For the Kingdom, the POWER and the Glory belongs to You. Why do we Christians pray the POWER belongs to God?

Christians, for thousands of years, have accomplished powerful things. We have educated and fed the masses, healed, obtained spiritual knowledge, done heroic feats and other miracles. Why do we acknowledge that God has the POWER and deserves the glory? If we may obtain all things, be all things, why not... show more Christians, for thousands of years, have accomplished powerful things. We have educated and fed the masses, healed, obtained spiritual knowledge, done heroic feats and other miracles. Why do we acknowledge that God has the POWER and deserves the glory?

If we may obtain all things, be all things, why not believe it all comes from us? It is recorded that some, such as the apostles, have been empowered to do almost all things. Peter gave the glory to God chastizing those who believed he was God. (Acts 3:11-12) Such a Christian could become self-sufficient to the point of believing all things are for and come from himself. Having eternal life, he could be all things to himself eternally. He could eternally love only himself circling forever into himself. Is this Heaven on Earth or Hell itself?

Given that no one is capable of sustaining himself alone, is it not a generosity that God has us give Him the glory? Isn't He saving us from ourselves?

Yours in Christ Jesus, Grace
