Give God glory
Yours, O Lord, are the greatest, the power, the glory, the victory, and the majesty; for all that is in heaven and on Earth is yours.
1 Chronicles 29:11.
Earlier in the chapter, David had ask leaders to contribute to the building of the temple. Each leader contributed much of their possession. The people as well as David were happy to see how the leadership willingly gave the best of what they had to the work of the God. Just moments after the giving, David began to pray. As I read the passage I could feel the warmth of his heart and how grateful he was to God for allowing the leadership to give so willingly.
Many times in life we see great things happen in our midst and we forget that it is God who made it possible. If it had not been for God’s provision, the leaders who have gold , iron and bronze would not have been able to do so.
David who knew that every good thing came from God began to pray “Yours, O Lord, are the greatest, the power, the glory, the victory, and the majesty; for all that is in heaven and on earth is yours.
In the same way, we too should declare the greatness, power and majesty of God! Everything on earth and in heaven belongs to him. When we see great things in our midst, we should give him glory!
Sometimes we get caught up in the rush of life, and we become so busy, that we forget to pray and give God our best worship
In times of miracles, we sometimes give honor to those who God would have used for his purpose to be fulfilled and we forget that it is God who is using those who help us
ALWAYS REMEMBER THAT EVERYTHING GOOD IS FROM GOD, THE NEXT TIME YOU EXPERIENCE GOODNESS, GIVE GOD THANKS FIRST
