Isaiah 25:1, “O Lord, thou art my God; I will exalt thee, I will praise thy name; for thou hast done wonderful things; thy counsels of old are faithfulness and truth.”
This is a verse that every person ought to make personal. It isn’t enough to say that God is our parent’s God, pastor’s God, friend’s God, teacher’s God, etc. God must be OUR God. We must make it personal.
There are those every day that will exalt and praise God for Who He is and what He’s done. However, that is not enough. Again, we must make it personal. We ought to strive each and every day to personally exalt God and praise Him. Saying that others will do it is not a good excuse not to do it ourselves.
God is so good and so faithful to us. We ought to want to make Him our God. He hasn’t given us a reason to think otherwise. If we truly make God our personal God, the part of exalting Him and praising Him will just fall into place.
Who is God to us today? Is He just God or is He OUR God? Are we praising Him like we should? Are we exalting Him like we should? Let us focus today on making Him our God and giving Him the praise that He is worthy of. Revelation 4:11 says, “Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.” We were created for the purpose of bringing God pleasure and giving God praise is one way to fulfill that. Others will do this, but that should not satisfy us. We ought to want it to come from us as well.
