Only God, who makes up three persons, is who we ought to worship and praise. I am speaking of the Father, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. In reverence do I even speak their names. In awe do I think of my great God, Elohim, who is made up of three persons. God has created us in His own image. We are made like the Lord God, Almighty. Not that we will ever become a god ourselves, but that through the Holy Spirit in us, we can walk differently. And in so doing, we shine our lights before men, so that people will praise the Father, who is in Heaven. Jesus died for our sins and we have much to praise Him for also. Therefore, give thanks to God and pray, “I will extol thee, O Lord; for thou hast lifted me up, and hast not made my foes to rejoice over me. O Lord my God, I cried unto thee, and thou hast healed me. O Lord, thou hast brought up my soul from the grave: thou hast kept me alive, that I should not go down to the pit. Sing unto the Lord, O ye saints of his, and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness.” (Psalm 30:1-4)
Extol means to worship the one true God of the heavens. Acknowledge the Lord and His hand in your lives. There is so much help to receive if we are simply willing to acknowledge God in our lives. I am speaking of mercy, forgiveness, patience, peace, healing, gladness, love, joy, and much more. All good things come from God and that is what we will also experience in heaven. Why not cry out to Him today? No matter how long it has been, fall down upon your knees in all your confessions. Pray as David did and say, “Hear, O Lord, and have mercy upon me: Lord, be thou my helper. Thou hast turned for me my mourning into dancing: thou hast put off my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness; To the end that my glory may sing praise to thee, and not be silent. O Lord my God, I will give thanks unto thee for ever.” (Psalm 30:10-12) To the Lord God, Almighty, I give Him all my praise. I extol Him and Him alone will I worship. Come unto Him and walk in His light today. May the Lord be with You as you begin to seek His face daily. Amen.
Let us pray:
Oh Lord, I pray that people will earnestly come to You in all their confessions. That they will cry out to You and acknowledge themselves as sinners in Your sight. I know that I need a Savior and am so happy that You have come into my life, Jesus. There is salvation only through faith in You. People in all religions need to acknowledge You as more than a person or prophet, but God Himself to be saved. I am grateful to know that Hindus, Buddhists, Muslims, and more religious people are turning from their false teachings to You, Jesus. And more than this are people that know about You. Some of them are also acknowledging You in their lives and receiving You as their Lord and Savior. We just need more people that know about You to do that and be saved. There is true help that comes from You, God. We can find pleasures in many different things, but only You can supply everything we’d ever need. Because You lead me on a daily basis, I am safe. God, lead me this day and forever and to heaven. I love You, Jesus. I give You praise, God. Amen.
