To Whom Credit Is Due

Share With Friends

Ascribe to the LORD, O mighty ones, ascribe to the LORD glory and strength. Ascribe to the LORD the glory due his name; worship the LORD in the splendor of his holiness. PSALM 29:1-2
What do we give God credit for?
Typically it is for supernatural activities in our lives that we cannot explain or those things that look like coincidences. We meet someone at just the right place and time. We receive a word of encouragement, a check in the mail, or a call from a friend just when we need it. We dodge a disaster, survive a close scrape, or live through a serious illness. All of these would make our list of things for which we give God credit.
But is this all He does?
Consider the sun and the moon and the stars. The seasons, the oceans, the birds in the air. Dew in the morning and sea foam lapping at our feet. The smell of cut grass and the feel of a kitten’s fur. The Grand Canyon, a rose, rain, sleet, and snow. The autumn leaves and the taste of an apple. All of these simple pleasures in life are so amazing, and He designed them for us.
But is that all He has done?
What about love and laughter, faithfulness, holiness, peace, patience, and joy? Consider the way He faithfully provides for us. His protection and deliverance. His salvation and holiness and glory and strength and honor. God does it all because He is, and He is all that He does. There is no falseness within Him. His character and His actions are one and the same.
In our worship and praise, let’s remember not only the huge things that He has done, but also the small things He has done and the awesome way that He is.
