“Who will not fear You, Lord, and glorify Your name?  For You alone are holy; For all the nations will come and worship before You, For Your righteous acts have been revealed” (Revelation 15:4).

In this world it seems as though people are seeking to avoid the reality of the Lord.  Some take for themselves what belongs to the Lord alone.  But the righteousness of the Lord is forever.  All honor does belong to the Lord.  The party of the wicked one will continue to defame the Lord.  Those who follow the Lord will bow down willingly and worship the Lord.  Come then, and live in truth and worship the Lord.

Lord, You are King of kings and Lord of lords.  It can be seen by any who will look, for all of creation is Your work.  The nations ignore you, but I do not.  Teach my heart to not fear people but to fear You.  You alone are holy, and holy is Your name.  You alone are salvation and as many as believe are given a rightful fear, honor, respect, and righteousness.  In You alone is all hope.

Lord Jesus, You alone bore the iniquity of my sin.  You alone are worthy of all honor and praise.  I do not honor and praise You as I should.  Lead me from where I am to where I need to be.  Lead me according to Your goodness, O Lord, so that I may walk humbly in Your sight.  Lead me to live out the truths I speak, be an example of Your presence in my life and glorify Your name, for You alone are holy.  Amen.
