…the twenty-four elders fall down before him who sits on the throne and worship him who lives for ever and ever. They lay their crowns before the throne and say:

“You are worthy, our Lord and God,
   to receive glory and honor and power,
for you created all things,
   and by your will they were created
   and have their being.” (Revelation 4:10-11)

Think about the activity in your environment for the past 24 hours. You may or may not have been involved, but think about how great it is for a person to do something that made you and others feel good. When someone prays for another person, an elderly person needs help with getting on their coat, or perhaps someone who is involved in organizing special events. These are all great things that people do, and all of us have opportunity to be a part of these types of activities.

At the end of the day, we review in our mind all that has happened. Sometimes we think “Wow” on those fuller days. There is a common denominator in all the things that happen—God. God’s plan is worked through us. We can give him praise for all things and lay our crowns at his throne.

Prayer: I thank you, Lord, for life. I thank you for Jesus who makes life abundant. I pray that at the end of each day, I can reflect on times I followed you…no matter where it is you take me. Amen

Faith tip: Exercise your praise muscles. See how many times you praise God today.
