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
