Anglican Daily Fountain 3rd March 2024 (Devotional Today)

Welcome to Today’s Daily Fountain Devotional of the Anglican Church of Nigeria. Daily Fountain is a daily reading devotional for all Anglicans and Non-Anglicans to read, study, share and discuss the Word of God on a daily basis.

TOPIC: NOT TO US, NOR ANY IDOLS

TEXT: Psalm 115: 1-7(KJV)
115:1. Not unto us, O LORD, not unto us, but unto thy name give glory, for thy mercy, and for thy truth’s sake.
115:2. Wherefore should the heathen say, Where is now their God?
115:3. But our God is in the heavens: he hath done whatsoever he hath pleased.
115:4. Their idols are silver and gold, the work of men’s hands.
115:5. They have mouths, but they speak not: eyes have they, but they see not:
115:6. They have ears, but they hear not: noses have they, but they smell not:
115:7. They have hands, but they handle not: feet have they, but they walk not: neither speak they through their throat.

Anglican Daily Fountain 3rd March 2024 STUDY:

Psalm 115 is one of the psalms used by the Jews during Passover celebrations and possibly sung by Jesus and His disciples the night He was betrayed, arrested, and crucified. The psalm ascribes all glory to God (not to self or idols), in all things. It excluded any forms of boasting (v.1); it makes no room for projecting self-merit or self-glory, but glory is centered on God.

Rick Warren began his best-seller book, The Purpose Driven Life with, “It’s not about you.” This is the meaning of Psalm 115: 1 “Not to us, LORD, not to us but to your name be the glory.” Have we received any Mercy? Success? Glory? Grace? Say not, “The power of my hand has gotten this wealth” (Deut.8:17)nor, “For my righteousness, the Lord has done these great and kind things for me” (Deut. 9: 4).

Our words should be,’Not to us Lord!’ We must take courage in God that He alone can do what we are asking for and not any idol or god. For us to do this, however, we must have the right relationship with God. It is a life-long journey which does not happen overnight. We also like Jesus, must learn to pray, “Not my will, but yours be done!”(Luke 22: 42).

PRAYER: Dear Lord, forgive me in any way I trusted in idols or self-merit. Not my will Lord, but Yours be done.
