"So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God." (1 Corinthians 10:31).
"The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of His hands." (Psalm 19:1).
I wanted to include these verses today, because they reminded me to recognize that nothing we have is ours apart from the will of God. All our talents, abilities, even our possessions, are ours because God has allowed them into our lives. When we use these resources for HIS kingdom, then God receives all the glory… just as it should be.
In addition, when we glorify God, the glory of God will return to us! Isn’t it great how He’s always thinking of us and our benefit?! :) For example, when we glorify the Lord, we will become more like Him and, therefore, we will experience the things God has for us such as joy, peace, and understanding.
So tonight I challenge us to ask us these questions: Are you glorifying God? Are you glorifying God in your work and with your time? Are you glorifying God in your conversations in what you say and what you choose not to say? Are you glorifying God in what you read and in what you watch? Are you glorifying God in what you eat or what you wear? Remember: " So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God." (1 Corinthians 10:31).
I pray that today you are inspired to ask yourself these hard questions and when you know the answers, make necessary changes to glorify the Lord even more than you thought imaginable! May you experience humility and love from the One who created all things.
