Thou art Worthy
Revelation 4:11 “Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power: for Thou hast created all things, and for Thy pleasure they are and were created.”
Here the creature comes into his highest place:
The most he can achieve personally….to live for the pleasure, or the determination of his Creator…..to attain to that which he was created for.
In this, we are complete….”perfect”.
Matthew 5:48 “Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.”
Colossians 1:28 “Whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom, that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus:”
God created us….set us in the circumstances of our lives….and drew us to Himself, by His Spirit….leading us to be born again,….drawing us out of our old life of habits and attitudes….into the glorious kingdom of Christ Jesus….within us.
Philippians 2:13 “For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of His good pleasure.”
We can not go beyond what we are….but we can be…….what He has made us…
….and what He has worked within us….
….using all He gives….
….and it is to that degree, we are to be complete,……and do.
It is our will, through the power of the Holy Spirit, that is the determining factor….for as we will with God….His Will is being worked….in us, by us, and through us.
Revelation 4:11 “Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power: for Thou hast created all things: and for Thy pleasure (determination) they are and were created.”
We bow to that Will, when we obey Him….
Romans 6:16 “Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whither of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?”
Simply said,….the one you obey, is your master (Matthew 6:24)
If you obey sin, then sin is your master…
….but if we obey God, it leads to righteousness.
(Righteousness is a matter of faith.
It is faith acting on the Word of the Almighty, and doing to please Him.
It is “right living”……for all true living ends in the soul’s clinging to Christ, and in every act of obedience,….placing ourselves at His disposal.)
Real worship is “worthyship”…..counting Him worthy of my all.
Knowing I exist and am able to live because of HIs mercy.
Honoring Him in prayer, praise, and obedience.
Knowing that all that comes to me,….He has seen, thought over, and allowed….
….and will give me grace for.
He is worthy…..
It was His determination for me,….for you….to be His….amazing grace!
It was His determination for me….for you….to honor Him by our lives….to be His servants, and show His righteousness through us.
This is the song that all the saints in heaven will sing:
Thou art worthy….
Are we tuning up our voices….and our lives to sing it?
