Evidence for God

The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.  Psalm 19:1 KJV

As the heavens declare the glory of God, so should believers. Our lives should give evidence that reveals the reality of an intelligent, planning, controlling, and presiding Creator and Savior. We all have moments when we do this, but the challenge is doing it consistently.

When I was young, I thought glorifying God meant being perfect all the time. Every wrong thought, word, or action convinced me I had no business trying to know God. Thankfully, God gave me both time and wisdom to learn the truth that He loves me—all of me, the good me, the bad me, and even the ugly me.

God’s loving nature doesn’t mean He excuses or overlooks sin in my life. He simply forgives me through the shed blood of Jesus Christ of all my sin. I am forever in His loving arms, and I have the privilege and ability to reveal His controlling presence in my life. When I fail to declare His glory, He lovingly points that out and corrects me. Even His correction declares His glory.

Letting God's Word impact our lives daily helps us declare His glory. Through His Word, He teaches, corrects, and equips us to impact the lives of those around us. He can and will bring glory to His name by our testimony as we give Him the credit for our accomplishments and discuss openly how He has worked even through our shortcomings and weaknesses.

Pray that your life will be a constant and abiding declaration of God’s glory.
