#KnowingJESUS Daily Devotional – HONOR

A country comes to great HONOR when it does right things. But sin makes its people ashamed (Prov 14:34). Sin only drives a man to dishonor and shame.

A country comes to great HONOR when it does right things. But sin makes its people ashamed (Prov 14:34). Sin only drives a man to dishonor and shame.

Joel 2:26-27. And ye shall eat in plenty, and be satisfied, and praise the name of the Lord your God, that hath dealt wondrously with you: and my people shall never be ashamed. And ye shall know that I am in the midst of Israel, and that I am the Lord your God, and none else: and my people shall never be ashamed.


It is important and pertinent for you to know that being a believer or a saint does not makes you inferior or secondary to the Worldling or nominal churchgoers.

Reproach, shame, set backs or failures are not your portion. None of these bring glory or pleasure to God. Your loving Father in heaven expects you to prosper, because only this brings glory and pleasure to Him.

Psalms 35:27. Let them shout for joy, and be glad, that favour my righteous cause: yea, let them say continually, Let the Lord be magnified, which hath pleasure in the prosperity of his servant.

Psalms 36:8. They shall be abundantly satisfied with the fatness of thy house; and thou shalt make them drink of the river of thy pleasures.

3 John 1:2. Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.


Dont ever forget, God created you for His glory and He desires to bring all His saints to honour. Glory to God you are one of them. You shall certainly receive the honour of the Lord in every facets of your life, till Christ comes in Jesus name.

Isaiah 43:7. Even every one that is called by my name: for I have created him for my glory, I have formed him; yea, I have made him.

Isaiah 43:21. This people have I formed for myself; they shall shew forth my praise.

Deuteronomy 26:18-19. And the Lord hath avouched thee this day to be his peculiar people, as he hath promised thee, and that thou shouldest keep all his commandments; And to make thee high above all nations which he hath made, in praise, and in name, and in honour; and that thou mayest be an holy people unto the Lord thy God, as he hath spoken.

Psalms 91:14-16. Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name. He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him. With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.

What God detest, you also must wholeheartedly detest it. Your Father does not want His own people or saints to be ashamed.

This, He repeatedly told Joel the prophet to tell His people and every saint of all ages. Praise God, that includes you too. God does not want you to live in shame or be ashamed. You shall not be ashamed for anything in Jesus name. See what God said.

Joel 2:26-27. And ye shall eat in plenty, and be satisfied, and praise the name of the Lord your God, that hath dealt wondrously with you: and my people shall never be ashamed. And ye shall know that I am in the midst of Israel, and that I am the Lord your God, and none else: and my people shall never be ashamed.


God is not deceitful. He backed up what He said, with corresponding action. He gave all His saints of old glory and honour. Since He has not changed, so expect your own too.

This year and beyond, your Father shall take you to great glory and honour in Jesus name. See some of them and your own name too shall join the list from now on.

1. Joseph:

Genesis 45:12-13. And, behold, your eyes see, and the eyes of my brother Benjamin, that it is my mouth that speaketh unto you. And ye shall tell my father of all my glory in Egypt, and of all that ye have seen; and ye shall haste and bring down my father hither.

2. Jabez :

1 Chronicles 4:9-10. And Jabez was more honourable than his brethren: and his mother called his name Jabez, saying, Because I bare him with sorrow. And Jabez called on the God of Israel, saying, Oh that thou wouldest bless me indeed, and enlarge my coast, and that thine hand might be with me, and that thou wouldest keep me from evil, that it may not grieve me! And God granted him that which he requested.

3. King David:

1 Chronicles 29:26-27. Thus David the son of Jesse reigned over all Israel. And the time that he reigned over Israel was forty years; seven years reigned he in Hebron, and thirty and three years reigned he in Jerusalem.

Psalms 21:4-6. He asked life of thee, and thou gavest it him, even length of days for ever and ever. His glory is great in thy salvation: honour and majesty hast thou laid upon him. For thou hast made him most blessed for ever: thou hast made him exceeding glad with thy countenance.

4. King Solomon :

2 Chronicles 1:11-12. And God said to Solomon, Because this was in thine heart, and thou hast not asked riches, wealth, or honour, nor the life of thine enemies, neither yet hast asked long life; but hast asked wisdom and knowledge for thyself, that thou mayest judge my people, over whom I have made thee king: Wisdom and knowledge is granted unto thee; and I will give thee riches, and wealth, and honour, such as none of the kings have had that have been before thee, neither shall there any after thee have the like.

5. King Jehoshaphat :

2 Chronicles 17:3-5. And the Lord was with Jehoshaphat, because he walked in the first ways of his father David, and sought not unto Baalim; But sought to the Lord God of his father, and walked in his commandments, and not after the doings of Israel. Therefore the Lord stablished the kingdom in his hand; and all Judah brought to Jehoshaphat presents; and he had riches and honour in abundance.

6. King Hezekiah:

2 Chronicles 32:27-28. And Hezekiah had exceeding much riches and honour: and he made himself treasuries for silver, and for gold, and for precious stones, and for spices, and for shields, and for all manner of pleasant jewels; Storehouses also for the increase of corn, and wine, and oil; and stalls for all manner of beasts, and cotes for flocks.

7. Job:

Job 29:20-25. My glory was fresh in me, and my bow was renewed in my hand. Unto me men gave ear, and waited, and kept silence at my counsel. After my words they spake not again; and my speech dropped upon them. And they waited for me as for the rain; and they opened their mouth wide as for the latter rain. If I laughed on them, they believed it not; and the light of my countenance they cast not down. I chose out their way, and sat chief, and dwelt as a king in the army, as one that comforteth the mourners.

8. Mordecai and the Jews :

Esther 8:15-16. And Mordecai went out from the presence of the king in royal apparel of blue and white, and with a great crown of gold, and with a garment of fine linen and purple: and the city of Shushan rejoiced and was glad. The Jews had light, and gladness, and joy, and honour.

9. Aaron :

Hebrews 5:4. And no man taketh this honour unto himself, but he that is called of God, as was Aaron.


Now your own hour of glory, honour and desired liftings have come. It does not matter what is happening globally.

This is because, when men talks of casting down and economy retrogression, God said to His people, lifting up. This is your portion in Jesus name.

Job 22:29. When men are cast down, then thou shalt say, There is lifting up; and he shall save the humble person.

Always remember and never ever forget this. Redemption calls all believers and you in particular to glory .

Romans 8:30. Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.

John 17:22. And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:

Believers of all ages and you too are called to glory and virtue:

2 Peter 1:3-4. According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.

Serving Christ wholeheartedly brings you to unprecedented honour

John 12:26. If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be: if any man serve me, him will my Father honour.

Romans 2:10-11. But glory, honour, and peace, to every man that worketh good, to the Jew first, and also to the Gentile: For there is no respect of persons with God.

Following Christ faithfully makes believers to become vessel of honour. This is your heritage. You must pursue it and possess it.

2 Timothy 2:21. If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master’s use, and prepared unto every good work.

Jesus, our Lord, before the cross prayed for believers of all ages and you too , to live with Him in glory. This shall be your experience in Jesus name.

John 17:24. Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world.

Now if all of these are the heritage of believers here and hereafter, do you not see the colossal losses of the Worldling and nominal churchgoers? These are children’s bread not given to dogs.

Mark 7:27. But Jesus said unto her, Let the children first be filled: for it is not meet to take the children’s bread, and to cast it unto the dogs.

See what those outside the faith are loosing following after the task master satan, thinking they are enjoying, but in reality, they are loosing. I am persuaded that you are not one of them. But don’t you think you should really examine yourself. It is dangerous and very unwise to be presumptuous.

If after critical examination with the blessed Holy Spirit, you discovered that you are not one of this people. Great.

But should you be doubtful and uncertain, quickly plug yourself and take advantage of this ever available redemptive work of Christ. It shall be well with you in Jesus name.

John 1:11-12. He came unto his own, and his own received him not. But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:


Sin makes the Worldling and nominal churchgoers to loose both honour and glory of God and come to perpetual and eternal shame. These shall never be your portion in Jesus name.

It is this same thing that shall hinder them from being part of the dawning rapture. See what the Bible says and never be like them. The good Lord shall help you in Jesus name.

1 Samuel 2:30. Wherefore the Lord God of Israel saith, I said indeed that thy house, and the house of thy father, should walk before me for ever: but now the Lord saith, Be it far from me; for them that honour me I will honour, and they that despise me shall be lightly esteemed.

1 Samuel 4:21-22. And she named the child Ichabod, saying, The glory is departed from Israel: because the ark of God was taken, and because of her father in law and her husband. And she said, The glory is departed from Israel: for the ark of God is taken.

Philippians 3:18-19. (For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ: Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.)

2 Thessalonians 1:7-10. And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels, In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power; When he shall come to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that day.

On the contrary, glory and honour are the lots of every believers that participated in the rapture. Jesus and His people shall sit on glorious thrones for ever and ever. You shall be there in Jesus name.

Matthew 19:28-29. And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That ye which have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name’s sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life.

Romans 2:6-7. Who will render to every man according to his deeds: To them who by patient continuance in well doing seek for glory and honour and immortality, eternal life:

Romans 8:17-18. And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together. For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.

It is the rapture that shall usher believers like you into eternal glory with the Lord. It shall not elude you in Jesus name. So ensure all your decisions and things are. done by you at all times having eternity in view. Receive grace to do so in Jesus name.

Colossians 3:1-4. If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.

1 Peter 1:7-8. That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ: Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory:

See you at the top in Jesus name.
