Honor Is (Three)

by Catherinebutterfly

dedicated to Memphis Vaughan 

Give God the honor in your business

In your marriage

In your personal and private life and time

Always go before Him in prayer

With honesty and truth

Where you want to go He will get you there.


To be an entrepreneur is godly

To be a manager is ungodly


The decision to honor God

In business once has been made,

Is to prosper as you go

Giving God the praise as you go

Even when that business is going slow


In Loving God and honoring Him

Let us remember that massive stones

Can go wrong

And imported timbers in and of themselves

Will never bring honor to the Lord as

He intends and deserves.

This may be good indeed,

But beholding unto His children needs

Touches, blesses and honor Him

Will bless beyond belief

Into the point of total release.

While stepping on the beast.

Christians today face the same crisis

Of authenticity as long ago.

Our challenge is to remember that

A heart thriving in a personal relationship

With our magnificent Savior will produce

Actions honoring God—

And nothing but you can tear that apart.

Honoring God as the head of our lives and

The seeker of our hearts makes a Happy God

But that order cannot be reversed for it

Would be a curse.

Common sense tells us sweet,

Fresh water naturally flows from a spring.

And we can’t just give God any ole thing.

Just because you've found water,

However, doesn't mean there is a spring—

It might be a cesspool!

So don’t you be no fool

If you're not a creator,

Then you're a creature.

Unless I am conscious of

Being that which I seek,

I will not find it.


As honoring God requires

A decision to do so and appropriate

Direction to take,

So it must result in

A determination to act

And react even if the devil try and attack


 Proverbs 3:9 reminds us,

"Honor the Lord with your wealth,

With the fristfruts of all your crops.

Give Him His right off the top

“Surely giving joyfully and sacrificially

Is one first step in our acts to honor God,

A step that will be accompanied by many more—

To the glory of God!

The old saw may be trite, but most often it is true:

Actions speak louder than words.

If we desire to honor the Lord in our life,

Then that desire will be expressed best when given

The concrete substance of action—

When we do something to honor him.

Do it until we find satisfaction.

And I promise you, you’ll rest better at night

When you ask Him is He pleased,

You will fall asleep before you rise up off your knees.
