“And when they came to Nachon’s threshing floor, Uzzah put out his hand to the ark of God and took hold of it, for the oxen stumbled. Then the anger of the Lord was aroused against Uzzah, and God struck him there for his error, and he died there by the ark of God.” 2 Samuel 6:6-7 NKJV
Sometimes, in our desperation to achieve the goals set before us, we try to help God. We forget that He is mighty enough to defend Himself. Though it may be from a place of sincerity, you should know that your attempt to help God puts a limit on what He can do for you, through you and with you. Uzzah thought he was doing a good thing by trying to catch the ark of God – which was God himself. It cost him his life but there was a vital lesson to learn from the story – you cannot help God!
Is there a promise God gave you that is starting to look like He has not acted on it yet? Are you trying to take matters into your hands concerning it? I would love to ask that you take a step back. If you look up the story of Abraham, you will see that some attempts to help God fulfill His promise over our lives too early only will bring about regret, disaster and disappointment. He holds the times and seasons of your life in His hands. So let Him be God all by Himself!
Have a victorious day!
Confession: I trust You Lord. I allow You work on my behalf and I desist from trying to help you fulfil Your promises in my life from today in Jesus name.
