Provoking God’s Intervention!
“The LORD said to Gideon, the people that are with you are too many for me to give the Midianites into their hands, lest Israel vaunts themselves against me, saying, My hand has saved me.” Judges 7:2
Most of the time, when God is about to intervene His will as a result of our prayers, some people unintentionally stop Him from working, even when the bible reminds us to have faith in God. Proverbs 3:5-6. Trusting in God is telling Him that He is above all things and everything else. Trusting God shows that you acknowledge His power and authority over your life.
Ephesians 2: 8-9 says, “For it is by grace you have been saved through faith, and this not from yourselves; it is the gift of God, not by works, so that no one can boast.” This means that progress or success that comes your way is not by your power but by his grace. That is why you should humble yourself before God and allow Him to perfect His will.
God cannot exist on a system; he is the inventor of the system. That explains when a sinner accepts Jesus as the Lord and Savior, all that he/she had initially will be taken away from his/her personal belongings to his status and his personal behavior. This means Jesus takes humble-minded through the breakdown process, called failure to function.
Therefore, allow God’s intervention that goes through the breakdown process and stays humble, so that your life becomes more meaningful with kingdom blessing, not unrighteous mammon. Allow Jesus to take you through the whole process of salvation and show you the amazing grace of God. Ephesians 1:7 says, “In Him, we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace.”
1. Lord, thank you for your grace and mercy.
2. Father, in any way I have been holding you back from answering my prayers knowingly or unknowingly, I repent of it today in Jesus’ name.
