The Last Words Of A Dying Man…

1 Chronicles 29:12 – “Both riches and honour come of thee [O Lord], and thou reignest over all; and in thine hand is power and might; and in thine hand it is to make great, and to give strength unto all.

These are some of the words of a dying man who had a meager beginning taking care of farm animals.

These are the words of a man who was born the youngest of 8 boys and brought up in a culture where the oldest received all of his parent’s material possessions and the youngest received nothing.

At a very young age, this man realized that because of his birth “position” there was not one single person that he could look to for help up.

I mean think about it, who wants to invest time, energy, or money into a dirty farm boy who has nothing and who has no prospects of a future?

As a boy, this man’s own father discounted him as nothing and worthless – good only for tending to the animals.

Of course, this man had a mother but there is no mention of her in any of his history – evidently, she didn’t want anything to do with him either.

Are you one of those “disadvantaged” people with no one to help you?

Are you one of those “little” people that family, acquaintances, and society has relegated to the status of nothing and unimportant – a person who is good for nothing more than some menial job?

At a young age, this man decided that because of his situation he could either think really small or he could think really bigHe decided that he would think really big.

He said, OK, there’s not a single person who will help me…

So, who is ABOVE people?

That would be God!

So, I’m going to turn to God for help. I’m going to trust in God to lift me up.

At a young age, this man realized that even though there weren’t any people interested in helping him, he also realized that there was no one who could stop him from looking up to the Lord for help.

These are the last recorded words of King David – a man who was a giant killer, a man who taught and showed others how to become giant killers, a man who amassed great wealth and used it to expand God’s Kingdom, a man who showed and taught others how to amass great wealth so that they too could expand God’s Kingdom.

Part 2

1 Chronicles 29:12 – “Both riches and honour come of thee [O Lord], and thou reignest over all; and in thine hand is power and might; and in thine hand it is to make great, and to give strength unto all.

There are some important principles in these last words of King David:

  1. God is in control of all. God reigns over all.
  2. Because God has unlimited power and might, anything and everything is possible with Him – for those who trust in Him.
  3. No matter how powerful certain people may appear and no matter how much “control” they want to assert over your life, they are nothing to God when you are trusting in Him.
  4. No matter how dire external circumstances may seem, they are nothing to God and they are nothing to you when you are trusting in God.
  5. It’s in God’s hands to make people great – if they will receive it. Most people won’t.
  6. It’s in God’s hands to give strength (spiritual, familial, physical, and financial) to everyone who will accept it. Most people won’t.
  7. Most people would like to have riches and honor but they are so busy looking to other people to make everything happen for them that they never turn their lives over to God so that He can make them great.

Just as King David did, you too can trust in God, you too do great things to further the Kingdom of God, you too can teach and show others how to do great things to further the Kingdom of God.

Go ahead and turn your life over to God.

Dare to believe and trust in Him.

See if He don’t lift you up and make you great and give you strength and give you riches and honor.

Look at King David’s last word’s one more time:

Thine, O LORD, is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty: for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is thine; thine is the kingdom, O LORD, and thou art exalted as head above all. Both riches and honour come of thee, and thou reignest over all; and in thine hand is power and might; and in thine hand it is to make great, and to give strength unto all. Now therefore, our God, we thank thee, and praise thy glorious name.
