What can I give the Lord
No man can out give the Lord.
What can I give the Lord for all that he has done for me?
Dear brothers and sisters in Christ, warm wishes and hearty greetings in the precious name of our Lord Jesus!
The subject verse (Psalms 116:12) is one thing that no man can ever do or achieve. It is something that we could ponder upon but never be successful. Certainly, we could never repay the goodness that the Lord has blessed us. Surely, no man can ever out give the Lord. It is only foolishness to think, that by giving something to God we can satisfy him. Nothing in this world can match what God does for his children. Moreover our abilities or talents are worthless before the grace and mercy of God. Then what is that God wants from us? How can we make Him happy?
Loving the Lord our God, Jesus Christ and doing the will of the Heavenly Father are certainly what we need to do. Although we can never do anything by our own, but Lord the Holy Spirit whom Jesus sent from the Father guides us to do what we need to do. The Holy Spirit in us helps us to grow in our relationship with God. Our faith in the living God and the desire to live a holy life gets strengthened when we heed to the voice of the Holy Spirit. The Bible says that the Holy Spirit shall teach us at the right hour what we ought to say. Therefore we need to build ourselves according to the wishes of the Spirit, not of the body.
For the Holy Spirit will teach you in that very hour what you ought to say.Luke 12:12 NKJV
Finally brethren, we can never out give the Lord. We could only give Him ourselves. In Jesus’ matchless name let us submit fully to the Living God. Amen.
