If we begin to attribute our failure or success to others, we essentially give power and authority to someone other than God. If someone takes credit for our failure or success they are essentially elevating themselves over God. Everything happens for a reason. For those who believe, God has a purpose for our lives and it does not depend on what others can or can not – will or will not do. Know who you are in Christ and give credit where credit is due.
Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
Psalm 146:3-4 Do not put your trust in princes, in mortals, in whom there is no help. When their breath departs, they return to the earth; on that very day their plans perish.
Psalm 34:1 I will bless the Lord at all times; his praise shall continually be in my mouth.
