Often times you may reach out for man’s assistance and it is not forthcoming, or you are blatantly denied.
If you look at it from from a position of the spirit, you will realize that the rejection was redirection toward Elohim, that you may obtain the favor and provision you need.
Saints, God will let no man take His glory, all glory belongs to HIM ONLY!
Deuteronomy 8:16-17 says,
“In the wilderness He fed you manna which your fathers did not know, that He might humble you and that He might test you, to do good for you in the end. Otherwise, you may say in your heart, ‘My power and the strength of my hand made me this wealth.'”
Beloveds, we must be careful to attributing our success in endeavors, wealth creation, and productivity to human efforts and exertion.
Ascribe all to God’s gracious bounty by which prosperity is gained….
If the LORD had not been on our side where would we be?
If He hadn’t been our foundation, we would build in vain!
Father doesn’t want us to say that it was Tom, Dick or Harry that helped us.
Moreover, He doesn’t want them to take glory for themselves and merit, saying it was them who were your help.
Saints, sometimes God will cause men to turn their backs, so our eyes may be turned to Him.
Sometimes He will take us through the wilderness, so we have to depend on and cry out to Him to be fed physically and spiritually.
Listen, Jehovah is the Author and Giver of all the good things you enjoy and will ever enjoy!
