Glorifying God in the Fire

Wherefore glorify ye the Lord in the fires…

Isaiah 24:15 (KJV)

Glorify means “praise and worship (God)” or “acknowledge and reveal the majesty and splendor of (God) by one’s actions.”

So you could read this verse

  • like this: “Praise and worship the Lord even in the fires.”
  • or like this: “Acknowledge the majesty and splendor of God, and reveal it to others by your actions in the fires.”

Praise and worship Him even in the fires. The storms. The trials. The disappointments. The changes. The uncertainties. Whatever hard thing it is that you’re going through–praise Him. Tell Him who He is, not because He needs reminded, but because you do. Tell yourself He’s still good; remember and claim His promises.

Acknowledge His majesty and splendor. It’s kind of the same thing as above: remind yourself who He is and what He’s done. He’s greater than you (or I) can fathom, so acknowledge that.
Then reveal it to others–tell them about His majesty and glory and awesomeness; and don’t just tell them: show them. Let His grace and joy and peace and strength fill you and flow out of you. Astonish people with your testimony and praise of Him. Allow them to see that there’s something different about you because of Him, that you can only stand this trial because of Him, that you’ll get through this because of Him.

It’ll be hard, I realize that. I need to work on glorifying Him in the fire (and in everyday life!). But we’re commanded to praise, and, more importantly, God totally deserves our praise (plus so much more).

So try to glorify God.

Even in the fires.

The heavens speak of God–do we listen, pay attention? The earth is full of God’s riches–do we seek and cherish them? The beauty of Jesus can be found in ordinary today–do we pause to see and admire?

“We’re doing good stuff here, God. We love this house, this church, this community, this business/ministry. You called us to this, didn’t You? Why change it?”
