Thoughts from the Past - Not unto Us, O Lord...but unto Thy Name Give Glory


This is a study that I wrote and published both on the Home Maker’s Corner and here in 2010, but I wanted to post the link here again.  This brief study of Psalm 104 deals with some thoughts on praise and worship and how we think of who God is.  I encourage you to take the challenge to think outside the usual boxes in those areas, boxes where it’s very easy for us to get stuck.

Psalms 115:1  Not unto us, O LORD, not unto us, but unto thy name give glory, for thy mercy, and for thy truth's sake.

Here’s an excerpt:

“Now, we are needy people, as my Grandpa Van Nattan often said.  We need a lot of help and wisdom and forgiveness and rescuing by God on a daily basis.  So, it isn’t surprising that we would tend to focus on what He has done for us personally.  And, there is a place for that.  But, my challenge to us is this: that we make an effort and a point of stopping and thinking about who and what God is Himself – of all the many things He does that are not related to us directly and don’t reflect on our personal needs.  More than that, I suggest that we worship and bless and praise Him for those things, yea even speak of them out loud.”
