Behind the scenes

Many times, because God uses people to bless us, we begin to give all the glory and appreciation to the human beings he used. Don’t get me wrong, when people bless us, in whatever way, we show appreciation to them, but not at the expense of God. Afterall, God isn’t going to come down from heaven to bless us, He would use people. If he wasn’t that person, it could have been someone else.
Sometimes, we need to put our human reasoning aside and look at the big picture. Logically, it may seem like it’s all the work of the person in question, but the bible tells us in Proverbs 21:1 The king's heart is in the hand of the LORD, as the rivers of water: he turneth it whithersoever he will, how much more mere men!
The safety of your job is not really in the hands of your manager. Your success in your studies is not determined by your lecturers. Your safety as you commute daily is not in the hands of the bus/train driver, not even determined by the state of the roads. Having said all this, Jesus will only come as far as you let Him. If you don’t invite Him to be in charge in every single area of your life, He won’t force Himself in and you life will continually be tossed about by the forces of nature; economic recession, diseases, unemployment, you name it.
So now, I put it to you, who would you rather prefer to handle your affairs; the Creator of all creatures or the Creator’s creatures? Don’t waste any more time, allow Jesus in. He is only a prayer away!
