Worthy of Praise

While trying to decide on a topic for today’s article, I came across a handwritten piece of paper where I had scribbled down some thoughts reminding me of God and how worthy He is of our praise.

Exalt, along with its definition, was the first word that I had written down. To exalt is to raise on high, honor, and glorify. Exalt was then followed by the word exaltation and its definition. Exaltation is obviously similar, but it tends to be more of a feeling of great or excessive joy.

As we wake up each day, we see God’s great and wonderful works. It typically starts with us looking at ourselves in a mirror. I believe that looking at our reflection helps us realize that we have been blessed with another day of life. Depending on how we look when we first wake up, it may be a touch difficult to realize what a wonderful creation we are. Our next action might be to glance out the window and check on the weather, which I believe reminds us that God created our world and that He still watches over it even now.

As our day progresses, we are reminded of our many blessings and that God is always there to hear and answer our prayers. We also know that He is faithful to keep His promise to us.

Hebrews 9:11-15

11 But Christ came as High Priest of the good things to come, with the greater and more perfect tabernacle not made with hands, that is, not of this creation. 12 Not with the blood of goats and calves, but with His own blood He entered the Most Holy Place once for all, having obtained eternal redemption. 13 For if the blood of bulls and goats and the ashes of a heifer, sprinkling the unclean, sanctifies for the purifying of the flesh, 14 how much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without spot to God, cleanse your conscience from dead works to serve the living God? 15 And for this reason He is the Mediator of the new covenant, by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions under the first covenant, that those who are called may receive the promise of the eternal inheritance.

We know that God is wise, and we pray that our spiritual wisdom continues to grow along with our faith in Him.

James 3:17

17 But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy. 

May we never forget that we should always have a feeling of exaltation as we exalt God each and every day of our lives. God is worthy of and deserves our praise!
