DOUBLE DESTINY DAILY DEVOTIONAL
Thursday 5 March 2020
1 Sam. 17:45-47; Zech. 4:5 – 8; 1 Cor. 1:26 -29,
IS IT BY YOUR STRENGTH❓
Many people in the world today credit their success, victory and every progress of life, to themselves. They claim that they succeeded by their struggle, hard work, knowing many influential people (nepotism). But any child of God that reasons that way has become a God to himself/herself. God created and expects man to place his total dependency on Him.
God spoke in Zech. 4:6-7 that it was not by the power of Zerubbabel but He, the all-powerful God, will make plain, every mountain that stood or that will rise against him. God also makes it clear that it is not Zerubbabel’s power but by His grace. Where we read also in 1Cor. 1:26-29, the Bible reminds us that God does not regard the mighty but chooses the weak and foolish things of the world to attain unbelievable achievements on earth. That is why He could not use any of David’s older brothers, the ones known and recognized by even President Saul as trained soldiers. He chose to bring down Goliath through David, the almost insignificant among his brethren lest they rise up to boast that it was by their military skill and power. It could only take the power of God to kill such a giant that made the whole army of Israel quake and David acknowledged that. He says, “This day will
the Lord deliver thee into mine hand…”
Do you want God to demonstrate His power through you? Then you must be ready to become a tool in His hands. You must be ready to carry out His instructions to the latter, even if they sound or appear foolish. Bury your wisdom, strength and ability in His all-powerful strength. Submit totally to Him and see Him use you to crush even seeming insurmountable problems to His glory.
CONTROLLING THOUGHTS :
No flesh should glory before God.
Oh Lord, help me to always recognize that it is only by Your strength. Amen.
BIBLE READING FOR THE YEAR :
Job 1-2; 1 Corinthians 1
