Am I God?
One of my great temptations, in the days of my youth, was to rescue everyone.
Little did I know that some of the afflictions that individuals were experiencing came at the hand of God – because I was not paying attention, I was getting in His way.
God used me significantly in those years, with visible signs of gifts – word of knowledge, word of wisdom especially as well as discernment of spirits. The little I was used in my small youth group, I can imagine why these famous tele-evangelists find it so hard to come to terms that they “are not God.” We can never take the place of God.
Yet how many people do you or I know that will run to a healing service from Benny Hinn, just so the best preacher with the gift of healing can pray for a loved one or friend – hoping for a miracle – thus effectively putting a man in the place of God.
Can any one give you that which God denies you? Can any one alter what God appointed? Am I in God’s stead?
It is sin and folly to place that confidence in any creature, which is to be placed in God only.
