Who Did It?
2 Chronicles 6:4: Blessed be the LORD, the God of Israel, who has kept the promise he made to my father David.
A friend I have started and led a fantastic ministry from about 1950 to 1990. Over those years, thousands of young people were converted. Many went on to have their own work for God. Many others grew in grace and became closer to Jesus.
After retirement, this lady decided to write a book about her experiences. She wanted those who supported the ministry to see all that God had done. She wrote the book and finally had it published. It was called, “God Did It!” She wanted anyone who read the book to know her ministry wasn’t her idea, or her doing. God was involved from day one. And anything good that came from it was because of God.
In the same way, King Solomon built a tremendous temple in Jerusalem. It became on the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. However, when it came time to show the world what he had done, Solomon took no credit. He proclaimed that God had answered prayer. God had enabled the workmen to fashion the temple. And the result was all God’s doing. God did it from beginning to end.
That is the way you will always want to work in God’s kingdom. Let God lead, involve him through prayer at every step. In that way, your work will last and God will be mightily pleased.
Prayer: Lord, help me to step aside and let you do it the way you want. Amen.
