Don’t Give Glory Or Admiration To Humans, Give It To Jesus Christ!

One of the weaknesses I have had in my walk with Christ is overly admiring other servants of God. One thing we must remember is that it’s Christ’s power and wisdom that works through people, it’s not their own!

For instance do you know someone who can pray for the sick and they are healed? It is not them, it is Jesus! Do you see someone who understands the Bible very well? It is Christ’s Holy Spirit who gives them understanding! Did you hear a sermon/ message that encouraged you in a hard time? It is Jesus who gave that person the sermon/message! Christ gives those gifts/abilities to people in order to help other believers. Therefore, when God is using someone in our lives, let us not give glory/admiration to that person but to Jesus Who is using them!

Psalm 62:11
God has spoken once, Twice I have heard this: That power belongs to God.

Only Christ Fulfills

For many years I tried to find fulfillment from being in a relationship. When that didn’t work, I tried finding fulfillment in my career. I never had peace living that way because my joy went up and down depending on how those areas in my life were going. God taught me when we find our fulfillment or meaning in a relationship, career, sport, degree or etc rather than Jesus, that idol we made for ourselves will eventually leave us feeling empty. 
Have you been searching for fulfillment outside of God? Pray for Jesus to fill your heart with His love and help you be satisfied in Him. 

“Why do you spend money for what is not bread, And your wages for what does not satisfy? Listen carefully to Me, and eat what is good, And let your soul delight itself in abundance.” (Isaiah‬ ‭55:2‬ ‭NKJV‬‬)
