Ezekiel 17:24–All the trees of the forest will know that I the Lord bring down the tall tree and make the low tree grow tall. I dry up the green tree and make the dry tree flourish. “I the Lord have spoken and I will do it.”
The Lord is the one who brings about prosperity. He is the one who controls the outcome of all that we do. Do we trust in our own strength or are we trusting in Him? Since He is in control of the outcomes, we are to trust in Him and follow Him and allow Him to do what He feels is best for us. Do we trust Him completely in all that we do?
Father, You are in control of all things. I will praise You for Your decisions and I will follow You no matter what the outcome. You give prosperity and You take it away, but I will know that as long as I am obedient to You I will be successful, regardless of the level of monetary prosperity You give.
