Devotional: He Is So Worthy
Christian Devotion on God being worthy of all power, honour, glory & praise
"Worthy are You, our Lord
and God, to receive the glory and the honor and the power; for You created all things, and because of Your will
they exist, and were created and brought into being." - Revelation 4:11 (AMP)
God is so worthy to receive
glory, honour and power. But how do we give Him the glory due to His name? We know that God already has glory, honour
and power, so how does He receive it from us? As we live our lives for Him, we live in a way that glorifies Him and
brings Him honour. Our lives, as believers, represent Him if we live to the glory & honour of Him—not ourselves!
It's not only with our lips that we glorify and exalt God, but it is also by our lives that we must express this—in
We must remember that He
created us, and we only exist because of His 'will'. Therefore, He wants us to live a life that brings Him all the
glory and honour He deserves, and in so doing, we show Him that He is so worthy to receive our adoration—above
anything or anyone else! We need to see God as 'worthy'—worthy of all our praise and worship, and value Him more
than anything else in our lives. Maybe we need to pause and consider the things in our own lives, whether there is
anything we value more than the Lord—and ask God to help us to desire it less and Him more. Fasting from it, from
time to time, may be a good way of honouring God in that area and putting Him back in His rightful place—the throne
of our hearts. And He in turn, gives us a life to live that we can really enjoy and have in abundance. He has a
purpose and plan for each of us, and we have created value.
We must never bring dishonour
to Him or to His name by our actions or thoughtless words—it's so important to be mindful of this. It's vital that
we are mindful of 'how' we live out our faith before the watching world—and God can help us with this as we continually
give ourselves over to Him. He empowers us through His indwelling Holy Spirit.
In every little way, in
the details of our lives, let us glorify God the Father and bring Him honour—because He is so worthy!
