An Example to Many!
My life is an example to many, because You have been my strength and protection. That is why I can never stop praising You; I declare Your glory all day long.
I will tell everyone about Your righteousness. All day long I will proclaim Your saving power, though I am not skilled with words. I will praise Your mighty deeds, O Sovereign Lord, I will tell everyone that You alone are just.--------Psalm 71:7,8,15,16
If you are a TRUE Child of the Living God, then you SHOULD be touting His STRENGTH and PROTECTION, His GOODNESS and UNFAILING love for ALL of His creation. The Psalmist says: “I can NEVER stop praising You; I declare Your glory ALL day long.” Is that your proclamation? Is that what is in your HEART and provokes you to ACTION?
We seem to be able to brag on the deeds of our children, grandchildren or spouses and even on our own accomplishments. But the question is; how much do we boast on what our Heavenly Father has done and is STILL doing in our lives? The One who created us and has offered His ONE and ONLY Son as a SACRIFICE for OUR sins, so that we might be able to spend ALL ETERNITY in Heaven, with Him. This life is temporary and EVERYTHING in this life is temporary. One day we will leave this earth, either through death or the rapture and we will LEAVE EVERYTHING here. If we are a TRUE Child of the Living God, we will go to our rewards in Heaven and spend ALL ETERNITY there. That my dear brothers and sisters is something to boast about. We, as the Psalmist proclaims, need to NEVER STOP praising Him and to declare His glory ALL DAY LONG.
The Psalmist goes on to say: “I will tell EVERYONE about Your righteousness.” I had a doctor’s appointment yesterday, and after the exam, the doctor, who is a strong Christian, began to boast on God and His STRENGTH, PROTECTION, and His UNFAILING LOVE, quoting Scriptures and PRAISING God. I can’t begin to tell you what a BLESSING it was to be able to have the assurance that my doctor is such a STRONG WITNESS for the ONE who gives him the WISDOM and KNOWEDGE to be able to minister to people and to be an EXAMPLE to them.
And that is EXACTLY what we, as God’s Children should be doing. We need to be the SALT and Light to a lost and dying world. We need to live our life as an EXAMPLE to MANY. We need to PRAISE and PROCLAIM God’s UNFAILING love, STRENGTH, PROTECTION and MERCY and GRACE from the rooftops. We NEED to let our light shine before men that they might see our good works and GLORIFY GOD.
If you have not given your HEART and LIFE to God, then you are not a TRUE Child of the Living God and you are not experiencing His UNFAILING LOVE, STRENGTH, and PROTECTION. But you can experience His MERCY and GRACE, because of His UNFAILING LOVE by: CONFESSING your sins to God and asking Him for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING with ALL your HEART that Jesus died for YOU and is ALIVE, in Heaven making intercession for you, before God, then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and experience His STRENGTH and PROTECTION, then tell EVERYONE what God has done for YOU! Do it NOW, while you STILL can. He’s waiting!!!
