Give God All The Glory

Key Verse

“Thus saith the LORD, Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, neither let the mighty man glory in his might, let not the rich man glory in his riches:” Jeremiah 9:23

Text — Jeremiah 9:23,24


There is nothing that a person has that is not from God. Wisdom, abilities, talents, success and achievements in life are all received from God and not by man’s own power. There is a great danger in boasting about one’s achievement. When you do that, you are simply claiming the glory that belongs to God. Taking glory for one’s success is pride and Satan is the father of proud people.

Do you have talents, abilities or you are blessed with wisdom that is making you to excel in your studies? Please, do not boast, because doing such does not only make God unhappy, but also attracts His anger and punishment. The grace and mercies of God only abound toward the people that are not proud but humble as the Bible puts it in James 4:6 But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble.

No matter what you have or have acquired, you must learn to recognize the gracious Giver and give Him all the glory. You must honour and lift up His name in everything you do so that you can enjoy more of His blessings.
