We are called to glorify God every day of our lives. We are called to rely upon His strength. We are called to be His holy people and give Him offerings in His Holy courts every minute of our lives. Psalm 96:7-9 states that we are to tremble before Him and worship Him.

How can we do this when we are overloaded with careers, raising families, taking care of our daily duties, and then trying to get a little bit of rest at the end of the day? Not everyone is called into a pastoral ministry. Most of us are common people living ordinary lives.

Yet God wants a very close, intimate relationship with each one of us. It does not matter what career we choose. He blessed us with the abilities and skills to perform those duties. He blessed us with the circumstances to have the jobs we have. It does not matter if we have we children or immediate family in our homes. He has blessed each one of us with loving people in our lives so that no one is totally alone. He has blessed us with minds that enjoy countless interests and hobbies and also yearn for knowledge.

All that matters is that we are His. He calls us to glorify Him with everything He has blessed us with. The most precious sacrifice we can give Him is to be thankful and joyful in our mindsets, praising Him, and constantly acknowledging His presence and His blessings in all that we have and all that happens. He is our Jehovah–Jireh, our provider.

Our silent minute-by-minute prayers glorify God. We are entering into His courts and trembling before Him. We are dependent upon Him to lead us, guide us, and for Him to speak through us. We want to make decisions that are in His will and honor Him. We want to see others as He sees them. We are marveling at each blessing that we see throughout the day.   We worship the splendor of his Holiness as we become aware of His presence and His love on a minute-by- minute basis.

Life looks differently when we continually glorify God. The difficult things are still there, but they are overshadowed by the majesty of God’s presence in all things. We are so blessed.

We still need to set aside special time with God. I encourage each person to take at least 10 minutes a day completely away from everyone and everything. Just spend time with God. Don’t ask Him for anything. Praise Him, give thanks, and glorify Him for who He is. Just marvel at Him, bless Him, ask the Holy Spirit to enter into your heart, and give Him thanks. What a wonderful, intimate time with God. Ten minutes may not sound like much time, but in our society 10 minutes in seclusion is a challenge. Seek God regularly and intimately.   At first this may be challenging, but the more time you spend with God, the more you WANT to spend time with God.

Isaiah 43:4 states, “Since you are precious and honored in My sight, and because I love you…”

How wonderful to be loved and honored by our Creator, our Lord, and our Father. Just think – He loves YOU!

 

Lord,

Help me to draw away with You.

I want us to have a more intimate relationship.

Thank you Father, that You love me and want to spend time with me.

Amen.
