Scripture Reading: Hab 1:11 Then shall his mind change, and he shall pass over, and offend, imputing this his power unto his god.
Reflections: Through the prophetic lens of Habakkuk, we are made to see the reason behind the rise and fall of the Chaldean army. The people of Israel wouldn’t repent and sinned continuously. God therefore planned to use the military force of the Chaldeans to judge and punish them. He worked out a plan to boost their military strategy and strength. They became such a powerful and irresistible force to be reckoned with. While pursuing their military conquest agenda, the Chaldeans blundered and offended God. They rather attributed their military success to their god which aroused God’s jealousy and anger. By the orchestration of God, they lost their military might and became underdogs. Like the Chaldeans, the source of our downfalls are often associated with our failure to recognize and acknowledge the grace and provisions of God when we ascend the zenith of life. Don’t attribute the captain of your destiny and success in life to any other except God! Boast in Him alone and at all times!
Prayer: Dear Lord, May i never forget that you are the reason behind my success in life.
Confession: God is the captain of my destiny and source of my success. No one else is and can ever be!
