Managing Glory

Click here for the Audio Version:
Psalm 29:1-2 (KJV), “Give unto the Lord, O ye mighty, give unto the Lord glory and strength. Give unto the Lord the glory due unto his name; worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness."

Timothy's spiritual growth was really rapid that it caused many to wonder, even his parents were amazed. It did not take long before his parents realized that he was enjoying the gifts and graces they had prayed for and had expected in their ministry. Because of these gifts, he was called several names in a bid to honor God in his life, others simply did so they could win his favor. But a time came when he became so entitled and began to demand honor from men; anyone who will not honor the way he wanted could not get his attention, he eventually stopped giving the glory to God, he simply received it.

According to today's text, we are to give God the glory due to him. What does this mean?

Luke 17:10 (KJV) reads, “So likewise ye, when ye shall have done all those things which are commanded you, say, We are unprofitable servants: we have done that which was our duty to do."

Any glory emanating from the work God assigned to you or the gifts he gave you is the glory due him, whether directly from the work he gave you or from men because of the results of the work.

No man should give glory to another man and no man should receive glory from another man. Every glory coming from man must be to God, if men decide to give you glory because they are ignorant, you must refuse it and channel it to God.

It is the glory that God gives that is yours, the glory men give is not yours but God's.

“For the Lord God is a sun and shield: the Lord will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly" (Psalm 84:11 KJV).

Go into today knowing that there is glory destined for you and God himself is the one who gives this glory.

Prayer: Lord Jesus, please help me never to take the glory due you.
