30 To bring back his soul from the Pit, that he may be enlightened with the light of life.
Today’s Inspiration: For every wilderness experience, God has a reason. He is always luring man back to him at all costs to bring back their souls from the grips of Satan that they may see light throughout their life. Job 33:30.
Today someone shared that self trust is the secret to success. This is contrary to God’s word which commands us to trust Him with all our heart and not reason in our heart. Proverbs 3:5. We are to honour the Lord with our possessions so that we will always have abundance in our life v9-10. God repays a man according to his work , Job 34:11. Without him we can do nothing. John 15:5.
Yesterday someone shared with me a story of a 40-year-old multi-millionaire doctor who lost his life to Lung Cancer. All his riches could not heal him. He was too stubborn and arrogant to come back to God even though he was a Christian for 20 years but left God to strive for riches. Finally God made His presence known and by God’s mercy he gave his life to the Lord. Thank God his soul is saved but he could not enjoy his riches that he strived for all his life. How pathetic!
God makes man to find a reward according to his ways. Job 34:11.
We can never challenge God with all our arrogance and stubborn ways. He formed us and knows our ways. We can never thwart His plan. God’s ways are always higher than our ways. Isaiah 55:8.
If he had given his life to the Lord with miraculous disappearance of his tumours through His friends intercession, would he be healed and be a testimony for Jesus? God knows the heart of man. There are some He heals and others He brings back with Him. He knows the heart of man and do not want us to lose our salvation. This man was a Christian for 20 years but backslided to pursue wealth. Only wealth attained God’s way is permanent.
Are you a destiny pursuer or wealth pursuer? He has a destiny for us. Discover it by walking with Him.
