Praise to our King

I’m in Revelation in my personal Bible time, and this portion of a verse struck me. “… Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever.” (Revelation 5:13) I remembered that section was used in Handel’s Messiah, which we just attended two weeks ago. The Christmas season is beautiful and wonderful as we ponder God’s amazing gift in sending His Son to earth.

As we enter this final stretch before Christmas, I’m motivated to find more ways to honor and glorify the name of Jesus. 

I’d love to hear something you’re praising the Lord for today. I’m grateful for the Lord’s lovingkindness! 


“Because thy lovingkindness is better than life,
my lips shall praise thee.”
Psalm 63:3

  1. That’s a wonderful portion of Scripture for meditation.

    You must have been to the Messiah there just one week before we went to it here in Palmerston North, NZ! It was the children’s first time – what a joy for us.

    Thankful for having the Word of God and the fact that His instruction is clear for us. What a gracious God to warn and instruct us so diligently and lovingly. A true Father.

  2. Morning Sarah! I’m praising the Lord this morning for His steadfast love in trials. Our family is in the midst of a very, very difficult trial. I’ve been downhearted and despairing at times, but God has faithfully renewed my spirit and strengthened me through His Word and through the love of other believers. I’m also praising Him for the hope we have in Christ…one day all things will be made new and trials and sadness will be no more! What a glorious thought!

    Merry Christmas!

    1. I just prayed for you all. What a hard season to go through right now. I know the Christmas season isn’t always easy for some — who have lost a loved one or who are enduring physical challenges. Praying for you! Hugs from Kansas!

  3. Greetings Sarah,

    I as well am nearing the end of my Bible reading. Read Revelation 7:12 this morning and I too marveled at this “Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom, Thanksgiving and honor and power and might, Be to our God forever and ever Amen.” I am praising the Lord for being my “Great Deliverer!” He saved me and adopted me as His child! Unfathomable! Blessed Monday to you! Abiding in Christ, Kim

    1. That’s amazing — you and I are so close in our reads :). I think I was in chapter 14 today. This read through took me longer than normal. Praise the Lord for His amazing blessings!

  4. Actually I am Praising Him for the influence of your family on my family over the past 8 years that He has used y’all to help us with your teaching and example.

  5. I am very thankful for all the blessings the Lord has given me, my wonderful husband and our healthy beautiful daughter, I am thankful for the trials and celebrations given to us throughout this year, and although the bumps in the road can be hard, knowing that it’s Gods perfect plan for my life gives me a peaceful feeling.

  6. I’m grateful for God turning disappointment into opportunity. I’m grateful for His consistent presence in my life inspiring me to show compassion to myself and others.

  7. That looks like fun. I love symphonies and things like that. I went to a Christmas symphony with my mom and Grampy and little sister the other day. It was really neat to hear an orchestra play Christmas songs. 🙂

  8. I’m so grateful to God everyday for the wonderful job that I have. Working as a Paraeducator with Special Education students comes with its tough days, however, it is so rewarding! I am blessed to be in surrounded by amazing students who are ever so patient and loving with my students. My students are peer motivated and all of the peers that I encounter in the classroom or recess setting encourage my students to make good choices. Some days, my students have difficulty using kind words and kind hands and the peers are amazing at showing my students what kind words sound like and what kind hands look like. It is a true blessing and honor to be able to live out my vocation in the Special Education profession!

    Have a Merry Christmas!!

  9. Hi Sarah, it’s always inspiring to see faithfulness and it takes the grace of God and dependence on God to humbly seek His word everyday.My family and I began reading each morning and it’s very,rewarding.It’s such a blessing to see the children more spiritually minded.I wanted to ask, what plan do you follow to read through the bible in a year?

    1. Hi Esther,

      Thanks for your comment! That’s wonderful you read each day! I actually don’t follow a plan on reading through the Bible. I just read for what I have time for. I generally have 30 minutes for Bible reading, but I spend about 5 journaling, so however far I get in the other time! 🙂

  10. Ah,I see. That’s great. Yes, journaling does tend to happen when one is communicating with the Lord.Thank you for writing back.
