We need to be careful not to act independently

As for these four young men, God gave them knowledge and skill in all literature and wisdom; and Daniel had understanding in all visions and dreams. Daniel 1:17

God has provided us intelligence and wisdom, so we do well in all things and for our ways to be prosperous. His intention is to give us everything He possesses, but we need to be careful not to act independently just because we have part of his attributes.

Sometimes we confuse his goodness, so we attribute everything that happens to our own capability, but we need to keep in mind that every good gift and every perfect gift is from above. Therefore, man is nobody without God; He is the one who makes us wise and intelligent.

God gave Daniel wisdom and intelligence, and the king found him to be ten times better than any magician or fortune-teller of his Kingdom. But this did not affect his heart. On the contrary, acknowledgement and gratitude in him were so great that he prayed three times a day. Thus, he demonstrated absolute unique independence.

It is sad to see people whom God used, but everything vanished in just a moment, for they drifted away from the Giver. When they dried up, they did not know how to go back to their Spring, for they were so great to their own eyes that they forgot the path that drew them close. Therefore, let us not forget that which makes a man great in the presence of God: while having everything, never consider that one can do it alone.
