Understanding The Sharing Formula of God’s Miracle
For every blessing, miracle, wonder or divine help from God, there is a sharing formula, meaning that in the package of blessing and miracle from God into our lives, there is a biblical formula we must follow. Here is how it goes: Every miracle or divine help from God into our lives contains two things which are BLESSINGS AND GLORY, now we are to take the blessings for ourselves and return the glory back to God. God does not need the blessings – the healing, the miraculous protection, provision, promotion, prosperity, progress, procreation, peace, etc. all these are blessings in God’s miracle which are for our benefits. Then after we take the blessings in the package we are to return the glory inside to package to God, the glory does not belong to us.
When God performs miracle in your life, you can share testimonies, you can share the goodness with others, but DO NOT share the glory with God.
When God does something in your life, when God uses you to do something great in life or for somebody or in the work of ministry, either He does it directly in your life or indirectly through you, the blessings are for you and human beings like you, but the praises and glory should be channeled to God.
I talked with a man who explained to me how they exploit petroleum from below; he then said they would extract the petrol from petroleum and channel the gas to LNG because they don’t need the gas. You know the same way we are to do, we must take the blessings and benefits in every God’s package and channel the glory back to God, don’t share it.
Giving Glory To God
1. We give glory to God by living and using the blessings to please God, to serve God better, not to let the blessings (the new job, promotion, business, career breakthrough, marriage, children, etc.) reduce your commitment or service to God, but rather increase it.
2. We also give glory to God by sharing testimonies of God’s goodness and blessings which will in return glorify God and encourage others. Now an African proverbs says, “If your farm yields plenty harvest, you cover it and eat it quietly” That is not scriptural. Many Christians are not sharing testimonies today with brethren because they believe evil people have more power to destroy the testimonies than God who gave the testimonies, and some also don’t want to share testimony so that brethren will not ask for their financial support. But testimony still remains biblical in giving glory to God and encouraging brethren in the Lord.
3. We give glory to God by sharing with others from the materials or provision God bless us with.
4. We give glory to God by referring to God when we talk about the blessings or success or when others try to praise us for it; we let people know it’s not by accident or by our power but by God’s deliberate mercy and power.
Do not share the glory with God, do not accept the glory of God’s goodness in your life as if it’s by your power.
May God’s goodness and mercy never cease in our lives in Jesus name! Amen.
