Mighty Acts


1 Chron 29: 11a (KJV): "Thine, O LORD is the greatness,..."

After showing us to give public, personal, and perpetual praise to God - David begins to do it. He starts this great prayer of acknowledgement and thanksgiving with the recognition of the greatness of God. The original word carries the idea of dignity, greatness, and mighty acts.

Here David is thanking God for the great way that He had provided for the construction of the Temple. God had provided all the materials through His leaders of Israel. David saw how this would be such a mighty testimony before the people. It would encourage them to follow suit.

David begins his recitation of praise by ascribing to God the responsiblity for the great acts that they had witnessed. Today, can you give glory to God by praising Him for the great things He has done in your life.
