"Yours is the greatness, the power, the glory, the victory, and the majesty. Everything in the heavens and on the earth are yours, oh Lord and this is Your kingdom. We adore you as the One who is over all things." 1 Chronicles 29:11 (NLT)
I love this verse because it really doesn't matter what is going on; God is still God. God is Creator of all things and is over all things. This verse is a part of David's prayer right after Israel had collected and donated their treasures to the building of the Temple. David was overwhelmed that he could participate in donating to the Temple as an act of worship. In this prayer, David also expresses that everything belongs to God and anything we give Him is His already.
David didn't get to achieve his dream of building the Temple; however, he did not let this embitter him. Instead, he participated in a way that he could. His humility allowed him to see that no matter what, God is still God and God knows best. David recognized that his gift was truly a humble gift because it was all God's anyway, yet he also recognized that it was such an honor to give it to God. Our humility is an act of worship and a wonderful gift we give to God. This is because when we worship Him in humility, it is a worship that recognizes who God is.
Have you worshiped God today?
