    Let’s exalt the Lord today

    This morning while reading “The Pursuit of God” by A. W. Tozer, the chapter on Restoring the Creator-Creature Relation struck me as very timely for what is going on in the church community today. Not just in Atlanta but throughout the body of Christ.

    So I just want to offer a couple of paragraphs from my reading and encourage you, if you haven’t already,  to exalt God’s name today.  More than anything or anybody God is worthy of our worship, honor and trust.

    Tozer, a noted author and 20th-century theologian, says in the beginning of the chapter that order in nature depends on right relationships and to achieve harmony each thing must be in its proper position relative to the each other thing. “In human life it is not otherwise,” he wrote.

    He went on to say:

    “In determining relationships we must begin somewhere. There must be somewhere a fixed center against which everything else is measured, where the law of relativity does not enter and we can say ‘IS’ and make no allowances. Such a center is God.  When God would make His name known to mankind He could find no better word than ‘I AM’; When He speaks in the first person He says, ‘I AM’; when we speak of Him we say, ‘He is’; when we speak to Him we say, ‘Thou art.’ Everyone and everything else measures from that fixed point.’IAM THAT I AM,’ (Exodus 3:14) says God, ‘I change not’ (Malachi 3:6)…

    “Millions call themselves by His name, it is true, and pay some token respect to Him, but a simple test will show how little He is really honored among them. Let the average man (or woman) be put to the proof on the question of who or what is above, and his true position will be exposed. Let him be forced into making a choice between God and money, between God and men, between God and personal ambition, God and self, God and human love, and God will take a second place every time. Those other things will be exalted above. However the man may protest, the proof is in the choices he makes day after day throughout his life.

    Let’s start this week with Psalm 34:1-3 ready on our lips and in our hearts:

     I will bless the LORD at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth.

     My soul shall make her boast in the LORD: the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad.

     O magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt his name together.
