DON’T SHARE IN HIS GLORY

TEXT: DANIEL 4:29-35
Whenever God is promoting you or doing something great through you, appreciate Him and give Him ALL the glory. Never attribute the success to your strength, ability or your wisdom, always remember that you are what you are by the grace of the lord, without Him you can do nothing (1Corinthians 15:10). Many people are guilty of this fact, like Nebuchadnezzar, they believe that their wealth, anointing, wisdom, is as a result of the tremendous effort that applied that made them to be successful.
Nebuchadnezzar became rich and powerful that the success made him to forget God; he believed that everything was done by his power and wisdom. “Is not this the great Babylon I have built as the royal residence, by my mighty power and for the glory of my majesty?” (Daniel 4:30) his act of pride cost him his kingdom, his kingdom was taken away from him for seven years. “The word was still on his lips when a voice came from heaven. “This is what is decreed for you, king Nebuchadnezzar your royal authority has been taken from you…. (Daniel 4: 31). After seven years his sanity was restored back, he praised the most high, he honoured and glorifies Him. “Those who walk in pride He is able to humble.”(Daniel 4:37).if you become proud because of the blessing that He has given to you; He knows how to deal with you so that you will be humbled. Whenever God blesses you, always acknowledge Him by giving Him ALL the glory, not partial glory because He will never share His glory with anything or any man. (Isaiah 42:8).
When things are working well with you, when you have great success, if you honour and give God ALL the glory, He will make you greater, this can be confirmed in Nebuchadnezzar’s word “My advisers and nobles sought me out, and I was restored to my throne and I became even greater than before.” (Daniel 4:36).

Go on now! Acknowledge Him for that great thing He’s doing in your life, family, ministry, business and so on, return ALL the glory back to Him so that He would bless you the more.
