TOPIC: What Are You Seeing About Yourself
SCRIPTURE: “I said in the cutting off of my days, I shall go to the gates of the grave: I am deprived of the residue of my years. I said I shall not see the LORD, even the LORD, in the land of the living: I shall behold man no more with the inhabitants of the world.” Isaiah 38:10-11 (KJV)
TREM Daily Devotional 24 July 2022 MESSAGE
Hezekiah cried out to God in his secret place and God intervened. Now, if you read that passage in a hurry, you would have thought that immediately he prayed, God answered. No, God did not just answer because he prayed; more especially when he was coming to God and branding his achievements before God. There is nothing wrong in doing what is right. However, the truth is that, God is good to you because He is good; not because you are qualified. Anything you receive from God is because of His mercy and grace. When you come before God, stop branding your achievements.
The majority of Christians approach God telling Him what they have done. They forget that ever before they arrived, God was already seated and has provided everything necessary for our good. When Hezekiah began to brandish his achievements, he began to spout negative things. From our text, you see that he was already writing his obituary. He began to spout failure. How he would die. How he was not going to come out of the situation.
Just like many believers! When faced with challenges, they get worried about how they will come out and how their businesses will not bounce back. You see, when you are in the secret place, God intends for you to begin to see differently. Stop writing your obituary. Stop making plans to die.
What are you seeing about yourself? Are you seeing yourself bouncing back at the end of that very challenge? Are you seeing yourself pulling through? As for me and my house, we have made up our minds that we are going to take our portion in the land. We are going to give the devil a black eye. That should be your position. Expect only the goodness of God.
