David writes, "Not to us, O Lord, not to us, but to Your name give glory" (Ps 115:1 AMP).
The breath you took as you read that last sentence was given to you for one reason, that you might "reflect the Lord's glory" (2Co 3:18 NIV).
Before Moses was qualified to lead Israel he first had to pray, "show me your glory" (Ex 33:18 NCV).
We cross a line when we make such a request. When our deepest desire is not the things of God, or the favor of God, but God Himself, we cross a threshold. Less self-focus, more God-focus. Less about us more about Him. This calls for the death of ego. It rubs us the wrong way. It's a truth we must constantly remind ourselves of. "God made all things, and everything continues through him and for him. To him be glory forever" (Ro 11:36 NCV). And if you still haven't got the message: "There is only one God, the Father, who created everything, and we exist for him" (1Co 8:6 NLT).
Why does the earth spin? For Him.
Why do you have talents and abilities? For Him.
Whose Word matters? His.
Whose will must be done? His, not ours.
God's to-do list consists of one item: "Reveal My glory."
Heaven's framed and mounted statement of purpose reads: "Declare God's glory."
Everything and everyone exists to reveal His glory including you! Try to remember that.
