Walking in God’s Favor: I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord. Plans to prosper you and not harm you; plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV)
Prayer Is The Level 4 Steward’s Link That Connects Us To The Source
Daily communion with God in prayer is the source of power and purpose in the Level 4 Steward’s life. In Him we move, live, and have our being. The challenge for Level 4 Stewardship is the ability to stay connected when you can have, do, and be anything you desire.
We agree with Barack Obama, the first African-American U.S. President and former community organizer when he says “Focusing your life solely on making a buck shows a certain poverty of ambition. It asks too little of yourself. Because it’s only when you hitch your wagon to something larger than yourself that you realize your true potential.”
Get Connected To The Source
Level 4 Stewards have more opportunities than ever. It has taken Black Americans in the United States 400 years of prayer, courage, and sacrifice to get us where we are today. Staying connected to God gives the Level 4 Steward a vision that will positively impact many lives and make the world a better place to live.
Level 4 Stewards understand the importance of time and managing your time wisely. Staying connected to God in prayer is always the first priority in Level 4 Stewardship. A Level 4 Steward is aware that the choices you make today will impact future generations, so staying connected to the Source is critical to the success of your life’s mission.
Everything Good That Comes Into Our Lives, Comes From A Connection With the Source
The Level 4 Steward’s thought process is to allow God lordship over your will, dreams and ambition. God’s blessings in the lives of the Level 4 Stewards will be a blessing in the lives of others as well. God empowers the lives of Level 4 Stewards so they are an example of His love, joy, peace, long-suffering, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, and self control.
Connectivity to God is the source of all blessings and love. Connectivity to people is how those blessings of love flow from the Source into the lives of others. Level 4 Stewards understand the spiritual process of connectivity.
Prayer of Blessing: Lord, help me stay connected to You.
