Not God

Michael Beck Michael Beck

“… Yet thou art a man, and not God, though thou set thine heart as the heart of God” (Ezekiel 28:2)

We are not God. The world does not revolve around us. All things were created for God’s pleasure, not ours. All those who confuse their status with God’s status can easily praise the wicked and condemn the just.

People are good, not because they do what we want, but because they do what God wants. Maybe they’re displeasing God by pleasing us. People are bad, not because they won’t do what we want, but because they won’t do what God wants. Maybe they’re pleasing God by displeasing us.

Let God be God. Pray that His kingdom come and His will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Worship Him. Be blessed when others are doing the same.
