need of all these things. 33 But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness {the ways of God} and all these things shall be added {to} you'".


The Voice of God


Jn14:26


Why Listen to God?

To Get Your Portion of Supply from Heaven?

No. To Please God Because You Love Him

(1 Thes. 4:1/ Heb. 11:5, 6; 13:16)


God is telling me that people's conclusion after reading this message is how to get what you want from God like a magic power or magic art. This isn't about magic. This is about fellowship with the Holy Spirit. There is supernatural power in this lifestyle called Christianity. But it is not a magic chant. It is fellowship with a supernatural Person; Mr. Holy Spirit (Acts 8:14-24).

I have to tell you to make my motive clear, that when I wrote this message, I was talking about me listening to God and what the result was: all my supply supplied before I asked God for anything. This is called being rich. God makes people rich or poor that which makes us need God (Phil. 4:10-19). For me, being rich is God's plan for me because I was made poor in this world before I was saved.

When you're born again by the Holy Spirit, listening to God is the meaning of life. There is no greater fulfillment than to listen to God because when you do, you sense His joy inside you because He's happy inside you because you're listening to Him. When you're right with God, you are very happy! That happiness is why I wrote this message. When you please God, He is happy within you and that happiness is what life is all about. That happiness that comes from God from pleasing Him, is why I wrote this message. I'm sharing my insights into Christian values.


Family First

Family Comes Before Ministry and Church

(Ti 1/ 1 Tim. 3)


I'm sharing with you about how to listen to God. You start by doing the small things that got nothing to do with ministry because that's where God will talk to you because you're not in ministry yet. You're in a family. So, God will talk to you first about people in your family. Being in a family prepares us for ministry. If you can't take care of your own family, how can you take care of God's church as a minister? (1 Tim. 3:5) You're a family member before you're a minister. Being from a family makes you a better minister. You're a better family member than you are a minister. So, your family life outside of church ministry, is where God will work first with you. God starts in your family to take you to ministry to other families in your community. This is called an "outreach ministry".

Before I got married last year, God had me giving money to ministries. But giving to ministries is for single people because after I got married, I kept trying to give to ministries. But God told me to give all that money to my wife. Wife comes before ministry. All that money you have is for your wife, not the church. Unless God says different. God gives the man favor to provide for his wife. The reason all that money is coming to you is for your wife (Pr. 18:22). Your wife and family are your ministry. From your family life you learn to be a minister to other families in church. That's God's way of training ministers for ministry. The books of 1 and 2 Timothy are written to beginners in ministry. Start in the small things with your family to begin a work for God.
