This Is Thy Praise

Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created. (Rev. 4:11 KJV)
Worth is the measure or weight assigned for the valuation or rating of something or someone; the total sum of its intrinsic and extrinsic value. Worth is the consideration applicable to the estimated weight or measure of inherent substance contained or constituted in someone or something. Worth is the measure of assigned notice, respect or admiration. Worth in effect translate to value.
Take the consideration for labor for instance, the worth of a person’s labor per hour is reflected in the assigned wages. Wages reflects or mirrors the worth, weight or measure of value derivable from one’s labor per hour. Everyone’s worth is reflected in the assigned consideration or wages an employer of labor is prepared to expend on an hour hire of that labor. Employers of labor will be prepared to assume different wages for the respective “worth” determined of the same labor hour.
It is not uncommon nor unusual to experience or encounter inappropriate or unequal estimation of labor worth. Some people being displeased at the uneven compensation for their skill or labor have sort new opportunities that will ascribed better worth for their labor than current employer; as the labor (owners) have determined they are worthy of higher or better remuneration. Some others (labor owners) have also experienced a down ward scaling of a asking labor worth or wages just because the employer has a diminuend estimation of the offered labor. It is imperative therefore to note the crucial importance of assigning accurate worth to derive and retain good value.
The Bibles says something very profound about the worth and wages; ““You shall not muzzle the ox while it is treading out the grain [to keep it from eating],” and, “The worker is worthy of his wages [he deserves fair compensation].” (1 Tim. 5:18 AMP).
Notice “The worker is worthy of his wages” meaning the worth of the worker must not be denied the worker because he (worker) is worthy or deserving, entitled or eligible to be paid. The Bible also states, “Now to a laborer, his wages are not credited as a favor or a gift, but as an obligation [something owed to him].” (Romans 4:4 AMP) The compensation alluded to the laborer is an obligation for the worth or value derived from his labor and so it is owed to him and not a gift.
The concept of worthy, worth and wages well illustrate what each person is deserving (worthy) because of their inherent value (worth) represented by the compensation (wages) so extended or paid.
Beloved, our admiration, adoration and adulation of God should never be considered as a favor or gift so extended to him but as an obligation [something owed to him] for the immense and immeasurable value we each derive from Him. The Bible says He is Worthy, Deserving, Entitled, Justified, Eligible, etc. to receive glory and honor and power. How often do we pay or give God His due compensation for the value we (each) draw and derive from Him?
This is thy Praise is ascribing God His worth…He is worthy. Let us Praise Him Loud.
Praise the Lord!!!

The Blessed Man

And God said unto Balaam, thou shalt not go with them; thou shalt not curse the people: for they are blessed. (Numbers 22:12 KJV)
Blessing is the benediction of God. A proof of His sanction and approval to have good accompany the object of His fondness and delight. God blesses everything He approves and His Blessing invokes good naturally and perpetually. The Blessings of God is the natural cure against every misfortune or curse. We must note this truth. When God created the Heavens and the Earth, God would not conclude His work on each day except He sees good in it. So oft and quite repeatedly through Gen. 1, the Bible would say, “God saw…, that it was good”; the good so observed is the direct result of God’s handy work or blessing that caused the good to emerge. Blessings of God make good to happen. Prov. 10:22 puts it thus; “The blessing of the Lord, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it. “ We must note, pursue and value the good derivable by the Blessings of God. It makes good of life possible.
The converse of Blessings are curses; and curses make bad things happen. We must be intolerant of curses. We must avoid, prevent and deter it by every means. Curses make life hard and difficult. It prevents Good and brings misfortunate. Curses make one fail where others succeed. It defers and interrupts the flow or occasion of good and fortune. It makes life difficult and stressful. May the Good God disallow curses in our lives in Jesus Name.
Gaining the truth about the knowledge of Blessings and curses will aid one’s understanding of why anyone would curse an enemy, for instance. An enemy would always want misfortune to happen. This was the backdrop to the occasion against Israel when Balak, the king of Moab sought the help of Balaam to curse the people of God (Numbers 22-24). Yes; the enemy of Israel was seeking that misfortune will attend to Israel. But Beloved, please note; the Blessings of God is the potent cure and prevention against any curse. The is truth and the whole truth.
Understanding of the potent effect of God’s blessing must motivate and endear every heart to seek and retain God’s Blessing as a preemptive caution and prevention against the serial wickedness of the enemy to interrupt the flow and occasion of Good in one’s life. This is crucial to a sustainable happy life.
The Blessings of God flow by the delight and pleasure of God. Caleb one of the twelve sent to spy the promised Land while Israel was on their journey said to his kinsfolks, “If the Lord delight in us, then he will bring us into this land, and give it us; a land which floweth with milk and honey. Only rebel not ye against the Lord, neither fear ye the people of the land; for they are bread for us: their defence is departed from them, and the Lord is with us: fear them not.” (Numbers 14:8-9 KJV).
The promised land was God’s Promised Blessing to Abraham and his descendants but the delight of God in them would deliver the good and fortune of that Blessing. The Bible further puts it thus; When a man’s ways please the Lord, he maketh even his enemies to be at peace with him. (Prov. 16:7 KJV).
Beloved, the Lord Himself immerses and furnishes our lives with Blessings about which the enemy will only gnash his teeth when God delights in us. Let us make pleasing God a priority and purpose of our lives and good will be the natural trend of every life’s event or venture. GOD BLESS YOU!
