“The people I formed for Myself, that they may set forth My praise [and they shall do it.]” (Isaiah 43: 21, Amplified Bible)
We are God’s people. We were formed out of His intention and to accurately express His own beauty, perfection, harmony, and grandeur. God made His people for Himself, in order that He be seen in every place, and so that He would have a wonderful reason for and a worthy object of His boundless, perfect Love.
What is our purpose? To be what God’s Love caused us to be; to show forth His glory as we walk in this world, bringing His own Spirit to life in all that we think and express, in our very being. Not only is it right to praise God, the Source and substance of us, but it is an imperative demand. God requires that we shall do it! No ifs, ands, or buts!
Let’s know our own dignity, our own well-being, and our own splendor. God made us to radiate forth His own perfect Self, His eternal and magnificent qualities. You can’t fail to do this, just as God can’t ever stop being the infinite All-in-all. God’s glory is in this very place and you are, right now and always, the evidence of that amazing fact! Be that glory now. Just do it!
