We talk a lot about the power and might of our God. I think it’s poignant to remember that He displays His power and might for His glory—not ours. When we are invited into the presence of our King it is always so that He would be magnified. Similarly, when He moves mightily on our behalf and His power is displayed through His hand at work in our lives, it is always for His glory. Never ours.
“But I have raised you up for this very purpose, that I might show you my power and that My Name might be proclaimed in all the earth.”-Exodus 9:16 (NIV)
In our weakness, we are made strong by His grace and in His presence. There is no way in us that would ever equate to righteousness and yet He makes a way by the power of His presence to be reconciled and deemed worthy of any good work. All for His glory.
In light of this truth there is only one thing we can do; thank Him for His power. Then tell Him, today, how His ways are higher than your ways. Thank Him for the way He has paved for you, by His mighty and glorious power at work in your life. And lastly, repent for participating in anything less than belief in His power and majesty. Simply and beautifully receive His forgiveness. Rebuke the enemy’s schemes to thwart His goodness in your life… and replace that space in your heart with thankfulness for the ability to experience His mighty power.
It’s always and forever all for His glory.
