“I will praise the Lord at all times. I will constantly speak his praises. I will boast only in the Lord; let all who are helpless take heart. Come, let us tell of the Lord’s greatness; let us exalt his name together.”
Psalms 34:1-3 NLT
Glorifying God with our words and actions is the highest practice of our human existence. Extolling God should be the driving force of all that we think, say, and do! Everything about our lives should exalt the Lord Jesus Christ! There is no person, or anything in all of creation, that is worthy of our devotion and worship. Our lives are given to us by God. Should we not use them to magnify His Name? We can choose to spend our days living for all the wrong things or we can recognize our need to live for the One who gave us life. Come brethren! Let us worship God with our lives, not just with our religious affiliation. Our attending of religious services, and participation in religious rituals, are empty and void if they are not performed out of a heart and life that truly loves God! A life that truly loves Him will put things in priority and proper perspective. When He is Lord of our lives, everything we do is under His authority. We are accountable to him. Whether we are a pastor, plumber, painter, banker, realtor, public safety officer, mill worker, food service worker, caregiver, disabled, retired, etc. our number one priority is to live life to glorify God at all times, in all that we do. Are you exalting Him with your thoughts, words, and actions?
