11 “Worthy are you, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they existed and were created.”
Imagine the world we live in and consider for a moment all the stars in the sky, all placed there by God; or the sand along the seashore, every grain of which God will to exist; or the atoms that make up your body – all of these things from the largest and brightest star to the smallest atom, they all exist because God willed it to exist, they are all his creation. In a moment he brought it into existence and if he desired he could cause it all to vanish as if it never existed. All of creation has his stamp on it and he could say of it all, “It’s mine!” The very fact that anything exists, even yourself, is due to God’s authority, power and wisdom and for that reason we should bow our knee to him, giving him the glory and honor that is due his name just as the creatures surrounding the throne are doing right now. Praise him today. Praise him for all of his creation. Praise him for his power to create. Praise him for the wisdom he displayed in his creation. Praise him for he is your Creator, your Lord and your God.
