The eternal God of the universe wants to be your close, personal friend. He longs to be your shield. Your deliverer. Your King. To become your personal God. During a particularly difficult crisis in his life, King David described God as “my glory” (Psalm 3:3). What exactly does that mean? Glory is akin to one’s reputation. So when we give God glory, we exalt His name. We want to render a good opinion of the One who has given us life. King David saw his purpose in life to exalt the Lord’s name. To make Him and Him alone look good. David simply wanted to point his own followers to God, and let God’s name receive fame. David’s life was all about giving God glory. That’s why he could call God my glory. Do you exalt the Most High by giving God glory? Pray to Him today: “Daddy, help me honor You with every area of my life. Help me glorify Your great name. All things good in me are from You. I want to credit you for all the gifts in my life - big and small.” God alone is my personal glory.
