Psalms 24, 25, 26
Focus Verse: To you, O Lord, I lift up my soul. – Psalm 25:1
To lift up your soul means to direct your internal thoughts and inmost will to focus on the exaltation of God. When you put your focus on God’s glory and place your trust in God’s Son, Jesus the Christ, then your soul will also be exalted (lifted up) above any trouble or obstacle that you face.
To lift up your soul is an act of trust in God’s character, goodness, and grace.
Your soul may be broken, drifting, overwhelmed, doubtful, or lonely. But if you lift it up to God, He can fix it. He can fix you, heal you, forgive you, love you, and save you. When you lift up your soul to God, you show that your hope and your trust is in Him. Instead of focusing on your circumstances, you deliberately choose to focus on God and His power. You recognize that He is exalted above every negative person in your life and above every negative situation.
How often do you “lift up your soul” to God?
