Devotion: I just can’t stop praising the Lord. I have to be sure His name is always on my lips, His thoughts always on my mind. I can’t separate myself from His Word to me, to His people.
My soul, this one in tribulation and waiting for relief – it has to make its boast in the Lord. Whatever the discomfort and frustration, whatever the itchy sense of unfinished-ness, oh, soul, humble yourself before the Lord and be glad! (Not feel cheerful, soul, but exult in the goodness of the Sovereign God. Exult in Him.) In fact, let’s do it together.
Exult in the Lord with me! Make His Name so big and so prominent in your day that you think “Father… Adonai… Elohim… God… Lord… Savior… Yahweh… Jesus the Christ…” infinitely more times than you think of yourself. Let’s do this thing where we squash our self-absorption and opt for the glorification of the Holy Other. Magnify the Lord with me! Let us exalt His Name together!
O magnify the Lord with me,
And let us exalt His name together.
I sought the Lord, and He answered me,
And delivered me from all my fears.
