It is good to praise the LORD and make music to your name, O Most High, proclaiming your love in the morning and your faithfulness at night, Psalm 92:1-2
In this life there are many things to do. Of these many things, there are many that are good and helpful. Exercising daily, eating healthy food, helping others out, praying for others, taking baths, washing the dishes, cleaning the house, and the list goes on.
As a person goes through life, it is easy to get caught up in the good physical things to be done. While all of these things are good, all of them are temporary. They are things that are good for life on this earth, but once a person dies, they hold very little meaning anymore.
No matter how much a person exercises and eats healthy, there will come a day when he will still die. The good exercise and eating may prolong the death, but it will still come.
One thing that a person needs to do that has a lasting impression for eternity, is praising God.
Starting out the morning proclaiming God’s love begins the day focused on God. As you get up in the morning remember God’s great love in giving you another day to serve and love Him. Keep in mind that His mercies and compassions are new every morning. Remember His great love in forgiving you of all of your sins. Tell others about God’s great love to you and them.
At the end of your day take time to remember God’s faithfulness throughout the day. How did God provide for all of your needs during that day? What opportunities did God give you to serve Him and others? How did God show His faithfulness by protecting you? How did God reveal His presence to you though the day? How did He give you peace and comfort in your day?
The list of God’s faithfulness to you is never-ending. Think and talk about those things at the end of the day. Let the world know that God is faithful.
Among all of the things that you can do or need to do, these two things should be at the top of your list. Praising God and telling of His faithfulness. That is being the light in this world.
I pray today that you will know God’s love more in your life; that you will see God’s faithfulness more in your life; that God’s presence will be more real in your life; and that you will be a light for Jesus to this world.
