Topic: ALL GLORY BELONGS TO YHWH
Acts 12:21-24 King James Version (KJV)
21 And upon a set day Herod, arrayed in royal apparel, sat upon his throne, and made an oration unto them.
22 And the people gave a shout, saying, It is the voice of a god, and not of a man.
23 And immediately the angel of the Lord smote him, because he gave not God the glory: and he was eaten of worms, and gave up the ghost.
24 But the word of God grew and multiplied.
Beloved, we serve a God who does everything for us. From our ability to breathe to our ability to walk, ability to think to our ability to execute what we think or plan are all done for us by God Almighty who is YHWH.
There is nothing we do that is by us. Beloved He who uses us and does all things for us is the one who created us and He owns us. His name is YHWH.
Beloved, every praise and glory, honour and adoration, worship and thanksgiving should go to YHWH. It should never come to us. None of it should ever come to us because whatever we might have done or received or said that calls for praise and thanksgiving and all were done by YHWH and not us. We were just earthen vessels created by Him and used by Him.
He deserves all the praise and glory, honour and adoration, worship and thanksgiving. We are mere humans who can do nothing on our own and we deserve nothing, we are unqualified to receive anything.
YHWH qualifies us and gives us what He wants to give us. He gives us what He has promised us and sometimes what we don't even know about, He gives to us.
Beloved, our salvation is YHWH. His coming to earth as Jesus Christ, dying on the cross, shedding His blood, all the declarations on and off the cross, are all YHWH's doing.
Our hearing of the Word, to believe and accept Jesus as our Lord and personal Saviour and confess Him so, to be saved are all done by YHWH. There is nothing we do that is us. It is all YHWH.
Beloved do not take His glory, give it all to Him. Let Him be YHWH and enjoy what is for YHWH. You also be man and enjoy what YHWH gives you to enjoy.
Herod decided to take His glory and he was eaten up by worms to death. I don't know how painful that would be but I can imagine how uncomfortable and how gross it will be.
Beloved don't touch His praise and glory, don't touch His honour and adoration, dont touch His worship and thanksgiving. They are His, don't be a thief wanting to steal them from Him.
Beloved, when you try to take these things from YHWH, you try to limit His work and flow here on earth; you try to stop His work from going on and anybody who tries to stop or limit the work of God from going on, dies before his time.
*IT'S ALL ABOUT JESUS* and no one else. Let Him have all that is His and you have what He gives to you and your life shall be perfect in His eyes.
Prayer: Daddy, I don't want to take or possess anything that is yours which you have not given to me. Every praise and glory, honour and adoration, worship and thanksgiving is yours. If I make any mistake to touch any of them or take anything that you have not given to me, Please have mercy on me, prompt me and cause me to release it to you or redirect it to you that your name will be forever exalted. Daddy please have mercy on me in all things. In the mighty name of Jesus I pray. Amen.
_KNOWING THE DEEP THINGS OF GOD AND FOLLOWING THEM TO RECEIVE THAT WHICH GOD HAS PLANNED FOR YOU WITHOUT HUSTLE OR FORCE IN THE NAME OF JESUS_
