I will exalt you, my God the King; I will praise your name for ever and ever. Every day I will praise you and extol your name for ever and ever. Psalm 145:1-2 NIV
Simply Sunday is a time to lower all of the distractions and stress of life. Singing, solitude, focused prayer are all tools at your disposal to take every thought captive. Worshiping God is not complicated. Jesus said the time has come for those who worship God, to worship Him in spirit and in truth.
Our verse today encourages us to exalt God, our king.
- To exalt is to lift something up to the highest place of honor.
- To exalt is an intentional, purposeful action to rearrange priorities in order of importance. Evaluate what you say is most important with the reality of how you are living it out.
- To exalt is a personal and subjective passion. It finds its home in a heart to heart connection
- To exalt is a public declaration made with or without words. Others will observe what you exalt. They will see the truth of what you feel and act as most significant in your life.
- To exalt is to give yourself fully. Everything is worth trading when you find the gold of the kingdom of God
- To exalt is the face of worship. Half hearted engagement of praise falls short of exaltation.
May God bless all worshipers on this Sunday with authentic, exuberant exalted worship. God inhabits the praises of His people. Place your hand over your heart during worship and ask God, “Come and fill this place”. Then turn your hands toward the rest of the sanctuary and pray the same prayer, “Jesus, be exalted. Come and fill the place and people.”
Blessings Love y’all
