Every Tongue Confess


“that every knee should bow
In heaven and on earth and under the earth,
And every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord/ to the glory of God the Father.”
Philippians 2:10-11 (NIV)

               Can you imagine the scene? We will see all mankind bowing down, as a form of worship and respect, before God, our heavenly Father. For as far as we can see; people will pay homage to their Creator. Suddenly, we hear a groundswell of voices, speaking in unison. “Hallelujah, all praise belongs to You, El Shaddai.”

               I have heard it said that we Christians get more excited over a game of football, baseball, or basketball than we do over Jesus. But, when this event comes, all people of the world will praise God.   

               In order to be able to praise Him then, we need to look for small things, already given to us, to thank God for. During 2013 I started writing down things to praise Him for. I got started in May. I managed to record 1,000gifts from God. In 2014, I started on New Year’s Day. As of December 30th, I recorded 1034 special gifts for which I praise God. I am truly blessed. If I were to print them out I would have 38.4 pages of “Thank You” statements to God. This is a good exercise for me. I sometimes forget that God is with me all the time.

               My plan for this year, 2015, is to write those gifts in longhand in a daily planning journal.

  1. It is hard to imagine this scene. It will be a good one, I am sure! I think your idea for a journal is good. I may borrow the idea. :)

  2. Great idea...about keeping the daily journal of gifts/blessings. I need to do the same. It will be a wonderful testimony to look back upon at the end of the year and see how God took care of us so abundantly throughout the year...and how we learned to give thanks in all things. Wonderful plan. Thank you for sharing that with us. I needed that.

    1. Pam: It helps me draw closer to God. It also makes me more thankful for the small things--those things we tend to take for granted. Blessings on you and yours.

  3. It is so true that we can cheer out loud easily with the crowd when our favourite team scores a point, however we don't often shout when we see an answer to prayer, a blessing come our way, and a random act that only could have come to God. Our thank-you to God can be so quiet in our world that really needs to see His glory and grace! Time for me to get louder!
