GREATNESS IN LIFE IS FROM GOD!
You shall increase my greatness, and comfort me on every side (Psalm 71:21).
Greatness in life does not come through wealth and fame but from God. It is only God that can make one great in life without sorrow being attached. God’s greatness in life brings comfort and joy on every side. The Bible says in the opening text that You shall increase my greatness, and comfort me on every side. Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that greatness in life does not come from any other source except from God only. When God increases your greatness in life, there is neither one nor power that can bring you down no matter what forever.
The Bible gave us a vivid case study with the life of Abraham who was living all his life in his father’s house. At the age of 75 years, he was still squatting with his wife in the village in his father’s house. But God visited and changed his story thus, “…Get out of your country, from your family and from your father’s house, to a land that I will show you” (Genesis 12:1). Therefore, everyone’s greatness in life lies in his absolute obedience to God’s Word. It is only God that has the ability to give true greatness in life forever.
Everyone should be mindful of the fact that greatness in life does not come neither from the east nor west but from God only. Therefore, do not for any reason give yourself to deception. That is the reason why the Psalmist declared thus, “For exaltation comes neither from the east nor from the west nor from the south” (Psalm 75:6). In fact, a Christian is expected to take note of the fact that his greatness in life is neither in his hand nor anyone’s hand but only in the Hand of God who is the Alpha and the Omega, the Creator of heaven and earth. If God does not make you great in life, no one can do otherwise because greatness in life is from Him only and forever.
Daily Tip: Every Christian should be mindful of the fact that greatness in life is from God; therefore, he should never for any reason give himself to deception by thinking otherwise forever. Shalom!
