Don’t try to help God out

By -

Well, I had been struggling with this too often. Always taking a step forward by myself and I can assure you it never works out find. I have now with time learnt how to involve God in every little thing I get myself into, BEFORE HAND.
When God gives us His Word, He expects us to totally trust and rely on Him to bring it to pass. But when sometimes we don’t physically see what God has promised, the feeling of the Lord being a little bit slow in delivery of His said promises sets in. Some of us try to help or fix things for him, our own way. In Mark 13:31, Jesus says ‘Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words will never pass away.
Let’s take an example of Abraham and his wife Sarah. Genesis: 17:5. God promised Abraham that he would be a father of many descendants/nations. Ten years down the line, they couldn’t see any descendants not even a child from Sarah. Sarah go worried as she was past the child bearing age and still had o child. She therefore proposed that Abraham go with Hagar, their Egyptian maid: she said, maybe God’s word would come to pass through Hagar. Do you see what they did here? They decided to fix the problem on their own. They decided to step into the situation, proffering solution to ‘God’s Delay.’
Indeed a child was born from the Abraham and Hagar relationship- Ishmael. This singular act of unbelief brought frustrations to Sarah, incalculable problems to Isaac and his seed, and even the World today.
You already know after reading Genesis that they later bore a child, despite her menopausal age. The Lord never fails or disappoints. He however wants us to mix His promises with our Faith; this is what brings about the reality in the ‘now’ of our lives. Faith is now. Hebrews 11:1
I will leave you to meditate on Hebrews 10:23
Best Wishes.
