January 4 – Exalt the name of the Lord

“Oh magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt His name together.” – Psalm 34:3                    

Scripture reading: Psalm 34:1-22

Life calls us to set priorities. How have you set yours?

Psalm 34 helps us set our priorities aright. Always, our great calling remains to magnify the LORD and to exalt His name and to do that with and alongside fellow believers. Think of the magnifying glass—it brings everything into sharper focus. So too for us, when we set our priorities aright.

Two days ago, we in freedom could be together in the Lord’s house of praise, prayer and proclamation to testify to the greatness of our God and the great things He has done, is doing, and will yet do. 

David in magnifying the LORD bears witness to the happiness of those who trust in God. He writes out of conviction and experience after being delivered from his fears, saved out of his troubles.  And that continues to be the experience of the believer to this very day. God is near the broken-hearted and saves those experiencing a heavy spirit. He hears the believer’s cry for help.

 Praise to God sets the tone for all that we are called to be and do. Will you make praise one of your priorities this year?  

Suggestions for prayer

Ask our heavenly Father to help set our priorities aright in such a way that praise would be a top priority.  Thank the LORD for our deliverance in Jesus Christ.
