Directed Toward You – Rhapsody Of Realities TeeVo Devotional March 2nd

(His Power And Greatness Are For Your Advantage)

TO THE BIBLE: Hebrews 13:15
“Therefore by Him let us continually offer the sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of our lips, giving thanks to His name.”

Check this out: Today’s opening verse of scripture refers to the Lord, Jesus Christ. By Him, we’re to continually offer spiritual sacrifices to God in praise.

Praise is thanksgiving: thanking and extolling God’s majesty and greatness, acknowledging Him in His acts of kindness for which you’re grateful and thankful.

But here’s the really cool part: in praising Him and acknowledging His greatness, we’re thankful that His greatness is directed towards us for our advantage, in loving us, taking care of us, blessing us, and all the numerous things He’s done for us.

The prayer of God’s Spirit through Paul the apostle in Ephesians 1:19 further explains it. It says, “And what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power.”

For example, when God demonstrated that great power in raising Jesus from the dead, He raised us up together with Him. Hallelujah!

Everything He’s revealed to us about His power and His greatness is all about blessing us. He created all things: the stars, the moons, the sun, all the planets, the things we know and don’t know, and the ones we see and don’t see; they’re all for us.

No wonder the Bible says in 1 Timothy 6:17 that He gives us all things richly to enjoy. He shared all of what He’s got with us! 2 Peter 1:3 says, “According as his divine power hath given unto us all things….” Think about that! Then He said in 1 Corinthians 3:21, “…All things are yours.” Praise God!

To you, Lord, be all glory, honour, majesty, dominion, and praise, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
