God is glorified when you live your life on earth with total dependence on God, His providence, His protection and His grace in every area of your life.
Our God looks at our heart's attitude towards Him and our motivation behind all that we do. He is pleased when we live with acknowledgement and adoration of His divine power and grace.
When your attitude is right, you will not take things in your own hand; you would not trust your own strength or might or brainpower; You will always remember that everything that you have is from God and that all glory should rightfully go to Him alone.
John 15:5 - I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.
God can see everything that is in our hearts. God cares about our attitude behind every action that we do. He rewards our attitude and heart motives. God is a God of Truth. He expects truth in our inward parts, not just an outward show of good works.
A thankful heart glorifies God for His providence!
A cheerful worry-free heart glorifies God by acknowledging that He is in Control for Eternity!
Did you thank God for being alive today?
Did you thank God for the good food He gave you today?
Did you thank God for the peaceful night's sleep yesterday?
Did you thank God for the job/business He has given you?
Did you thank God for your family and friends?
Have a list of Thanks Offering to God every day!
Psalms 136:1 - O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good: for his mercy endureth forever.
1 Thessalonians 5:18 - In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
Colossians 3:17 - And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.
God deserves all our praise and worship. He has done so much for us, to stop praising Him. Praise God for who He is and for all that He has done. Look at the works of His hands and stand in awe of the beauty of His creations.
A praise-filled heart acknowledges how awesome God and His handiworks are!
Did you praise God for who He is and so great a gift of Salvation today?
Psalms 118:24 - This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.
Psalms 50:23 - Whoso offereth praise glorifieth me: and to him that ordereth his conversation aright will I show the salvation of God.
Psalms 99:3 - Let them praise thy great and terrible name; for it is holy.
We always want more and more. We think that we will be content once we get that promotion or pay hike or job, but after receiving it, our expectations and goals elevate. We never feel content with what God has given at the moment. This would be displeasing our Lord. Complaining and murmuring will only delay God's blessings, our purpose, and keep us from enjoying the life that God has graciously given to us now.
1 Timothy 6:6-8 - But godliness with contentment is great gain.
Philippians 4:11- Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.
Hebrews 13:5 - Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.
We all want our own things to be done. We don't want God to dictate our life events. But, God's plans are far better than ours. God knows what is best for you and so leave it all to Him. Cast all your burdens and cares on Him. Plan, pray and surrender your plans to God. Let Him choose which plans of yours should come to pass and which should not. Let Him decide the timings for the fulfilment of His plans for your life. Surrender everything to God who knows you better than you.
James 4:7 - Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
James 4:10 - Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.
You cannot enjoy the fullest life that God has for you if you do not walk in obedience. Disobedience and sin would grieve the Holy Spirit and the accuser(the devil) will look for opportunities to accuse you and keep you from fulfilling your God-given purposes.
Romans 12:1 - I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.
Whatever you do, do it for God. Whether it is washing your dishes, taking care of your children or working in an office, you can glorify God if you do it for Him. You have to work and live for God, with a grateful God.
1 Corinthians 6:20 - For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which belongs to God.
1 Corinthians 10:31 - Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.
If you trust God for your provision, you will not withhold all your money for yourselves. You will give away a portion of the money you have for God's work. You will not go for unethical means to earn money. A generous heart glorifies God by acknowledging that it is God who gives you the ability to create wealth!
Proverbs 3:9 - Honour the LORD with thy substance, and with the firstfruits of all your increase:
1. To glorify God in all you do, you must first be a child of God and acknowledge how awesome He is.
2. How to glorify God in everyday activities? You must have a thankful heart and live in conscious connection with God, praising Him for all His deeds.
