DAY 10 SUNDAY: MAY 2020

GOD GIVES HONOR AND GREATNESS IN LIFE!

Both riches and honor come from You, and You reign over all. In Your hand is power and might; in Your hand it is to make great and to give strength to all (1 Chronicles 29:12).

Honor and greatness in life come from God only. If God does not honor you in life, you cannot be great no matter how you try. When God honors you in life no one can dishonor you. The Bible says in the opening text that both riches and honor come from You, and You reign over all. In Your hand is power and might; in Your hand it is to make great and to give strength to all. Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that it is only God that can give one both honor and greatness in life. The ability and power to be great in life comes from God and He is the only One that can determine man’s greatness and downfall. I pray that God will honor you today by making you great in life forever in Jesus Christ Name! Amen.

God’s honor can make you to be great eternally. We can see this in the life of King David. In fact, a poor wretched shepherd boy that later became the king of Israel in life. He is rated the greatest king Israel ever had in life. That is why the Bible says in Psalm 75:6-7, “For exaltation comes neither from the east nor from the west nor from the south. But God is the Judge; He puts down one, and exalts another.” Therefore, the power for one’s exaltation is solely in the Hand of God Almighty in life. Every Christian should indeed take note of the fact that greatness in one’s life can never come from rituals and human sacrifices but from God alone in life forever.

When God decides to honor you with greatness, you experience peace and joy in the Holy Ghost in life. That is the reason why the Bible says in Psalm 71:21, “You shall increase my greatness, and comfort me on every side.” In fact whenever God honors a Christian, He as well comforts him on every side of life. The greatness from God gives eternal comfort and joy in life. But the greatness from Satan leads to everlasting shame and reproach. God honors those who learn to humble themselves before Him (1 Peter 5:6). Indeed, humility in the mighty Hand of God paves ways for one’s greatness in life forever.

Daily Tip: Every Christian should desire sincerely the honor and greatness that come from God in life forever. Shalom!

Golden Text: Length of days is in her right hand, in her left hand riches and honor (Proverbs 3:16).
