Words from the Heart for Monday March 1st, 2021
You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they were created and have their being.
Revelation 4:11 (NIV)
You Are Worthy
With the US-Canada border closed for all these months, it hasn’t been possible for Canadians who live near the border to cross over to pick up those snacks that aren’t available in Canada – like Moon Pies and interesting Oreo flavours. But according to pastemagazine.com there are a number of Canadian-worthy snacks here in Canada. They mention things like Hickory Sticks, Dare Maple Leaf cookies, Ketchup Chips, Coffee Crisp and Crispy Crunch chocolate bars, and MacIntosh’s Toffee. Great Canadian-worthy snacks!
There are lots of things in the world that we value. They can be as simple as our favourite snacks and comfort food, or as majestic as the mountains surrounding Banff or Lake Louise Alberta. Of much greater value and worth is the One who spoke those mountains into being and who reigns over all of life. The hosts of heaven understand this. In Revelation 4:11 the 24 heavenly elders proclaim: “You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they were created and have their being.” God receives glory from all that He has created. Those of us who know Him through faith in Jesus Christ recognize His creative genius in all that He has made. We also recognize that because of what He has done in us in saving and transforming us, our Creator and Redeemer deserves to receive all the honour and glory that we can offer. We need to take time every day, and throughout each day, to worship Him, and offer Him the glory He deserves. How can you offer Him the honour He deserves for what He has done in your life?
These have been words from the heart.
