But when the crowds saw this, they were awestruck, and glorified God, who had given such authority to men. Matthew 9:8 NASB
It must have been truly amazing to see someone healed instantly. Jesus did it all the time it seems.
One of the main reasons for miracles is to give glory to God!
Imagine being sick or blind or demon possessed or a family member of someone who was. And then, after a time of helplessness, seeing them healed because of Jesus. You would be excited for them. You might be relieved! But the most important thing is that it happened because of God’s grace and mercy.
As a result, He deserves glory and praise.
Now, He does thing for us all the time. Sometimes, they are so small we don’t recognize them or they are behind the scenes and we don’t realize them.
Either way, He deserves the glory.
Do you make room in your life, in your faith, to give God glory? We all should!
Father, let my life and the words I speak give You glory today and always.
