Danger Of Being Strong.
“And it came to pass, when Rehoboam had established the kingdom, and had strengthened himself, he forsook the law of the LORD, and all Israel with him.” 2 Chronicles 12:1 (KJV)
One common error of Christians is to relax when they think they have succeeded. You know that no fly can perch on a hot pot, but once the pot begins to lose the heat, every kind of fly can then begin to perch on it. No matter the level of success you have or will attain, I plead with you by the mercies of God, do not become strong in yourself. Understand and appreciate the fact that whatever you have become is all a product of God’s grace.
Many people fallen from grace to grass because the stopped depending on God. They started well but they finished poorly, but that will not be the case with you in Jesus name. You will finish strong. No matter the successes, no matter the accolades, may you stay under the canopy of God in Jesus’ name.
Look at the story above, Rehoboam had lost 10 tribes and was ruling only over one – Judah. Yet that was not enough for Him to realize that he needed God all the way. He concretized his position, ensured that his military strength was intact and forgot about God – he forgot about God who brought him into the position and forsook everything about God. Before you condemn him, take a look at yourself – are you still as fervent for God as you were before you got the promotion, got the job, passed the exam, had the baby, got married, or got whatever it was so desired, fasted and prayed about. If you can be honest and evaluate yourself today, then go a step further and retrace your commitment to God. Don’t let your zeal for God go down because of what you have.
No matter the height you have attained, never forget that it is God that gives you power to get the wealth, the job, the promotion, the house, the spouse, the child or whatever that thing is. Keep God’s priority in your life and every other thing will fall into place.
