GIVING GOD HIS GLORY


"O Lord, not to us, but to your name give glory, for the sake of your steadfast love and your faithfulness,” Ps. 115:1

The Psalmist asked that God’s name, not the nations, be glorified. Too often we ask God to glorify his name with ours. For example, we may pray for help to do a good job so that our work will be noticed. Or we may ask that a presentation go well so we will get the credit. There is nothing wrong with looking good or impressing others; the problem comes when we want to look good no matter what happens to God’s reputation in the process. When you pray, ask yourself, “Who will get credit if God answers my prayer?”

Dear Father, forgive us when we ask amiss or seek things that would rob you of you glory, honor and praise, for you alone are worthy of such. Amen

A PRAYER FOR TODAY


“May your spirit and soul and body be kept strong and blameless until that day when our Lord Jesus Christ comes back again,” 1 Thess. 5:23.

The spirit, soul, and body are integral parts of a person. This expression is Paul’s way of saying that God must be involved in every aspect of our lives. It’s wrong to think we can separate our spiritual lives from everything else, obeying God only in some ethereal sense or living for him only one day each week; Christ must control all of us, not just a “religious” part.

Father, help us give you all that we are, spirit, soul, and body; that your spirit lead us today to glorify you in our walk. Amen
