“… declare and make known His deeds among the peoples of the earth, proclaim that His name is exalted! Sing praises to the Lord, for He has done excellent things; let this be made known to all the earth. Cry aloud and shout joyfully, you inhabitants of Zion, for great in your midst is the Holy One of Israel.” (Isaiah 12:4-6)

We are given two great mandates for life; number one is to love God with all that we are and number two is to make His greatness known everywhere. What a great God – what an amazing Father. I love how both are such noble and honorable purposes. He is so good and we are so blessed! This passage in Isaiah is one of my favorites. It keeps us focused on the greatness of our God and how we are to make Him known among the nations.

I want to encourage you today to start at home; making His greatness known among your family and friends and then to your neighbors. Allow God to shine forth through your life with excellence in the everyday places.

The willingness to allow Him to deepen our enthusiasm and take us beyond the mundane – into real explosive joy; enables those around us to see how He wants His goodness to be made known.

 He is great… I encourage you to totally enjoy Him and share Him with your world. (Mt 28:19-20) We have been commissioned to proclaim His excellence… with excellence.
