“For they did not gain possession of the land by their own sword, nor did their own arm save them; but it was Your right hand, Your arm, and the light of Your countenance, because You favored them.” (Psalm 44:3, NKJV)
The world elevates those whom it proclaims are “self-made” individuals. Many of these people bask in the glory given to them.
In reality, all of life is sourced in God. Psalm 44:3 shows believers that we are not self-sufficient people who can claim successes of our own making. The Lord makes it clear that possession of the Promised Land didn’t come from anything his people did, but from the hand of the Lord. Therefore, any glory should go only to God.
