For thine is the kingdom


“Thine, O Jehovah, is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty: for all that is in the heavens and in the earth is thine; thine is the kingdom, O Jehovah, and thou art exalted as head above all.” 1 Chronicles 29:11 ASV

When I read these words, it almost seems as though they could be The Lord’s Prayer for the Old Testament.

In reading Matthew Henry’s Commentary, he points out that at the time when David said these words, he was an old man, contemplating life on the other side. In fact, Henry says when we get closer to our heavenly existence, it is good to begin speaking the language of heaven and leave the language of earth behind. And what is the language of heaven? Praise!

Prayer: Father, may your praise be continually on my lips from this day forward, and may I never forget that all of my blessings come from you.
