Day 5

 

Scripture

Psalm 34:3 TLV

Magnify Adonai with me and let us exalt His Name together.

Heart Thoughts

If you approach God, must be approached as the supreme authority in your life. It is His Name alone that is to be exalted. He cannot be one more god among many. He cannot be one more hero among many heroes. He cannot be one more good role model amongst many role models. He demands a preeminence and a supremacy, the ascendancy in your life.

The Bible says you were built to worship somebody or something. Bob Dylan says you were built to worship somebody. Whatever you magnify and worship you will become. If you worship the culture you will become the culture. If you magnify violence you become a violent person. If you magnify a toxic sexuality you will become a toxically sexual person. Whatever you worship you will become.

When you choose to magnify and worship the living God you become like Him.  The psalmist says they will reflect God’s radiant glory Psalms 34:5-7

Psalm 34:5–7 TLV

They who looked to Him were radiant, and their faces will never be ashamed. This poor man cried, and Adonai heard, and saved him out of all his troubles. The angel of Adonai encamps around those who fear Him, and delivers them.

The psalmist says that we will never lack anything because He does not lack anything in and of Himself, Psalm 34:9-11

Psalm 34:9–11 TLV

Fear Adonai, His kedoshim, For those who fear Him lack nothing. Young lions may lack, and go hungry, but those who seek Adonai want for no good thing. Come, children, listen to me: I will teach you the fear of Adonai.

All of this is the result of magnifying the Lord. Exalting the Name of Adonai.  He promises each of us and all of us benefits beyond what we could imagine when we choose to magnify and worship Him exclusively.

Bracha

May the Lord God of Israel bless you with blessings that you cannot imagine. May He do exceedingly great things for you because of the power that is at work inside of you. May your heart belong exclusively to Adonai and may you experience all His wonderful benefits!

For the Feed

If you approach God, He must be approached as the supreme authority in your life. It is His Name alone that is to be exalted. He cannot be one more god among many. He cannot be one more hero among many heroes. He cannot be one more good role model amongst many role models. He demands a preeminence and a supremacy, complete devotion of your heart.
