Oh wow, did I miss out for a while or what. I think this happens to a lot of Christians really. Why is it that we get so caught up in the question, “How can I give God glory?” While meant with the best intentions it really translates, “What can I do?”
Something that just clicked today as I read my devotional was that simply delighting in God is what gives Him glory. Simply enjoying His presence. I say this because when I am delighting in God, I am at my best.
When I am delighting in God, I am able to better love people and most importantly give myself more fully to Him.
When I am focused on working to give Him glory, this is where I fall short. Not fall short of being good enough for Him by any means, but where I lose sight of who I am and my joy in Him. This is when I turn glorifying God into a chore when it was designed to be something we, as His creations naturally do.
Just a thought.
