GREATNESS THAT COMES FROM GOD

image
Gen 12:2
And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing:
(KJV)
One thing is certain; if you walk with God you are marked for greatness. Abraham was known as the 'friend of God', and God bestowed on him greatness. Moses talked to God as a friend, and God bestowed on him greatness. It shows that there is a seed of greatness in everyone, the closer your walk with God, the more your greatness manifests. It is easy to understand greatness in terms of fame, wealth and power. What makes the difference in the greatness that comes from God is the wholeness. 
King Solomon is one man who experienced greatness that comes from God. God said He would bless Solomon. In Ecc 3:14, King Solomon said 'I know that, whatsoever God doeth, it shall be forever: nothing can be put to it, nor any thing taken from it: and God doeth it, that men should fear before him'. Solomon also remarked in Prov 10:22 'The blessing of the Lord, it makes rich, and he adds no sorrow with it'. In other words, the greatness that comes from God is complete and total- nothing missing, nothing broken. Men run after wealth and lose their health, God gives both. Men run after fame and lose their dignity, God offers both. Our Lord Jesus said when we seek God; 'ALL THESE THINGS' shall be added unto us. (Matt 6:33).
Go into today determined to seek the greatness that comes from God. Follow the precepts of God in your family, career, business and ministry and trust God to increase you in all spheres.
Prayer: Lord God, I desire the greatness that comes from You. Let your glory in my life showcase the superiority of your principles. In Jesus' name. Amen.
