The Light Daily Devotional – The Dealings of God

Focus: The Dealings of God

The word for today

By nature, man is not inherently humble; it often takes various situations and experiences in life to humble him. Your ordeal in life is meant to teach a lesson by experience!

Scriptural Reference:

“So He humbled you, allowed you to hunger, and fed you with manna which you did not know nor did your fathers know, that He might make you know that man shall not live by bread alone; but man lives by every word that proceeds from the mouth of the LORD. Deuteronomy 8:3 NKJV

Throughout history, we see God orchestrating events and leading people through challenging circumstances to teach them valuable lessons. For instance, the Lord guided the Israelites through the wilderness, not only to sustain them but also to demonstrate that true sustenance comes from more than just physical bread. Your own struggles and hardships in life have a purpose — they are meant to impart wisdom and understanding through firsthand experience.

While many individuals may propose various philosophies about life and attempt to influence people to live by them, God has consistently brought humanity to the end of themselves. He has shown that unless He is the foundation of our endeavors, all our efforts are in vain (Psalm 127:1-2).  It is a reminder that no individual can achieve lasting greatness on their own. God has silenced mighty rulers like Pharaoh and formidable adversaries like Goliath to serve as warnings, reminding us that true strength, grace, and resources come from Him alone.

It is important to realise that no one remains great forever. When life humbles you and presents challenges, it is crucial to humble yourself before God and not shy away from the lessons and experiences that come your way. When faced with difficulties, know that relying solely on your own strength and expertise may not be sufficient to overcome them. Instead, let every situation draw you closer to God and prompt you to seek His guidance and assistance.

Meditation: Reflect upon the ways in which God has humbled you or taught you valuable lessons through the situations you have faced in life. 

Prayer: Dear Lord, Help me to be humble and surrender myself to your plans and purposes in Jesus’ name! Amen!

Emphasis: Humility and dependence on God are essential in navigating life’s challenges. Be mindful of the fact that your strength and wisdom are limited, but God’s power and grace are boundless!

Have a Fruitful Wednesday!
