Revelation 4:10-11 (AMP) the twenty-four elders fall down before Him who sits on the throne, and they worship Him who lives forever and ever; and they throw down their crowns before the throne, saying, “Worthy are You, our Lord and God, to receive the glory and the honor and the power; for You created all things, and because of Your will they exist, and were created and brought into being.”
Beloved, I AM worthy to receive. So just as the elders cast their crowns before Me, surrender that which you hold dear – that which brings you glory, and give it as an offering to Me. Your accomplishments achieved with talents and wisdom I gave you, in those acknowledge Me. Your creations executed with inspiration from My Spirit, in those give glory to Me. Your positions granted with favor and success that comes from Me, in those honor and exalt Me.
All that you are and all that you have is from Me. Give honor where honor is due, for I will receive those sacrifices and offerings. They are a sweet fragrance before My throne. For it is exquisitely precious to be acknowledged by a good and grateful steward making the most with what he has been given.
