Blessed are those who have learned to acclaim you, who walk in the light of your presence, Lord. They rejoice in your name all day long; they celebrate your righteousness. – Psalms 89:15-16 NIV
We need God’s light. Without light, it is difficult to walk without stumbling.
Sometimes we create our own darkness. We allow others to disrupt our thoughts. The Lord sees us clearly and knows what is going on. He knows our thoughts. God knows our prayers even before we utter them.
His name is precious. One of the commandments is to refrain from taking the Lord’s name in vain. When we resent someone, it is tempting to call him or her a bad name, but God asks us to love, not to say words out of resentment. The Spirit of the Lord wants peace for us, and we need to be watchful of the words we say and think.
Jesus is worthy of acclaim. His actions and words are without fault. The more we think about Him, the more we become like Him and appreciate what He sacrificed for us. If we spent all day praising Him, how would our lives change? Amen.
