Give unto the LORD the glory due unto his name; worship [serve] the LORD in the beauty of holiness.
it is written, “The Lord your God shall you be worshipping [serving], and to Him only shall you be offering divine service.”
Matthew 4:10; Luke 4:8; Deuteronomy 6:13
Jesus says, “How can you believe when you receive glory from one another, and you do not seek the glory that is from the one and only God?”
And great fear came upon the whole ekklesia/edah, and upon all who heard of these things.
He is also head of the body, the church; and He is the beginning, the first-born from the dead; so that He Himself might come to have first place in everything. For it was the Father's good pleasure for all the fullness to dwell in Him.
We have as our ambition, whether at home or absent, to be pleasing to Him.
I Corinthians 5:9
Beloved, if our heart should not be condemning us, we have boldness/confidence before God, and whatever we may be asking, we are obtaining from Him, for we are keeping His commandments and doing the things that are pleasing in His sight.
I John 3:21-22
Therefore, since we receive a kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us show grace, by which we may offer to God divine/acceptable service with piety/reverence and awe; for our God is a consuming fire.

Father, I won't be ashamed to testify about the One You have appointed as Lord of All, but will join in suffering for His gospel by the power You have placed in Him, in Jesus who saves us and called us to a holy life because of his own purpose and grace, grace given us in Christ Jesus.
The privilege of knowing You! The great freedom in surrender to all Your desire.
Praying to a God that I don't believe in. Something has changed.
At the beginning of 2018, I wrote a journal entry in which I told God to take anything out of me that didn't belong. Don't pray that unless you mean it, because He will. And it will hurt but it is so much more than worth it and you will grow so much.

Praying God's words back to Him; speaking with Him, is a powerful weapon against the forces of uselessness. It also reminds us that the One God knows the way of justice and understands all we face today.

Lord, You will establish peace for us, for You have also done all our works in us (Isaiah 26:12)
Thank You, Almighty One. My God Is our economy! You, our Lord, who owns the "cattle on a thousand hills". You, Father, who calls all the gold and silver your own. To You our Provider, who stores up the wealth of the wicked to give to the righteous, Your Saints; we, the Body. "I Am", who delights in Your servants. To Jehovah, who makes the nations of the world His footstool, and prepares a table in the presence of our enemies. Holy One, who meets all our needs in Christ Jesus. The Alpha, who sees to it that we lack no good thing.
Oh Holy Father, All glory is to You. Let my choices be Your choices; make me to walk with You, guide me, fill me with Your love.
