“Ascribe to the Lord the glory due His name; worship the Lord in the splendor of His holiness.” (Psalm 29:2)
Recently someone gave me credit for something great that was developed for our church. The bummer was that no credit was due to me. The person was a mistaken. I had nothing to do with what was created. I had privlige to be part of a chat and then someone else did the work. Kudos were thrown my way, but they were ascribed in the wrong direction.
Ascribing means “to attribute” or “to give credit.” The proper way we worship the Lord is to attribute to Him the glory that He deserves. Worship is our response to the greatness of God. This is not something that we should limit to a dynamic of singing songs. Worship is both action and attitude as we are to attribute glory to God for who He is and what He has done.
When we worship and ascribe glory to God we are not providing something He is lacking. When we worship this way we give Him what He alone deserves. We don’t add to His glory, but we reflect back to Him the glory that He always has. Let’s choose to worship Him for what He deserves.
Question: Is there a pattern of worship in your life because you ascribe glory to the Lord?
Challenge: Look for ways today to give God credit for who He is and what He is doing in your midst.
Prayer: Lord, help my worship of You flow as I have my eyes wide open to continually give You the glory You deserve.
