I Exalt You, O God by Jerry Bridges

We are to worship God in the way we live, this is the public part of our faith. But there is a personal worship we are called to and it this private worship that is explored in the 31 devotions in I Exalt You, O God.

In his book Bridges makes clear that we must come to God through Christ and open to the work of the Holy Spirit in our lives. He gives suggestions from his own private worship, and from the practices of others, to help the reader in their time of worship.

The four parts of the book explore; His greatness, His holiness, His wisdom, and His love. When we begin to understand these four attributes of God then we can begin to truly worship Him more fully and in the way that glorifies Him as He is meant to be.

Each reading has a bible passage, with commentary and personal reflections by Bridges, followed by scripture guided prayer. The readings are fairly short and concise that bring your focus to God then the prayer which is where, in my opinion, we find the real substance of the teaching and how to worship.

To begin, and continue, a practice of private worship takes time, commitment, and perseverance. A good starting place is this book, I Exalt You, O God.

This book was sent to me (as an e-book) by WaterBrook Multnomah free of charge in exchange for this review.
