Glorify the Lord with me; let us exalt his name together. Psalm 34:3
Lifting someone or something up and glorifying it is a very common thing to occur among people. What people glorify is uncountable. Some will glorify a job, a singer, an actor, a sports team, and the list in endless. People will glorify whatever it is that they are excited about, whether it is for the positive or the negative.
In the process of lifting up, they will often make the person or thing out to be the best in whatever field the person or thing is. This can also be see abstractly in that some will say some thing glorifies an action, attitude or thought.
Some will say that football may glorify violence. Movies will glorify crime and killing. Again the list is endless as to what is glorified and how it is glorified.
David called for the people to glorify the Lord with him. He wanted to praise God with others and not just himself, alone.
Glorifying God is talking extremely highly of Him to everyone and anyone anywhere a person is. It is constantly talking about God around other people.
When a person thinks about it, there is not too much that can be said about God. The list of His qualities and qualifications are infinite, going on forever. The list of good things that God has done is endless. And this list is for each and every believer.
As one is glorifying God, he is also being a witness to others as to who God is. It is the process of letting the world get a glimpse of who God is. This also takes the focus off of problems and this world and focuses on the eternal. It will bring joy to the heart.
Take time each day to think about the qualities and characteristics of God and what He has done for you and for others. Think of all the blessings God has blessed you with. Give God praise for those things.
Be willing to glorify the Lord by telling Him what you think of what He has done and who He is. Then go out and tell the world what God has done and who He is. This is glorifying God.
Do not let the temporary things of this world get your focus and bring you down. Focus on God and His perfect qualities and actions. Who or what will you glorify today?
I pray today that you will have a personal relationship with God; that you will know God’s character; that you will know the blessings you have in Jesus; and that you will glorify God wherever you are.
