Devotional: Glorifying God With Our Lives
Christian Devotion about living our lives to glorify God
With this in view, we constantly pray
for you, that our God will count you worthy of your calling [to faith] and with [His] power fulfill every desire for goodness, and complete [your] every work of faith, so that the name of our Lord Jesus will be glorified in you [by what you do], and you in Him, according to the [precious] grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.
- 2 Thessalonians 1:11-12 (AMP)
We magnify God by making Him much greater
in our lives than what we are. When we 'glorify' Him in our lives, we give Him praise and adoration and reveal God's character
through everything that we say and do. It's bringing Him honour in how we live our lives—representing Him well! It's
giving praise & worship in every moment of every day—in the mundane moments and in the highlight moments. It's in lifting
Him up higher, revealing His splendour and majesty. It's in giving Him full credit for everything we do and for all our
spiritual growth—acknowledging that it is God who has given us our gifts & talents. It is God who has given us a brain to
use for His purposes and who also helps us train and gain new skills. Our whole being is created by God with all our gifts
& abilities, whether in the natural or the spiritual, they have all been given to us from our loving Father. And this is
all the more reason to give God all the glory!
Living a life that glorifies God
is living a life fully surrendered to Him—exalting Him in every way and in every moment of life, through the highs and
through the challenges. Our desire should always be to glorify God with our lives. Even when going through the tough
seasons of life, glorifying God in the midst of it by worshiping Him and keeping Him central in our minds and hearts,
raises our spirits and ignites our faith so that we can have hope and an assurance that God holds us in His hands—and
that He watches over us.
In everything, His name is to
