yesterday this crazy thought just popped in my head: “God gets the glory when i simply kick a rock.”
i then begin to sit and try to reason, with my incapable human mind, how God gets the glory from me kicking a rock …
- God created the rock.
- God created me.
- the ground i kicked it on, God created it.
- i had to walk to the rock, God ordered those steps.
- God’s sovereignty put me in front of that rock at that perfect time and at that perfect place.
- God giving me having the ability to kick the rock (meaning that my toes are aligned how God intended, my foot is “wired to the t”, my shin is working with the rest of my leg, which is connected to the strongest pivotal body part :the hip, all while my spine is the backbone of my body that allows me to stand, my brain is giving all the signals, i’m alive so my cells are working, there is also coordination and thought involved for me to kick the rock as far as i want to, eyes for me to see the rock, the ability for me to inhale and exhale to perform a proper kick, etc. (i was seriously pondering how genius God is.)
then it hit me, whether or not i think about this or not, all of the above remains true, which means that God gets the glory regardless, which means that it doesn’t matter what i do or think, God will get the glory! which means that God’s glory is not measured upon my actions!!!
*sit and think about that for like 10 minutes lol … no i’m serious*
ok so randomly, here’s an example of a rapper who doesn’t fall under the “christian” genre, but gives glory to God, seemingly unintentionally, by rapping as if he were satan – and might i add he spits 100% truth on this track.
this song really spoke to me because i am definitely an ex hip-hop worshiper (all music for that matter), and i was definitely the type to bump my stereo before reading my bible, and i sometimes still am :/, but thank God for Jesus Christ.
***warning: the “n-bomb” is dropped like 3 times. that about it.***
“you can be saved if you pick up the book and read but you’d rather turn your stereo up and bump me.”
