Honor Role

"'Who am I, O Lord God, and what is my family, that you have brought me this far? And now, O God, in addition to everything else, you speak of giving your servant a lasting dynasty! You speak as though I were someone very great,O Lord God!

What more can I say to you about the way you have honored me? You know what your servant is really like. For the sake of your servant, O Lord, and according to your will, you have done all these great things and have made them known.

O Lord, there is no one like you. We have never even heard of another God like you!" 1 Chronicles 17:16-20 NLT

This was a prayer that King David said to God after the prophet Nathan reported to him the promises that God had told Nathan to share with him--and God's graciousness overwhelmed even him, a king.

At times, is that how you feel? I know I do. God's graciousness has sent me into tears. Tears of gratitude, tears of humbleness, tears of joy, of thankfulness. If we did not serve such a loving, gracious God, where would we be? We would be nothing--we would be worthless.

Do you feel that, as King David stated so elegantly those many years ago, that there is no God like our God? That just to be able to bear His name, is honor enough. Praise be to our Father in Heaven as we serve Him here on earth.
