Man Shouldn’t Define Your Place In Life
During my morning devotion, God laid specific things in my heart as I read Job 38. We will discuss that from onward. I want you to know today that no matter what any man says or declare concerning your life, that man is not God. If that man is not your God so we should not put our trust in men.
2Suffer me a little, and I will shew thee that I have yet to speak on God’s behalf.
3I will fetch my knowledge from afar, and will ascribe righteousness to my Maker.
4For truly my words shall not be false: he that is perfect in knowledge is with thee.
Job 36:17 KJV
Once you go to Job 36:1, Elihuwas the one speaking there, at first he took the stand of God’s prophet saying just give me more time, let me speak on God’s behalf. I came across a version I love
“Be patient with me a little longer, and I will show you thatthere is more to be said in God’s defense”
Job 36:17 GodsWord
Are you thinking what am thinking?
Can a man defend God? NO
6And when they came to Nacon’s grain-floor, Uzzah put his hand on the ark of God to keep it safe in its place, for the oxen were out of control.
II Samuel 6:4 BBE
When the ark of God was about to fall because the horses lost balance, Uzzah graciously dive, hold the ark and help the ark which represented God stand again. God was angry and killed Uzzah.
God was trying to say, men cannot help me. Men cannot defend me. That is the plain truth. This is what makes that man not to be your God.
Men can’t speak in the place of God even anointed men only speak when God has spoken not before he speaks.
10For he has knowledge of the way I take; after I have been tested I will come out like gold.
11My feet have gone in his steps; I have kept in his way, without turning to one side or to the other.
12I have never gone against the orders of his lips; the words of his mouth have been stored up in my heart.
13But his purpose is fixed and there is no changing it; and he gives effect to the desire of his soul.
14For what has been ordered for me by him will be gone through to the end: and his mind is full of such designs.
15For this cause I am in fear before him, my thoughts of him overcome me.
Job 23:10-15 BBE
In Job 23:10 we were told by Job that God has knowledge of what you and I are passing through now. He has knowledge of our predicament and situations, our challenges and problems and also even our failures and disappointment. Yet He did not assist us to overcome it. (Job 23:2)
So Job during his suffering was saying O Lord you know my ways and I am being tested with evil. The big question is was it God that test us with evil?
Does God Test His Children Will Evil
When troubles happen to you, you may want to do something bad. But do not say ‘God is causing me to do wrong things.’ Nothing can make God do anything bad. And God does not try to make anyone do a wrong thing.
James 1:13 EASY
The first thing that comes to our mind while facing temptation is God is tempting me, making me to do wrong things.
I have been faithful in praying and paying tithe yet I am still poor.
I am the most faithful worker in my church coming at maximum 1 hours before every service yet I am still jobless or my job is not paying.
Men always live off by finding someone to blame, so they always blame God for every wrong move and every wrong thing. The attitude of putting the blame on God is not a good one because in James 1:13, it made us understand that God doesn’t cause anyone to do evil.
So while evil exist isn’t God fault. It is the devil that does all evil.
How Does Evil Come
Firstly God permit and authorize everything. God authorizes that problem of yours and that situation.
He gave the devil a go ahead to punish and suffer you. (Job 1:13, 15-20).
God respect altars so much that anything that He gives hear to anything that comes from an altar. So when the devil comes to the presence of God, he cried to him through an altars. During Job’s time the devil spoke through an altar saying “Job only serve you because you have blessed him so much, take away your blessing an you will see the one you boast of deny you to your face”.
When God heard this He said I trust Job, He is an altar to me, He is upright and holy. He won’t deny me by any means, so touch not his life.
What Job should have done in the beginning was what he did at the end, Job continued to face punishment and lack until his altar cried to God.
6That is why I take back what I said, and I sit in dust and ashes to show that I am sorry.“
12So the Lord blessed the latter end of Job more than his beginning:
Job 42:6, 12 GodsWord
All Job needed to say is just this, I am sorry Lord. If Job altar hasn’t cried out to God, he would have died poor.
I said it early the only time men stop deciding your future is when your altar cry out to God.
In the place of altars destinies are been altered.
If you can pray, cried to God then that man will stop been your God.
Let me share this story before I round up this series on that man is not your God.
About last month I received this from Revivalist Iyke Oriaku. A woman chatted him up on facebook and said “Sir, after listenning to your radio program this sunday morning this changed in my life.” She said she lost her husband and a woman threaten her that her husband death was a mistake as the person they wanted to kill is her. That woman said she will come and kill her soon.
Her child started getting strange sickness and that sunday morning having nothing to depend on she just tune to that radio channel. After hearing Pastor Iyke preached she said her hands started shaking and she started blasting in an unknown tongues for the first time in her life.
She then remembered the man of God introducing himself and quickly went on facebook and search for Iyke Oriaku. Thank God after many trial she found him.
Then Pastor Iyke told her that her shaking hands means God want to do something through her. He said there is power in this hands on yours. Immediately he hung up she goes to her sick son and began praying, blasting in uncontrolled tongues. After sometime that child that hasn’t eaten for days began to cry for food, the sickness disappears.
She then went over to her and her husband picture and began to pray. After few minute the woman that threaten her called her begging for mercy. She cried and say please have mercy on me, your powers have become to much I don’t want to die.
I don’t know your problem but I decree every altar rising against you causing that predicament of your life, by the name of Jesus that altars is destroyed now in Jesus name.
Can we just pray wherever we are!!!
An uncle of your promise you that you will get a job after graduation irrespective of your result but when you graduated you came out with second class lower only for him to say “If you had come out with second class upper you would have gotten this job.”
There is something more than this, it is altars that is speaking against you. I said it earlier do not trust in men but invoke God through prayers.
Who is that man that has spoken what God hasn’t spoken in your life?
Who is that man born of a woman that said you won’t see anything good in life?
Who is that woman that has declared that you won’t get your heart desires and you will remain unmarried?
Who is that prophet that told you that you will die poor when God spoke of you in his word, Psalm 34:10
10The young lions are in need and have no food; but those who are looking to the Lord will have every good thing.
Psalm 34:10 BBE
This is what God said concerning his children. God has spoken that those who keep searching and knocking will never lack anything that is good for him.
Don’tput your faith in man he will fail you every time.
Let me ask you this morning, is there any good thing you are lacking?
It is due to either you are not seeking God or you are yet to become a child.
No matter what situation, I can assure you it will come to end if you can become God child’s today and start seeking him passionately.
If you want this promise to follow you and put to end every negative pronunciation from men either your father, mother, prophet, any man born of a woman or any woman made from a man you need Jesus in your life.
Right here and now Jesus can come into your life, make you whole and a child of God. All you need is to close your eyes, just tell him your regrets, tell him your sins and flaws and ask him to have mercy on you. Invite him to come into your life and make you a child of God.
If you just said this prayer, I personally welcome you to the family of God. You are now a genuine Christian and God own very Son.
I will love to encourage you, speak personally with you and pray with you. Kindly chat me up through the contact form.
