OUR GOD IS WORSHIPPED, HONORED, ESTEEMED, MAGNIFIED, GLORIFIED, OBEYED, EXALTED AND PRAISED . . .
By Pieter Kirstein

glorified, obeyed, exalted and praised through His purification of His people.
2 Give to the LORD the glory due to His name; worship the LORD
in the beauty of holiness.
He does this work of grace in us through inward transformation and sanctification and restoration. It's the loving gentle and kind way of the skillful potter who fully understands just how dependent we,
the fragile clay, are before Him and that without Him we can do nothing, so never accuse, ridicule, judge, hate nor condemn yourself for what only He can change in you.
Learn to see everything from His
loving understanding perspective. He shows us through our brokenness, our shortcomings, our weaknesses, our faults, through every failure, yes even through the stubbornness and arrogance of the sinful ways of our fleshly natures, exactly just how completely
we are in need of Him.

1 A Psalm of David. The LORD [is] my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The LORD [is] the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
2 When the wicked, my enemies and my foes, came on me to eat my flesh, they stumbled and fell.
3 Though an army should camp against me, my heart shall not fear; though war should rise against me, in this
I am trusting.
4 One [thing] I have desired from the LORD, that I will seek after: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to pray in His temple.

6 And now my head shall be lifted up above my enemies, my encirclers; and I will offer
sacrifices of joy in His tabernacle. I will sing; yea, I will sing praises to the LORD.
7 Hear, O LORD, [when] I cry with my voice; and have mercy on me, and answer me.
8 My heart says to You,
Seek my face; Your face, O LORD, I will seek;
