GLORY TO GOD
ONE OF THE MOST BASIC WAYS TO BRING GLORY TO GOD IS SIMPLY BY OBEYING HIS VOICE….
Romans 4:18-21 New Living Translation
18 Even when there was no reason for hope, Abraham KEPT HOPING—BELIEVING that he would become the father of many nations. FOR GOD HAD SAID TO HIM, “That’s how many descendants you will have!” 19 And Abraham’s faith DID NOT weaken, even though, at about 100 years of age, he figured his body was as good as dead—and so was Sarah’s womb.
20 Abraham NEVER WAVERED in believing God’s promise. In fact, his FAITH GREW STRONGER, and IN THIS, he brought glory to God. 21 He was FULLY CONVINCED that God is ABLE TO DO whatever he promises.
Verse 20 says… “and in this, he brought glory to God”….
The kind of FAITH that BRINGS GLORY TO GOD…is the kind of FAITH that ACCEPTS the will of God, even when it differs from what we think, desire, or even can fully understand.
Proverbs 19:21 Amplified Bible
21 Many plans are in a man’s mind, But it is the Lord’s purpose for him that will stand (be carried out).
Church, in case you forgot….that’s what the Sovereignty of God looks like.
Right in the middle of your 5 year plan He will come in and SWITCH things up…just when it seems like smooth sailing He will cause a SHIFT in our plans and do things in unconventional ways. And here is where FAITH that brings Glory to God comes in…He will call for a CHANGE whether we like it or not, whether we prefer it or not, or whether it was our idea or not!
If or when God calls for a CHANGE…pls remember this…
At that time…CHANGE is what pleases God.
God Bless You.
