How can we honor God ?
Psalm 50:14 “Sacrifice thank-offering to God, fulfil your vows to the Most High, and call upon me in the day of trouble, I will deliver you, and you will honour me.”
This verse is a promise from the Almighty that Lord will deliver when we call upon God. Our prayers will bring honour to our heavenly Father. What a beautiful promise. Lord said all this will happen if we do two things.
At the beginning of the verse, Lord is asking us to offer thanksgiving. Those who know their Lord will always see the hand of the Lord in their lives always. Thanksgiving from a grateful heart brings the glory of God into our lives. His awesome presence dwells in the place of praise.
Confessing our sins is good, but Lord desires us to keep the decisions we take while confessing. Keep the vows, we many times took decisions like we will not sin, we will live Holy, read and study the word, will have a strong prayer life. Let us revisit our decisions, and pray fully and humbly fulfil our vows.
Remember, promise is fulfilled in our lives only by faith, but faith always results in actions (The word says, faith without action is dead.) The order is like this, believe leads to hope and hope leads to faith and faith leads to grace and grace leads to actions (obedience).
Father God, when I meditate on what you have done for me. I just have one thing to tell; out of gratitude, THANK YOU. Lord I praise you for forgiving my sins by the precious blood of Jesus, Lord fill me with the Holy Spirit that I will have the strength to keep my vows. In Jesus Name I pray. Amen.
