Life This Week


I have a friend named Becky. She is one of the most devoted followers of Jesus I know and she is always praising God with her mouth and with her life. When my daughter was little, she called Becky, “the woman who says Hallelujah.” I want to be the woman who says Hallelujah. This week, I just want to praise and worship God, the God who rescued me and gave me new life, the God who loves me and forgives me. I want to remember that this life and world is not about me or for me; it’s about him and for him.  So, here’s what I’m doing this week:

I’m reading 1 Chronicles 16:7-36. I love these verses in particular: “Sing to the LORD, all the earth; proclaim his salvation day after day. Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous deeds among all peoples. For great is the LORD and most worthy of praise; he is to be feared above all gods. For all the gods of the nations are idols, but the LORD made the heavens. Splendor and majesty are before him; strength and joy in his dwelling place.” (1 Chron 16:23-27)

I’m praying A.W. Tozer’s prayer. O Lord God Almighty, not the God of the philosophers and the wise but the God of the prophets and apostles; and better than all, the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, may I express You unblamed? They that know You not may call upon You as other than You are, and so worship not You but a creature of their own fancy; therefore enlighten my mind that I may know You as You are, so that I may perfectly love You and worthily praise You. In the name of Jesus Christ my Lord. Amen. – Knowledge of the Holy
