For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be glory forever. Amen. Romans 11:36
All things originate from God and for God’s glory.
We often live life with the idea that all things originate from our self efforts and achievements. Living life in this way will lead to a false sense of self-sufficiency and self centeredness grounded only in our own efforts. This short passage reminds us that all things are given “by him, through him and for him”.
When we live life with the understanding that all blessings come “from God, through Him and for Him” we find a balance in life. We no longer live with a self-sufficient attitude but we live life with a humble and grateful attitude because we know God is the source of all our blessings. We also see that the achievements we experience in life are to reflect the Glory of God and reveal the wonderful work He is accomplishing through us.
Lord, may we live life with humility and gratitude as we receive the wonderful blessings you are giving and we are returning to you in praise.
