God Is Worthy Of Our Praises; Say Thanks To Him!

Passage: 1 Chronicles 17

Every wise father wants his children to learn how to be thankful for all the gifts he has given them. This is the same as our God. As followers of Christ, we are not just called to be thankful for the good things God has sent our way, but also for what He’s going to do and for who He is. King David recognized this in his life and became thankful. The scriptures reported,

“Then King David went in and sat before the Lord, and he said: “Who am I, Lord God, and what is my family, that you have brought me this far? And as if this were not enough in your sight, my God, you have spoken about the future of the house of your servant. You, Lord God, have looked at me as though I were the most exalted of men” (1 Chronicles 17:16-17).

God Blesses His Children Who Thank Him

As Christians, we ought to thank God for His benefits in our lives. We should consider God’s blessings as a privilege, and not as our right. On many occasions, our imperfections disqualify us from receiving blessings, but God still keeps to his word and blesses us anyway! Therefore, we ought to be thankful for every bit of blessing that we receive, irrespective of its magnitude. We must remain thankful to God who has blessed us liberally without any reservation. No doubt, Jehovah will definitely bless grateful and humble people. He will bless those who are truly grateful for his benefits in their lives.

One of the factors that put God above any man-made deity is that He doesn’t require anything from you. He always fulfills his promises and asks nothing in return, except we say “thanks!” Thank God to get blessed more!🎻👏👍

Proclaim your Thanks To God

Dear God, how wonderful of a Father you are! You love me deeply, and you have shown me your loving-kindness. The list of your goodness in my life is endless! You forgave my sins and made me your son/daughter. You feed me when I was hungry; you healed me when I was sick, and you lifted me up when I was down! How can

GOD DOES NOT REWARD FALSE CHARITY – Matthew

Honest Charity Deserves Good Reward

It is good to be good! When we act in good faith, people are blessed, and God is glorified.

No doubt that God sees our charity efforts. He is surely keeping the record, and he will reward them in due time.

God and his angels rejoice when someone goes out of his way to bless his fellow human being, but not only are heavenly hosts celebrating the good deed, but God keeps the record; he will hands down his good reward for the effort.

Since an act of charity is honorable in the sight of the Lord, Christians are encouraged to engage in it.

Charity Worker, Check Your Motive

Not all charity works are visible to others, but some can’t really be kept secret from the public eyes. In such a situation, people may acknowledge and shower praises on the worker. However, the charity worker must take caution and not get carried away with the praises he receives.

A person who does a thing to receive human praise has gotten all he deserves. He may not necessarily receive God’s reward afterward since he’s all out seeking human’s approval and praises.

As children of God, our efforts must not focus on receiving human’s praises but must focus on glorifying God.

When selfishness is not the driving motive, the result of our efforts will be so praise-worthy in the presence of God.

Meanwhile, besides any human’s praises and acknowledgment, God knows how best to reward our righteous services that focus on helping humanity and glorifying the name of God.

God will reciprocate our true efforts with riches and glory in his kingdom. He will also bless us on earth.

“Therefore, when you do a charitable deed, do not sound a trumpet before you as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory from men. Assuredly, I say to you; they have their reward. But when you do a charitable deed, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, that your charitable deed may be in secret; and your Father who sees in secret will Himself reward you openly. (Matthew 6:2-4).

God’s Reward Awaits Your True Services

God is an honest deity; he also respects people who share the same attribute. True worshipers score a high mark with God, but people’s pleasers won’t go far!

As a child of God, you should evaluate your motive in any matter.

Ask yourself, “Why am I doing what I’m doing: Am I doing it to receive human’s praises, or I’m doing it to receive God’s praises?”

Self-seeking praise may go well with humans, but it doesn’t go well with God. Let your efforts be motivated by love; let your action glorify God! 

Allow God to Guide Your Actions Human flesh is in enmity with God – Flesh will encourage you to go in the way of human satisfaction, which means you will have to seek human praises to meet the demand. The flesh will motivate you to parade your charity, but the Holy Spirit of God can help you overcome that challenge. Those who are led by the Spirit are the children of God! Ask God to give you the strength and power not to be selfish nor seek
