Breaktime: Who is Worthy
Who is worthy?
Praise be to the Lord, the God of Israel, from everlasting to everlasting. Amen and Amen. Psalm 41:13
David recognized God’s presence wasn’t going anywhere, and He was worthy of all his praise. He knew God intimately and found God to be worthy of all glory and honor. Praising God kept David humbled before God and kept David from praising his own work. David knew it was God who was sustaining and holding him.
Praise will keep us before God, as well. What in our life do we spend time praising? In other words, what in our life do we deem worthy of our time? We may not always go around praising, but what we spend our time on often indicates what we find worthy. We may discover sixty minutes on Sunday enough to fill the space of God’s worthiness. But remember, the same God who carried David through his life, is the same God with us today.
So often our ego wants to be praised and honored. It calls us many times to be noticed, and when neglected, it screams louder. What if, instead of striving for attention, we redirect the screaming ego to God’s worthiness. Soon we will find the ego becoming less of a nuisance, and we become more aware of God’s worthiness. There is a constant struggle with our ego and what it believes it deserves. God is the One who is worthy of all praise from everlasting to everlasting. Each day is a beautiful reminder of his continual worthiness, and it is time to praise the Lord.
