“And when they came to Chidon’s threshing floor, Uzza put out his hand to hold the
ark, for the oxen stumbled. Then the anger of the Lord was aroused against Uzza,
and He struck him because he put his hand to the ark; and he died there before
God. ” 1 Chronicles 13:9-10
God is Almighty and All-powerful, All-sufficient and Self-existent God who lives from everlasting to everlasting. He sees all things, knows all things at the same
time. He is the Helper of all and needs no help from anyone, and from Him flows all
goodness and blessings. For a human being or any being to attempt to help this
Almighty God is a terrible mistake and sin, because it is an act of despising,
dishonoring, and reducing God to a person who needs help. Attempting to help
God is a terrible mistake of all time, and that was what Uzza did, he saw that God’s Ark was about to fall and he decided to help God hold it back. God was angry with
Uzza and He struck him to death.
How People Attempt To Help God Today
Many are acting like Uzza today. In your personal life, you attempt to help God
after you are trusting God for a blessing and then take ungodly means to help get
or fast track the blessing. When you are trusting God for a particular job, contract, position or provision and you know God has been working it out for you all along,
but it gets to a point, due to some circumstances and challenges, it seems the
blessing may not get to you; so to avoid further delay or disappointment, you have
to commit a little sin to make things work out. That is the terrible sin of helping the
Almighty God.
God promised you provision, a promotion, a position or a partner, and He was working it out all along, but along the way it got stuck as if it would never succeed
or come to pass if you don’t commit a little sin to help things work, if you don’t tell
little lie, if you don’t reduce your age to get the job or appointment, if you don’t
adjust your information to get the papers and document done, if you don’t
compromise to keep the job or the possession, if you don’t permit per-marital sex to
keep the relationship, if you don’t please people to get their favor, if you don’t give the bribe to complete the process. “Look, everything will fall apart except you do
something now, you can’t say you trust God and fold your hands here, heaven
helps those who help themselves. If you don’t do this, you will miss everything, the
life time golden opportunity.
There is nothing wrong doing it, it is just to help what God has promised and
started in your life, everything works together for God’s glory, He understands.” That is what Satan and people around you will suggest to you in such situation,
even believers, even pastors. But it’s left to you to either trust God fully and let His
will be done in your life or you turn foolish like Uzza in attempt to help God to
perfect what He started in your life.
When God promises or proceeds something in your life, you must trust Him to
perfect it. When things gets tough and stocked or stopped along the way, just keep trusting God, don’t lean on your understanding, don’t be foolish like Uzza in the
name of helping things out. Don’t follow the multitude of ungodly counsel. God who
promised, who started the good work will surely perfect it in His own way, with a
better one even if the one you expected does not work; it is a test of your faith, God
want to see if you really love and trust Him like Abraham who gave his Isaac, and
like David who refused to kill Saul to help God’s plan come to pass in his life. When we trust God with all our hearts, He turns disappointment to reappointment.
If you are a child of God, you need to answer two these questions:
(1) What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against
(2) Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or
persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor
powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other
created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ
Jesus our Lord.
Romans 8:31, 35, 38-39.
Prayer LORD God, You are our Father, our Redeemer and our Helper, help us to trust and
look unto You always for help. LORD, help us to reject ungodly suggestions and
benefits; no matter the condition, to trust You always, no matter the trials or
threats. We ask in Jesus name. Amen
