Popular Gospel Actor and Evangelist, Mike Bamiloye in a recent post on his official Facebook page sends an important message to Christians. He titled it “That None May Take The Glory.” He read the book of Judges 7:2-4 and told the story of Gideon’s battle with the Midianites.
He said that when the Lord begins to trim down your army against a multitude of enemies, it is that you might not claim the glory when He gives you victory. When He slows down your pace and reduces your speed, at times, he does that so that when He eventually brings you to the destination, you will not ascribe the victory to an arm of flesh.
He then asked, “Wonder why, The Lord decided to pick someone like Peter, James and John – uneducated fishermen as His lead disciples, instead of looking for highly educated personalities from the cities of Jerusalem or Samaria? and said that as much as hard work is important to becoming great in life, and diligence in business is required to become successful in business, yet, the Bible says in Ecclesiastes 9:11, “I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all.”
Finally, he said to Heart that the summation of Apostle Paul to the whole matter is in 1 Corinthians 1:26-29. So that is why you must continually pray this major prayer and sing it in song also: “Thy will be done, Oh Lord, Thy will be done! Oh, teach me, Lord, to say, Thy will be done.” May His will be done in our life always.
