“Call upon Me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you shall glorify Me.” Psalm 50:15, NKJV
Who gets your praise when you get a reprieve from the madness all around? Who receives your honor when troubles dissipate and deliverance has been brought forth?
Have you attributed your successes to your own wisdom? Has your ingenuity received the credit for plans coming to pass? Have you praised yourself, thinking, “Look what I have done?”
Who have you been glorifying? Don’t pat yourself on the back for a job well done when you know if it had not been for the Lord on your side, you would not have what you have, do what you do, and be in the position you are in.
God is not only our Heavenly Father, He is also our mighty defender and our deliverer. He invites us to seek Him in times of trouble (Psalm 46:1), and He will be our present help. When we come to Him, and call upon Him, and He delivers us, please do not give His glory to another, or take it for yourself.
Recognize what God has done in your life and honor Him alone.
“If it had not been the Lord who was on our side, now may Israel say;
If it had not been the Lord who was on our side, when men rose up against us:
Then they had swallowed us up quick, when their wrath was kindled against us:
Then the waters had overwhelmed us, the stream had gone over our soul:
Then the proud waters had gone over our soul.
Blessed be the Lord, who hath not given us as a prey to their teeth.
Our soul is escaped as a bird out of the snare of the fowlers: the snare is broken, and we are escaped.
Our help is in the name of the Lord, who made heaven and earth.” Psalm 124:1-8
