DAY 7 - GOD IS WORTHY
God is worthy of our honor and praise and adoration, all of the time and in every situation.
God created all things, is in control of all things, and knows all things. WOW! He truly is worthy of our praise!
We give our praises freely to people like our favorite musicians, actors, athletes, chefs, entertainers, authors, etc. I’m not saying this is necessarily a bad thing, but how often do we take time to give God our praise? The creator of the galaxies, of heaven and earth, the creator of all the people, animals and things we love. It’s unbelievably amazing to me how scientists continue to discover new species of plants and animals every year, how NASA continues to discover new things in space, and how there is still so much to learn about the human body and brain. We continue to discover the wondrous creations of our Lord. He is worthy!
Even with the unpleasant things that happen in life, because we live in a broken and fallen world, He is still worthy of our praise. Even when life feels unfair and too difficult, He is still worthy. On my worst days, He is still in control, and can see the bigger picture that I cannot see, therefore He is worthy!
When I give actual praises to God, I use words like awesome, wonderful, astounding, magnificent and mind-blowing, because He is worthy of my adoration! I do this intentionally, so as not to forget how big and how great and powerful God is!
Take a few minutes with family or friends to come up with a list of all the words you can think of to express your adoration for God. Then share one or two words that are the most meaningful for you and why. Example: When I am giving God verbal praises, I tell Him He is wonderful, not only because He’s the creator of everything, but also because he has blessed me personally so much!
PRAYER & REFLECTION
- Take time today to give verbal praises of adoration to the Lord.
- Make a list of the things that will continually remind you that God is worthy.
- Ask God to give you the eyes to see new things to praise Him for; then share the things you discover with others.
