Exalt and Praise
I will exalt and praise your name Lord, for you are my God!
Lord, you are my God; I will exalt you and praise your name, for in perfect faithfulness you have done wonderful things, things planned long ago.
Greetings in the precious and matchless name of our Lord Jesus Christ!
Honor and glory be to the almighty God! Above all exalt and praise the omnipotent, omniscient and the omnipresent God. For He is worthy and commands by virtue of His omnipotence. Who are we to even relate to? He is the Creator and we are His creation. He knows more about us than we ever know about ourselves. Therefore, bless His mighty Name continually in all things and at all times.
In the first place, look at all the good and wonderful things that we received and posses. Are they the things that we earned or received by our own strength or ability or talent? Surely, it could never be by our own merit or expertise. Definitely, it is foolishness to brag about ourselves or our talents rather than glorifying God who blessed all of those. Certainly the Scriptures tells us that only fools rely on their own strength whereas the wise completely put their trust in the almighty God. The Bible says in Proverbs 28:26:
Those who trust in themselves are fools, but those who walk in wisdom are kept safe.
Absolutely all the talents that we posses are God given. The blessings of the Lord enables us to excel in all things or works. Most importantly, we will be always successful as long as the hand of the God rests over us. God planned our success even before our conception. As the verse says very truly He planned all those things long ago. Remember that all good things in our lives are from above. As the Scripture says in James 1:17:
Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.
Finally brethren, never cease exalting and praising God for all the wonderful things. Give all the glory to the living God in Jesus matchless and mighty name. Amen.
