Daily devotional: Success and provision is from the Lord

Scripture
Even if you go and fight courageously in battle, God will overthrow you before the enemy, for God has the power to help or to overthrow.” Amaziah asked the man of God, “But what about the hundred talents I paid for these Israelite troops?” The man of God replied, “The LORD can give you much more than that.”
2 Chronicles 25:8-9 NIV

Observation
Amaziah took matters into his own hands and trusted in his own capabilities, wealth, and strength instead of relying on God. Amaziah didn't realize that God grants success and wealth.

Application
Trust in God and look to Him to meet my needs. Don't get caught thinking that I can do it on my own or that I am to thank for my successes.

Prayer
Heavenly Father, thank you for this new day and for helping me get up this morning and run. Thank you for giving me time with my family and time with You. Please go before me and help me to learn from You and phase a meaningful time with You at church. May my worship be sweet before You. He me, Lord, to make my priorities the things that You want me to focus on. I love you!
