Verse of the Day

Yours, O Lord, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the majesty and the splendor, for everything in heaven and earth is yours. Yours, O Lord, is the kingdom; you are exalted as head over all. —1 Chronicles 29:11

Thoughts on Today’s Verse…

Praise is the direct address of God that lets him know we recognize him for who he is, what he has done, and what he is doing. But more than informing God of his greatness, praise is rejoicing before him in his greatness and recognizing that not only is his grace without comparison, his majesty and might and holiness and faithfulness and righteousness and mercy and love and forgiveness and justice and… without comparison. God is God and praise is thankful celebration that he is God, and even more importantly, that he is our God.


My Prayer…

Great and Gracious God without compare, you are truly worthy of my best words and best thoughts and best imaginings. I not only worship and submit to you, but I rejoice that you are who you are, I celebrate what you have done, and I long for what you are yet to do. You are magnificent, my Father and my God. Through Jesus, and because of his matchless love, I praise you. Amen.

  1. Such a worshipful prayer from David! He is towards the end of his life and he is extolling the awesomeness of God.
    The aspect I love most about this verse is that King David, who had much wealth, power, and prestige through his life, still takes a humble place before God! There is no arrogance or pride found in him here, he is claiming the total authority of Father God over all that exists….including himself.

    Do you take this attitude of heart before God, do I? We may say in theory that yes we do, but do our lives show it out? When others see our actions and mind-sets do they see a surrendered life to God? Or do they see a prideful, “my way or the highway” attitude in us? Oh, that we would purpose in our hearts every single day to live a life in obedience to God, submitting to His total authority in every part of our daily walk. When we purpose to obey Him in all we say and do, we are admitting Him, ourselves, and others that He is the final Authority in our life. We are saying with our actions that He is worthy of our total trust.

    David knew the importance of living for God, he had lived in disobedience and paid dearly for it at times in his life. But he ended well. When he died he could enter heaven and face God with a clean heart because of his faith in his Creator. Yes, he had messed up many times, but he had confessed those times to God in repentance and his relationship with Him was sweet!

    We can do the very same today. God has always cared about our hearts, he wants our hearts to be completely His, hearts that seek to do His will and that give Him first place in our lives (Romans 12:1), hearts that love Him. After all, He deserves our devotion for He created us to love and worship Him in spirit and in truth!

    Thank You Father God for all Your great mercy, grace, and love for me. Thank You for sending Jesus to die for my sins so that I can spend eternity with You in heaven when I leave this earth. I love You so Abba Father and give You all the praise, honor, and glory that You so richly deserve this day, Amen!
