Oh, magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt his name together! Psalms 34:3 (ESV)
Today’s theme verse comes from David who shouts out a call to praise and exalt God for all His goodness.
Today even more than King David, we have every reason to be thankful and exalt our Father and our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
For not only has He delivered us from our enemy the devil and his arsenal of demons and the powers of darkness, but He has also put them under our feet where we are in permanent dominance over every foe in every realm.
Added to that through His Son Christ Jesus has made us masters, even joint-heirs of this earth together with Christ. Praise be to God!
However, the questions stand, how do we exalt Him? Though simple, this question is very crucial. Say you’re a parent who has spent everything for the education of your child. What should that child do to exalt his parents?
Sure, a “thank you” will be good but not good enough. If your child says, “thank you” and is negligent and fails the exams, then his/her thanks will loose its value and give up the parent’s intent.
Therefore, the best way for a child to exalt the parents is to be grateful but more so, be diligent in studies and pass the exams the best way possible.
Coming back to us, how best can we exalt our Father? Our Father through Christ Jesus gave us Life (The God-Life) and the Word so we can operate in that new Life.
The best way therefore to exalt our Father is to live His Life by practicing His Word. For in so doing, we’ll manifest that which He has made us (Kings, Lords, and Priests)and attaining the measure of the fullness of Christ “to the intent that now the manifold wisdom of God might be made known by the church to the principalities and powers in the heavenly places…” Ephesians 3:10
Our Father is not interested in the billions we make, but in the measure of His wisdom that we have in us and exert in our world; how much we’re becoming like Jesus Christ whom we’re birthed to conform to. (Romans 8:29).Our Father is not interested in the billions we make, but in the measure of His wisdom that we have in us and exert in our world; how much we’re becoming like Jesus Christ whom we’re birthed to conform to.Click To Tweet
