(Two Ways To Give God Glory)
TO THE BIBLE Romans 4:20 AMPC
“No unbelief or distrust made him waver (doubtingly question) concerning the promise of God, but he grew strong and was empowered by faith as he gave praise and glory to God”
LET’S TALK ➡
There’re two major ways of giving glory to God. The first one is to testify. And how do you testify? There’re three ways to testify; the first is by declaring what God did for you before the Lord Himself. Secondly, you testify with your offering. Many don’t understand the power of the offering; it’s a testimony. When you give God your offering, it’s not a collection; it’s a holy thing to do before the Lord. As you give it, you’re testifying and giving glory to Him in your life. Read about Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, David, and his son Solomon; they all worshipped with offerings severally.
The third way to testify is to tell others; make known to others that which the Lord has done in, with, and for you. Thus, you live your life before others every day, in faith, and manifesting His righteousness. So, when people see you and say, “This fellow never gets discouraged no matter what happens. He always stands his ground on the Word. He must really trust in the Lord!” That’s a testimony. These three form the number one way of giving glory to God.
The second way of giving glory to God is by speaking or shouting “Glory!” This is revealed in Psalm 29:9 (NIV): “…And in his temple all cry, “Glory!”” Did you notice it doesn’t say, “…everyone should whisper Glory!” You can, therefore, imagine how Abraham must have lived; he was constantly shouting “Glory,” in spite of his precarious condition in the eyes of other men. We do that too a lot of times when we’re led by the Spirit to shout “Glory!” It makes no difference where you are, or what you’re facing; irrespective of the daunting task or challenges, shout “Glory!” As you do, the Lord’s presence and power will be manifested in your situation!
17 So Jesus answered and said, “Were there not ten cleansed? But where are the nine?
18 Were there not any found who returned to give glory to God except this foreigner?
19 And He said to him, “Arise, go your way. Your faith has made you well.”
Dear Father, I thank you for your kindness, faithfulness, and love. I thank you for the miracles you’ve performed in my life. I’ll declare your mighty works and tell of your grace to all around me. Great are you, Lord, and greatly to be praised, now and forever, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
