”Even everyone that is called by my name: for I have created him for my glory,I have formed him yea, I have made him.”
God made you for His glory.God created you to bring glory to Him .God wants to get glory from your life.in other words,through your life,God wants to receive honour and praise.
The life of Jesus brought glory to the father because,He finished the work God called Him to do as seen in john 17:4,”I have glorified thee on the earth:I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do.”The message Bibble puts it this way,” I glorified you on earth By completing down to the last detail what you assigned me to do,” therefore,if you do the work God has called you to do,paying attention to details, you are giving Him glory with your life.This is why in my personal life,I pay attention to details and divine instruction because as I obey Him with such precision I am bringing Him glory with my life.
As a minister of the gospel,I do not carry-out the work of the ministry by my own intelligence, or the suggestion of men but by the leading of the spirit of God and obeying divine instructions. God told me when I just began the work of the ministry ;”Never measure success by outward standards but by inward fulfillment.” This means that you are not successful just because you have a crowd. If that was it then Jesus would have been a failure being that at the end of His earthly ministry when He hung on the cross all He had left was a few women and john because all the others ran away .Yet He was a success because He fulfilled His purpose which He spoke about Matthew 20:28,”Even as i the son of man came not to be ministered unto,but to minister, and give his life ransom for many.”
Hence,if you want your life to bring glory to God then living in God’s perfect will for your life should become your obsession.
Dear Father,I ask that you grant me an understanding of the times so that I may know right thing to do,when to do it and how to do it in the bringing glory and praise to you with my life ,in Jesus ‘Name .Amenv
