Psalms 91:15, “He will call upon me and I will answer him. I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and HONOR him.”
Honor is God’s attitude toward you. When you honor others you are actually expressing the heart of God. God has a healthy opinion of you. He loves you and He knows you. He’s not put off by You and He loves being with you.
So how can you have an attitude of honor toward others that demonstrates God’s honor toward you?
1. By valuing people. You honor who you value. People are important and you need to view them as such. Learn about people. Listen to people. Every person is a unique story. Their story is worth hearing.
2. By building people. You honor people by building them up. By pouring into them the resources that you have that will empower them to live an incredible life. It’s easy to speak against people’s negatives, their fears and your prejudices against them. But you build people by speaking to their potential, their dreams and their ability to overcome.
3. By letting them in. Let them into your life. Share your story with people. Let them know that you want them to enter your life and see you. God wrote the Bible through men to let the human race know Him. God reveals his heart in this incredible book. That’s honor. When you invite people to hear your story and see your story you are telling them that I honor you.
The greatest expression of honor is dialogue. At the end of the verse that began this article it says that God will honor the person who is the subject of Psalms 91. At the beginning of the verse it says, He will call me. When you began a conversation with God He will honor you.God loves to talk with you. God loves it when you invite Him into your life. God is waiting for an invitation. He’s waiting at the door with expectation. He wants to be in your company. He wants to share your life with you. When God comes in it’s a party, because His presence stimulates celebration.
When you value people and build people and let people in you bring celebration to others and that’s what honor is.
