How do you get greatness, power, honor and strength?
Where do you get greatness, power, honor and strength?
David knew the answer to this question. Look at the depth of this prayer of praise to God by King David. Try to grasp King David’s knowledge and understanding of God. The trials and tests which God allowed in David’s life brought him an understanding of God’s heart of worship and praise. David overcame the betrayal test when King Saul promised yet did not deliver the prize of wealth, no taxes, and his daughter in marriage after killing Goliath. David passed the faithfulness test when he had two chances to kill King Saul and instead honored Saul’s position as King. David passed the repentance test when he was confronted with his sin of adultery and murder and confessed his sin, repented of his sin, and was broken and contrite before HOLY GOD.
The depth of David’s knowledge and understanding of God’s heart came by being continually tested through brokenness. David had the positional power to have all Israel worship him as King. He had the positional power to walk in his own strength and might. He had wealth and power which he knew came only from God.
10 Then David praised the Lord in the presence of the whole assembly:
“O Lord, the God of our ancestor Israel, may you be praised forever and ever! 11 Yours, O Lord, is the greatness, the power, the glory, the victory, and the majesty. Everything in the heavens and on earth is yours, O Lord, and this is your kingdom. We adore you as the one who is over all things. 12 Wealth and honor come from you alone, for you rule over everything. Power and might are in your hand, and at your discretion people are made great and given strength. 1 Chronicles 29:10-12
David knew that greatness, power, glory, victory, wealth, honor and strength come from God alone who rules over ALL things. David knew everything in heaven and earth was the Lord’s. HE is the creator, redeemer and sustainer of life.
Walk today in the power, greatness, glory, honor and victory you have in Christ Jesus.
