Worthy are You, Oh Lord! 2
“I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well.” Psalm 139:14
2 Corinthians 3:5 reminded us that “Not that we are adequate in ourselves to consider anything as coming from ourselves, but our adequacy is from God.” I remember a story after 1588 when England claimed victory, and speaker Crooke was presented to Queen Elizabeth in the House of Lords on the occasion of his election. He said England had been defended against the Spaniards and their Armada by Her Majesty’s mighty arm. He tried to refer to the Queen as a great warrior who saved and gave them victory.
However, the Queen interrupted him and, from her throne, said: “No, but by the mighty hand of God, Mr. Speaker.” It can only take those who are humble to understand the mighty hand of God in whatever they have achieved. Do you recognize the hand of God in your life today, or did you sit back and think, like Mr. Crooke, that you were lucky? I am sure that if we could all be more humble to acknowledge God, He would do more for us.
Colossians 3:17 says, “Whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, giving thanks to God and the Father by Him.”
Take God’s divine counsel and wisdom from scriptures daily. Let the spirit of God guides you in all your ways. Allow God to be your counselor in other to guide you in the way you should go. Psalm32:8 says, “I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you.” God requires a human to be faithful and cooperate with Him in our daily activities.
Do your part and let God be exalted and ACKNOWLEDGE above your desires. Hold on to Jesus because grace comes from him. Let him lead you through the path of righteousness. Romans 11:36 says, “For from Him and through Him and to Him are all things to Him be the glory forever. Amen.”
1. Magnify and exalt the LORD for His name
2. Thank Him for the blessing of another day, another month, and another moment for the opportunity.
3. If thou LORD should mark iniquities, O LORD, who shall stand (Psalm 130:3), my Father, don’t mark my iniquities; shower your mercies upon me in Jesus’ name.
