Wherefore have we fasted, say they, and thou seest not? Wherefore have we afflicted our soul, and thou takest no knowledge? Behold, in the day of your fast ye find pleasure, and exact all thy labours. Isaiah 58:3

It has become normal in our time to find people questioning the reason why they are where they are. For some, God has to be held responsible when they don’t get that Job, or lose a loved one, or lose the house while gambling. They think that because they give God 3 out of 168 hours in a week, God owes them something.

MORE: SUCCESS ATTITUDE – By Pastor David Okoye

MORE: Be Diligent – By Pastor David OKOYE

It has become normal for many especially in this part of the world, to use God as the explanation for their failures but never for their successes. Ask such people why they have not gotten to where they ought to get to, and they will tell you that they are waiting on God’s time. Or that it was not God’s will for them to graduate at the top of their class because the unbeliever that did so, paid someone off, or get called for a Job after that interview. But turn the table around and ask them how they managed to become so successful in their business, or their secret to a healthy and happy home, and you will never hear that the Church, or God is the reason for their success.

It now becomes some special skill they have mastered, or the new Mentor they have, or simply put, because of how awesome they are. This attitude is as heartbreaking as it is sad.

You see, this didn’t start today. Take a look at the questions the children of Israel asked in our opening text.

Wherefore have we fasted, say they, and thou seest not? Wherefore have we afflicted our soul, and thou takest no knowledge…

To these people, they have done the penance for God to bless them. They have deprived themselves of physical satisfaction so God has to notice.

Whenever people ask such questions the answers are often the same. You see, the God we serve is righteous and just. He is not moved by a certain show of humility or obedience. He is moved by the right application of the Word of God in faith.

Obedience the right way is necessary for the right results. If it seems as if the principles of God are not working for you then you’ve got to ask yourself what you are doing wrong.

The Word of God is truth, it does not change; it will bear the same result every time it is applied rightly.

My life is fruitful because I apply the Word of God rightly. I am making tremendous progress. Amen

Hebrews 4:12
