The desire of God for his children is to be great (Jeremiah 29:11). God never intends his children to be average, talk less of being little or small. Hence in Proverbs 4:18, the Bible unequivocally stated that the path of the just is like the shining light, that shines more and more unto the perfect day.
The word greatness is entirely reserved to God and He alone can make one great (Psalm 75:6-7, 1 Samuel 2:8).
God called out Abraham and made him great (Genesis 12:1-2, 24:1), He singled Isaac out in a famine land and made Him very great (Genesis 26:12-14). He also blessed Jacob and made him great (Genesis 30:43, 32:9-10, 28).
The Bible says “…if we belong to Christ, then we are Abraham’s descendants, heirs according to promise” (Galatians 3:29). And the promise is guaranteed to all the descendants, not only to those who are of the Law, but also to those who are of the faith of Abraham… (Romans 4:16).
In line with this revelation, the month of August is proclaimed:
Brethren remember that is those who are of faith are sons of Abraham (Galatians 3:7). Therefore, if anyone is to partake of this greatness, let him work by faith and see God as solely the source of greatness.
Jesus asked His disciples, “when I sent you without purse, bag or sandals, did you lack anything?” “Nothing,” they answered (Luke 22:35). His disciples never lack anything even though they went out without external supply or support. Our God is able to supply us with the grace of greatness without any external supply or support (Philippians 4:19). Let us stop looking at the wrong source and start looking unto Him because our help is in His name.
