Honour God

Samuel Dhinakaran
28 Dec
Many wish to be like Mahatma Gandhi who acquired independence for India by following ways of non-violence.  Even today, he has a unique place in the history.  Some desire to become like Sachin Tendulkar in the sports field, as he has etched his name in the history as a winning person.  Some dream in much more different ways. Yes, everyone have this desire to follow the successful people who have recorded their names in the history. Beloved, remember that you are created in a unique fashion, honoured by God and there is none like you!

In 2 Samuel 7:9, we read a promise God made to David, “I have been with you wherever you have gone, and I have cut off all your enemies from before you. Now I will make your name great, like the names of the greatest men on earth.”   God truly honours a person with name and fame, whose heart is filled with willingness to serve Him by some way.  In the Bible, we see David was such a zealous person with a heart that was ready to obey God. See what he says in Psalm 119:8,140, “I will obey Your decrees; do not utterly forsake me....  Your promises have been thoroughly tested, and Your servant loves them.”  He often mentions himself as “Your servant”!  This is why God testified concerning him, ‘I have found David son of Jesse, a man after my own heart; he will do everything I want him to do’ (Acts 13:22).  David was further added with honour by being placed in the genealogy of Jesus Christ!
 
Beloved, the Bible says in Psalm 148:13 as, “Let them praise the name of the Lord, for His name alone is exalted; His splendour is above the earth and the heavens.”  God says, Wherever I cause My name to be honoured, I will come to you and bless you” (Exodus 20:24).  Would you choose to honour and exalt Him? Because He is full of desire to honour your name and bless you like that of David.  Out of his experience with this great loving God, David exalts Him as He raises the poor from the dust and lifts the needy from the ash heap; He seats them with princes, with the princes of his people” (Psalm 113:7, 8).  Believe in this promise. God will make you to be seated with princes!  He will make your name great to be etched in the pages of history.
Prayer:
Lord Jesus,

Help me to experience Your miracle working powerful name in my life. Lift me up from the dust so that I would proclaim Your mighty name among those who do not know You. Let the unique pattern of my nature, which is given by You, bring blessing to many and draw them closer to You.  Help me to love myself as what You have created me. 

In Jesus’ name I pray,

Amen.
