Giving God the Glory
The promises of God are true. He is worthy of our praise. No one can do what the Lord does. He is faithful even when we are not. You got up this morning. You have breath in your body and are moving about. Did you you say thank you to the Lord? Did you praise Him because you got to see another day? Are you in comfort and warmth? Did you say thank you for your spouse, your children, your mom or dad? Answering these questions everyday are just part of the reason for praising God. Are you missing any of these things? Praise Him anyway. You are still here and there is still hope. What are you grateful to God for today?
The above paragraph was the Precious Ponder. I wanted to add a little more thought to this subject. Praising God glorifies Him. How do you glorify God if you don’t praise Him? Giving thanks and praising Him shows that you you recognize the Lord and shows that you are cognizant of your blessings from Him. There is always much to complain about. Praising God takes your mind off the negative and reminds us that God is still in control no matter what it looks like, no matter what is going on around us. When the praises go up, the blessings come down.
Let us give God the glory that’s due Him. He is worthy of our praise. Let everything that has breath praise the Lord!
