Our God Who Delivers
Scripture: Genesis 14:20 And blessed be God Most High,
who delivered your enemies into your hand.”
Then Abram gave him a tenth of everything.
Observation: So many times I think I accomplish things on my own, when all the time it was God. The Christmas party for the military families was all God, but He allowed me to be part of it. As I look back He put me in touch with the people to help invite the guests, He connected me with the people in the church with the heart to serve, He came up with the resources to buy the gifts and take care of all the expenses and He used me to be a blessing. God could have chosen anyone to accomplish what He accomplished that day, but He allowed me to be part of it.
Application: If I think I did anything good I need to look how it was really done and I know I’ll find out it was God doing all the work and allowing me to come along for the ride. The only decision I need to make is if I’m going to be obedient to what God calls me to do or am I going to be selfish and do what I want to do. All of God’s blessing come after obedience and that is where I want to be.
Prayer: My Lord thank you for allowing me to be part of your plan. May I always be available for anything you call me to do. Please increase my faith that I will lay all my trust in you and know that I’m just part of what you are already doing. Thank you Lord for always being there for me.
