Not About Me

Not About Me

I was going to write an eloquent blog tonight about how God is working in me, how He has worked around me lately, what He has done to strengthen and encourage me. I was going to write a lot of good things, but I am not tonight. These are all good things. Through our stories, we continue to share with the world who He is and what He is doing. They see tangible evidence of Christ in our lives – a marvelous thing.

But today is different. I have to be reminded of a fact periodically, because I really do start to talk just like I wrote: “working in me,” “worked around me,” or “strengthen and encourage me.” My vocabulary begins to have the word “me” quite a bit. What happens is that the story becomes about me, when all along the story is to be about Him.

God is truly amazing. He has done miraculous things in me and in many others. Scripture is full of such things. Today, though, we are going to look at one piece of Scripture. Life, my friends, is about Him – all of life. It is His story and I simply get to be a part.

The earth is the LORD’s, and everything in it,
the world, and all who live in it;
2 for he founded it on the seas
and established it on the waters.
3 Who may ascend the mountain of the LORD?
Who may stand in his holy place?
4 The one who has clean hands and a pure heart,
who does not trust in an idol
or swear by a false god.
5 They will receive blessing from the LORD
and vindication from God their Savior.
6 Such is the generation of those who seek him,
who seek your face, God of Jacob.
7 Lift up your heads, you gates;
be lifted up, you ancient doors,
that the King of glory may come in.
8 Who is this King of glory?
The LORD strong and mighty,
the LORD mighty in battle.
9 Lift up your heads, you gates;
lift them up, you ancient doors,
that the King of glory may come in.
10 Who is he, this King of glory?

Psalm 24.
