[The Glory Unveiled]
“If God’s grace doesn’t help the builders, they will labor in vain to build a house. If God’s mercy doesn’t protect the city, all the sentries will circle it in vain.” [ Psalms 127:1 TPT ]
It is very easy to attribute the glory of God to things we had no hand in, a mistake arising from being blind to God’s working grace behind the scenes. Nothing in the visible realm is self-sustained; everything in this world relies on something from the invisible realm—the realm of God—to run smoothly. Despite this, we often deceive ourselves into thinking we are the reason for what happens to us. Builders may pride themselves in skills, but their craftsmanship’s efficacy lies not in their skills alone; it is the element of grace that gives purpose to skills, ensuring labour is not in vain. Without grace, every labour is futile—the watchman watches in vain, the farmer plows in vain, even the preacher preaches in vain. God’s grace, like icing on the cake of man’s effort, gives it true beauty and identity. In light of this, it is better to involve God from the project’s beginning to avoid fruitless hassle and empty labour. You can choose to labour in vain or work with God’s grace backing you, but when you do, refrain from taking the glory for yourself. Taking God’s glory is the shortest path to destruction; thus, seek the grace of God before initiating any project, regardless of your skill or experience and then, you can be sure of unquestionable success.
