Yours, O Lord, is the greatness, The power and the glory

Yours, O Lord, is the greatness, The power and the glory, The victory and the majesty; For all that is in heaven and in earth is Yours; Yours is the kingdom, O Lord, And You are exalted as head over all.

1 Chronicles 29:11 NKJV

The God we serve is a mighty God.  All glory and honor belong unto Him.  He has saved us by His grace and His mercy.  He leads us to victory in all things and He holds us in the palm of His hand.  He provides for every need and we are never lacking.

Sometimes we can get caught up in fixing our eyes upon our circumstances and forget about how awesome the God we serve truly is.  He has created all things by simply speaking all things into existence.  This alone shows us that any circumstance in our lives can be changed by a single word from His mouth.  But He uses the difficulties we face to shape and refine our character.

In our humanity we desire to be comfortable all the time.  But for us to grow we must be challenged.  It is when we are challenged that our faith grows and we grow in maturity.  No matter how difficult the challenge we face, the God we serve is always greater.  Jesus has overcome and therefore we have victory because Jesus has overcome.  Let us fix our eyes upon Jesus and simply prepare our hearts and lives daily for the last trumpet call.  There is coming a day when the trump shall sound and the bride of Christ shall go home to spend all eternity with our Lord in His kingdom.

1 Chronicles 29:11

“Yours, O LORD, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, indeed everything that is in the heavens and the earth; Yours is the dominion, O LORD, and You exalt Yourself as head over all.”‭‭1 Chronicles‬ ‭29:11‬ ‭NASB‬‬

All glory belongs unto God. He has created us to be in relationship with Him and to use our lives to glorify and honor Him. 

Under the old covenant they had the temple in which the presence of God was in the Holy of Holies. But under the new covenant the Holy Spirit lives within us. Where ever we go we take the presence of God with us and impact the world around us.
