glory [kabowd] is great [gadowl] in thy
salvation: [yashuw`ah] honour [howd] and majesty [hadar] hast
thou laid [shavah] upon him. KJV-Interlinear
5 His glory
is great through Thy salvation, Splendor and majesty Thou dost place upon him. NASB
Glory, splendor, and majesty are a part of every individual believer throughout history.
David is the one being referred to here, but the pattern of his life applies to all believers. And as a believer in Christ, this applies to you.
You have glory. You have honor. You have majesty.
But, these do not come from your own self, or from your own efforts. These do not even originate from you. Neither are they earned or deserved by you.
The only legitimate glory and honor and majesty in existence belong to God and to God alone. No one else has any of these traits as original possessions which they can claim as their own.
God is the source and if you have any of these, then they came from God and from no other source.
The 'Thy and Thou' here indicate Gods work and Gods possession which He provides and places on the believer.
The work of God is consistent throughout the scriptures and throughout history.
Gods work, never mans, is the key to truth and the production of good.
Mans works are never a part of the spiritual life.
God planned and carried out the work of salvation.
God authored the scriptures, and invented the mechanism for mans assimilation of the scriptures.
It is God who communicates truth to man. It is God who makes truth clear and lucid. It is God who transfers truth into the believer, through his human spirit and into the soul. It is doctrine, that is the written manifestation of Christ, who is God. It is doctrine that lays the foundation of truth in the soul and builds the spiritual structure within the soul.
It is the spiritual aspect of your life that is the target for Gods favor and blessing, and the vessel which holds Gods glory, honor and majesty within you, in your behalf.
