I love this year’s prayer and fasting theme “HONOR GOD”. As a Victory Member this is something I’m familiar with as we are and will always be here to ” Honor God and Make Disciples”. bu this week these 2 words would be truly dissected, narrated and meditated on. I know that this is something fresh and new that needs to be reinjected in my veins, it cannot be a byword, a mission statement posted on a wall or printed on a sticker, its something we need to live out. It has to be something going to my bloodstream, passing to all my system breathing life a fresh into my body, soul and spirit.
Lord in this battle field of honouring you I am honestly left clueless. How easy it is to honor our friends, family and leaders as personally we have a ready set of filter and measurements of love, commitment and sacrifice. In my eyes I can easily weigh and measure somebody’s contribution in my life (which I’m sure as its best is even faulty), but how do you give weight to the one that sets the standard of weight? You are only reason such law and standard exist. The only One behind we can now understand the very concept of the word “Honor”. You have defined everything that is honourable and not, You have given me measures that I have often fallen short of and if not by your grace and mercy I know I will not stand, So today, with my feeble hands, meagre words and limited vocabulary, I will honor you with the simplicity of what human minds can conjure up-rustic words and raw heart:
I honour you Lord for the very life and existence of everything I know of to be beautiful and true-everything that this world contains and the very depths of all your creation.
I honor you Jesus for being my constant Saviour and Redeemer inspire of who I am right now and who I constantly choose to be.
I honour you Holy Spirit for bearing with the frailty of all the saints here on earth, for choosing to dwell on filthy rags as we,
I honour you Lord for choosing to love me, and teach me, bearing that everyday cross of knowing what Im made of-flaws and all and embracing all parts of me.
I honour you Lord for choosing me to be a vessel of your calling no matter how small ang insignificant we all are.
I honor you Lord for the minutest details of my life, the nanoseconds of orchestrating every atoms on earth to make sure we breathe and live a full life.
This should be an infinite loop of immeasurable things that needs to be defined to honor God, but for now this will suffice as we all should all be living, breathing God honouring disciples of Christ.
Happy Hunger Days to my fellow churchmates! This is bound to be an exciting 5days of seeking God and being hungry for more of Him in our lives. Cheers to a great start!
