Are You Giving God Praise, Honor, and Glory?
Solomon after he had prayed at the altar of the Lord and around all of Israel, shouts with a loud voice:
1 Kings 8:56-61
56. Blessed be the Lord, that hath given rest unto his people Israel, according to all that he promised: there hath not failed one word of all his good promise, which he promised by the hand of Moses his servant.
57. The Lord our God be with us, as he was with our fathers: let him not leave us, nor forsake us:
58. That he may incline our hearts unto him, to walk in all his ways, and to keep his commandments, and his statutes, and his judgments, which he commanded our fathers.
59. And let these my words, wherewith I have made supplication before the Lord, be nigh unto the Lord our God day and night, that he maintain the cause of his servant, and the cause of his people Israel at all times, as the matter shall require:
60. That all the people of the earth may know that the Lord is God, and that there is none else.
61. Let your heart therefore be perfect with the Lord our God, to walk in his statutes, and to keep his commandments, as at this day.
Sometimes, we as Christians, do not give God enough thanks and praise for all that he has done for us. He has always been there for us, even when we didn’t deserve it. Why, then, do we not give Him the love, honor, and praise that He deserves?
I challenge you to go out and tell someone that you don’t know, or even someone that you do, what all God has done for you in your life.
If Solomon can praise Him to all of Israel, I think you can to one person, especially, if they don’t know of God’s mercy that He bestows to us.
