[Remember, while I only post here about once a month, I am posting twice a week over at The Leadership Institute blog. Come over and visit!]
Ps 105:3-4 NIV, “Glory in his holy name; let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice. Look to the Lord and his strength; seek his face always.”
The name of Jesus is a name I can glory in. I understand that two metaphors underlying biblical words for “glory” are weightiness and shining. Glorying in his holy name is acting in ways that make the name of Jesus more weighty in my thoughts, feelings, choices, and actions. I can let my heart choose joy as I seek the Lord. And I can let the person of Jesus shine in my heart and mind, exposing the darkness of fear, anxiety, and distorted desire.
Throughout this day, in each task, project, conversation or whatever, I can look to the Lord and trust in his strength. I say to my soul, “What do you need?” I hear the answer, “Many things.” I respond to my soul, “What do you lack in him?” My soul has to admit, “Nothing.”
I can keep looking today into his face of love, delight, interest, and companionship. Glorious!
