“Whatever the Lord does not have a hand in, is vain!”
Man to love to devise means for himself. To do things without the Lord but Jesus first said to us that without Me you can do nothing. Nothing here means nothing!
John 15:5 I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: FOR WITHOUT ME YE CAN DO NOTHING.
It means to be able to do anything, we must acknowledge the Lord. No wonder
Proverbs 3:5 Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
3:6 IN ALL THY WAYS ACKNOWLEDGE HIM, AND HE SHALL DIRECT THY PATHS.
This should be one of the reasons to seek the Lord or to acknowledge because He will gives us direction. The scriptures says “in all thy ways…” not few ways but in all… That’s why you must understand that except the Lord help you, your labour is in vain
Psalms 127:1 EXCEPT THE LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.
Understand that except the Lord is acknowledged or except the Lord is given the right way, no project will become successful. Brethren, never forget this that, except the Lord gives you a hand, the load will always seem heavy. Acknowledge God because He will always give a way out!
