Thine is the Glory

(Note: A week of posts on my personal use of the Lord's Prayer as a prayer outline concludes today.)

For Thine is the kingdom,
And Thine is the power,
And Thine is the glory,
Now and forever.
~ Matthew 6:13 (author)

Oh, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God!
How unsearchable are His judgments and His ways past finding out!
of Him and through Him and to Him are all things,
to whom be glory forever. Amen.
~ Romans 11:33,36 (NKJV, emphasis author's)

"The chief end of man is to glorify God and enjoy Him forever."
~ Westminister Shorter Catechism

For Thine is The Kingdom
We have no other Sovereign. YHWH is Creator, Owner, Ruler, Rabbi, Purchaser, King, and Lord. He has dominion over every aspect of our lives.

And Thine is The Power
All power in the heavens and the earth and under the earth is of His hand; all power touching our lives does so only through His permission; all power entrusted to us, to be exercised in thought, feeling, word and action is testimony to God's name, for reproach or for glory.

And Thine is The Glory
If we have favor in His sight, may the Lord grant to us this highest privilege, greatest pleasure, and deepest passion: that we bring glory to Him; and may He shape us as approachable, interesting, effective, and modest ambassadors, that all glory is His alone.

Now and Forever
May any glory we are empowered to bring God be manifest now and endure into an eternal kingdom.

So be it!
