“Then answered Jesus and said unto them, verily, verily I say unto you.
The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do:
for what things so ever he doeth, these also doeth the son likewise.”
(John 5:19 KJV)
READ: John 14:8-21
More often than not, the reason why we want to do things like others is that we compare ourselves with our colleagues, friends etc. We do not focus on the Father to see what He is showing us. If only we can take our focus from men, we would blaze trails unheard of. Little wonder it is written, ‘‘They comparing themselves with themselves are not wise.”
Do you know you cannot succeed in things God has no hand? Recall, that men were succeeding in building the Tower of Babel, had God not intervened. Do not waste your time and energy in becoming a success in what God is not involved. Is God your Father? Can you see what the He is doing? Remember, “…what things so ever He doeth, these also doeth the son likewise.’’
O Lord, let me see what You are showing me in Jesus name, let me hear what You are saying in Jesus name. Amen.
