What we Steward Grows: 3 Ways to Steward God’s Voice to Bring the Increase

As believers, we are called to steward God’s voice in our lives. This means that we must actively listen for His voice and obey what He tells us to do. When we do this, God promises to increase us and bless us in ways that we cannot imagine. In this blog post, we will explore what it means to steward God’s voice, how to expect the increase, and what it looks like stewarding transition.

But first, what is the Biblical meaning of stewardship? We often associate stewardship with money. But there is far more to it than that. MinistryDesigns.com says this:

“Interestingly, the New Testament word for stewardship comes from the Greek word oikonomos, which basically means the manager of the affairs of a household or in other words, work. This guardianship position is clearly shown throughout the Bible from beginning to end.”

They go on to say:

“In a sense Biblical stewardship is a responsibility, a duty…” – “Biblical stewardship involves going “all in” with our time, effort, sacrifice, talents, and resources…”

1 Peter 4:10 says this,

As each one has received a gift, minister it to one another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.

1 Peter 4:10

Basically, we are to make use of and manage all the resources God has provided us for his glory and the benefit of His creation. So why do we never think of going “all in” with the voice of God? Let’s go on and see how stewarding God’s voice brings an increase in our life.

3 Ways to Steward God’s Voice

Stewarding God’s voice is an essential part of our Christian walk. It means that we are attentive to what God is saying to us, and we are obedient to His leading. Stewardship is often associated with managing resources, but in this case, it means managing the voice of God that He has given to us.

1. Prayer

One of the key ways that we steward God’s voice is through prayer. Prayer is a dialogue with God, where we express our thoughts and feelings to Him, and we listen for His response. Jesus modeled this for us in His own prayer life, where He often withdrew to a quiet place to pray and listen to His Father’s voice. (Luke 5:16)

2. Reading the Word

Another way that we steward God’s voice is through reading His Word, the Bible. The Bible is God’s written voice to us, and it contains everything we need to know about Him and how to live our lives. When we read the Bible, we are listening to God’s voice, and we are learning how to apply His teachings to our everyday lives.

3. Be Open to Correction & Guidance

Stewarding God’s voice also requires us to be open to correction and guidance from other believers who are further along in their faith journey. God never meant for us to go through life alone, and He often uses other people to speak into our lives and help us grow. When we are open to correction and guidance, we are showing our humility and our willingness to learn.

When we hear God’s voice, we must have the courage to obey, even if it means stepping out of our comfort zones or taking a risk. For example, God may ask us to forgive someone who has hurt us, even if we don’t feel like it. Or He may ask us to share our faith with someone who is skeptical. When we obey God’s voice, we are showing our trust in Him, and we are opening ourselves up to His blessings.

Expect the Increase

When we steward God’s voice in our lives, we can expect the increase. This increase may come as blessings, opportunities, or spiritual growth. However, it’s important to remember that the increase may not always come in how we expect it. We trust that God knows what is best for us and that His plans for us are good.

One way that we can expect the increase is by sowing seeds of faithfulness. In Galatians 6:9, we are told,

 And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.

Galatians 6:9

When we remain faithful to what God has called us to do, even in the face of adversity or discouragement, we are sowing seeds that will eventually produce a harvest.

Another way that we can expect the increase is by positioning ourselves for God’s blessings. We do this by aligning ourselves with God’s will and obeying His voice. When we are in the right position, God’s blessings will flow into our lives naturally. This may mean changing our lives, such as letting go of certain habits or relationships that are not in line with God’s will. It may also mean taking steps of faith, such as pursuing a new career or ministry opportunity that God has placed in our hearts. When we will take these steps of faith, we position ourselves for God’s increase.

It’s important to remember that the increase may not come overnight. Sometimes we may have to wait patiently for God’s timing. But when we trust in His timing and remain faithful, we can be confident that the increase will come. And when it does, we can be sure that it will be far beyond what we could have ever imagined.

Stewarding Transition

Stewarding transition can be challenging, but it’s an important part of our faith journey. Transition can come in many forms, such as a change in career, a move to a new city, or a major life event. When we are in a season of transition, we must remain faithful to what God has already told us to do until He speaks the next thing. This requires us to be patient and trust that God will guide us in His timing.

One of the key things to remember during a season of transition is that God is with us every step of the way. He knows what we are going through, and He has a plan for our lives. In Jeremiah 29:11, God says,

 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.

Jeremiah 29:11

When we trust in God’s plans for us, we can have peace during times of transition.

Stewarding transition also means being open to new opportunities and stepping out in faith when God calls us to do something new. Sometimes, God may lead us to a new season of life, and we must embrace it. This may mean letting go of certain things that we are comfortable with and stepping into the unknown. But when we are obedient to God’s voice, we position ourselves for His blessings.

Steward Your Relationship with God

One way to steward your relationship with God is to make time for Him every day. This could mean spending time in prayer, reading the Bible, or simply listening for His voice. When we make time for God, we show Him we value our relationship with Him and that we will prioritize Him above all else.

Another way to steward your relationship with God is to seek opportunities for spiritual growth. This may mean attending a Bible study or small group, serving in your church, or volunteering in your community. When we actively seek opportunities for spiritual growth, we position ourselves for God’s blessings and increase.

Conclusion

As we steward God’s voice in our lives, we position ourselves for His blessings and increase. This requires us to listen actively for His voice, obey what He tells us to do, and trust that His plans for us are good.. Stewarding transition looks like faithfulness until God speaks the next thing. By making time for God every day and seeking opportunities for spiritual growth, we can deepen our relationship with Him and steward His voice more effectively in our lives.

Remember, God has a plan for your life, and He wants you to experience His blessings and increase. We often overcomplicate things when it’s the small things, like listening for His voice that matter most. 

What is one way you are stewarding your relationship with God and what God is saying to you in this season? 

When you steward His voice and remain faithful, you position yourself for His best. As you steward the small things, the increase comes! So, expect the increase, and trust in His perfect timing.
