God is most glorified in Himself!

Human attempt at impossible

“He leads me in paths of righteousness for His Name’s sake.” (Psalm 23)

He leads me…for His Name’s sake! He leads me! For His Name’s sake! Who’s leading, guiding, directing? Why is He doing this? What is His purpose for leading me in paths of righteousness? Worship leaders! Don’t think too much of yourself! Rebuke your pride! Repent of your selfishness! God is not surprised! God is not impressed by our feeble efforts to compose or perform music to His glory. He created us. He knows us. From the hairs on our head to the number of days in our lives, He knows everything about us — no surprises. We were created below the angels of heaven who eternally sing in His presence. Their physical beauty is beyond our comprehension and description. Let alone their music and ability to perform music. He will not miss or be upset with a humanity without Bach, Mozart or Beethoven. He will not lament over a generation without the Beatles, Rolling Stones, or even Chris Tomlin. He is God! He can not be contained, described, or belittled by our enormous, incredible, fantastic attempts to magnified Him. Only He can give Himself the praise He is due! He alone is God, there is no other like Him. He is a jealous God. He is most glorified in Himself.
