I was digging into the word "WORTHY" this morning. The english definition says it means 'deserving of my effort, my attention, and my respect.'
God deserving these things has absolutely nothing to do with my effort or my attention. He is worthy regardless of what do, however, because He is worthy and I love Him, I want my life's actions to speak to the fact that He is worthy.
I feel like that all sounds good, but, I ask myself, how does that fit for me practically today? I believe it means focusing on what Col 3 says to do: "Set my mind on things above."
In other words:
*not getting mentally caught up in things I don't know are true or are apart from godly thoughts.
*asking God all day what He wants me to do for the next hour
*reminding myself all day that He is worthy of my attention, my sacrifice and my respect- it's not all about me
*praising Him for His character and constantly looking for things to be grateful and thankful to Him for in my life.
I am thankful we serve a God who is worthy. He is alive and one day we will stand before Him and sing with the angels “Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power and riches and wisdom and might and honor and glory and blessing. To Him who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb, be blessing and honor and glory and dominion forever and ever.” I can't wait for that day!!
