Psalm 44:8, "In
God we boast all the day long, and
praise thy name for ever.
While we (in action) are seeking His kingdom and righteousness first (not only), our actions, thoughts, and steps in all that we do should redound to His honour and glory. We may not always be prostrate on our knees in prayer, we may not always be gathered with two or three in His service. But, we have no excuse to ever let our thoughts run to evil, to allow our carnal affections to govern our actions and follow after ungodliness. Do we do these things? I know that I fall short every day, but our goal at the start of every day should be to boast of Him at every moment.
Job said that the Lord's words were more important to him than his necessary food. While our bodies require attention, our families require our love and nurture, our jobs must be tended to, and we are required to provide for our families, the Lord is still the only one that we boast of. His name ONLY is to be praised. There are many preachers I respect and admire. There are men who have taught me much in life, but their name is so far down the list from the Lord's. He is the Lord, and His glory He will not give or share with another.
