Hi guys! I was watching a movie the other day and one thing struck me. (By the way the movie is Catching Faith, you really should watch it!)
It’s really easy to get lost in the praises of men especially if you feel you deserve the new level you’ve acquired but one thing we need to constantly remind ourselves about is to give God His glory.
A lot of us have mistaken giving God glory for a ‘mouth’ thing rather than a ‘heart’ thing. Your lips may be saying ‘We thank God’ but is your heart in agreement?
Another thing is the how. We live in a ‘the end justifies the means’ generation but are children of a God of integrity – meaning doing right in season and out of season. 2 Samuel 12:7a ‘…You’re the man!’ but God wasn’t pleased with David. The world may sound like they are hailing you but God is not pleased with you and vice versa. Always remember God over everything else!
So celebrate achievements, celebrate achievers and the next time someone tells you ‘You’re the man!’, take a deep breath and think, would God have something good to say about me? Would He really be proud of me?
Until next time, me love ya,
