‘I will say of the Lord, ”He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust”. Surely, He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler. And from the perilous pestilence. Psalm 91: 2-3 (NKJV)

In the above scripture, and in the entire Psalm 91, the Psalmist is declaring His absolute trust in God. He has a personal relationship with God, and he is fully aware and confident of the benefits that flow supernaturally from this divine relationship, regardless of what is going on around him.

Notice that the Psalmist does not just know it, he says it. It is by declaring who God is to us, what He is doing in our lives, and what His Word says, that we give glory to God. When we are fixated on the situation and the challenges, we get trapped into a habit of talking about, analysing and magnifying the problem. Our words carry weight. The Hebrew word for glory is kabod, and the root meaning of kabod is weight. We all know that weight is measurable. Since the current situation began, how much of your words have gone into giving weight to the situation and how much have gone into giving weight to God and His Word in your life, your home, your studies, your work, your business, and your future?

Whatever your answer is to that question, God is giving you the opportunity to give Him the glory. He deserves it. He is worthy of it. And He expects it. Everything was created to give Him glory. The goodness of God is perpetually with those who give Him glory. Let us begin this very moment to give God all the glory due to Him. And all of God’s goodness will flourish in your life now and forever in Jesus’ name.
