A Promise For You From Bible Promises:
Topic: Man Is Not God [22/01/2017]
For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. Hebrews 4:15. Read: Lk 22:39-46
A man decided to play the role of God Almighty in a play (film). He sat on the throne to attend to the people one after the other. He discovered that every moment, billions of people troop in with one complaint and another. One would complain of lack, hunger, sickness, anger, pain, frustration, hatred, malice, suicide case, abortion, murder etc. When he couldn't bear it, he stood up and said, I cannot be God again if this is what God Almighty goes through every moment attending to all the complaints of all humans on earth. He walked away from the throne. Man can never be God. God is God forever.
Except for divine grace, when Jesus (The Almighty God) took the form of a man on earth, He would have given up on the divine assignment He came to carry out. At the garden, when He considered the pain and the burden of the world, He knew that would break His shoulder, therefore He prayed to God Almighty for strength and an angel came and strengthened Him which enabled Him to go through the death of the cross for the Salvation of humanity. Elijah was divinely strengthened to fulfill his earthly assignment, you too need this divine strength.
* Father, I thank You because man is not God but God is God, please release upon me the strength to fulfill Your vision for my life. Amen
