FROM WHERE COMES YOUR SUCCESS?
Now then, tell my servant David, ‘This is what the Lord Almighty says: I took you from the pasture and from following the flock to be ruler over my people Israel. – 2 Samuel 7:8
David was nearing the end of his life. The prophet Nathan was responding to David’s idea to build a temple where the Ark of the Covenant would stay. God reminded David through the prophet of his roots and where He had brought him from. God took David from the back side of the desert looking after sheep to become the king of Israel. God reminded David that He cut off all of his enemies for his sake and the sake of His people, Israel. What God was telling David was that it is he Lord who has made David what he is.
Have you ever been tempted to look at your accomplishments with pride as if it was by your own wisdom an achieved success? Have you ever thought your prosperity your own ingenuity? The greatest temptation some of us will ever face is pride of accomplishment. If we think our success is a result of our own effort we deny God and open the door to pride. The Bible says, “A man’s pride brings him low, but a man of lowly spirit gains honour” (Prov 29:23).
Success can be a greater test than adversity. “Not every man can carry a full cup. Sudden elevation frequently leads to pride and a fall. The most exacting test of all to survive is prosperity,” said Oswald Chambers. Success can be a breeding ground for complacency with God and pride Do you have a proper understanding of who you are?
Do you understand that it is God who has given you the ability to succeed and prosper? God is the source of all good things. He is the source of success and prosperity.
Prayer: Give thanks and praise to God for all your achievements this year.
Scriptural Reading: 2 Samuel 7:1-12
