Is it possible for God to be the greatest inspiration for your life? Think about anyone who has been a great inspiration to you and think about what inspired you about them. I have a friend who is the best attorney I know—he’s brilliant, hard-working, compassionate, ethical, thorough, humble, and always maintains civility in our profession that is adversarial by nature. I admire him so much that when confronted with a problem at work, I often ask myself—what he would do. And—with particularly tough problems—I know I can just give him a call. Even though he’s an important dude and a lot of people demand his attention—he’s always willing to help me. I absolutely trust his advice because he’s proven himself to me over and over again. He definitely inspires me.

But—as much as any of us may be inspired by a fellow human, isn’t it incredible that we can know God so well that HE can be our inspiration? 

How do we know when God has become a great inspiration to us? Simple—He is our greatest object of praise. We praise who we admire most—because they deserve praise. Is there anyone more deserving of praise than God?

The Psalmist was inspired by his admiration of God and wrote: “Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord, O my soul! I will praise the Lord as long as I live; I will sing praises to my God while I have my being. Put not your trust in princes, in a son of man, in whom there is no salvation. When his breath departs, he returns to the earth; on that very day his plans perish. Blessed is he whose help is the God of Jacob, whose hope is in the Lord his God, who made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, who keeps faith forever; who executes justice for the oppressed, who gives food to the hungry. The Lord sets the prisoners free; the Lord opens the eyes of the blind. The Lord lifts up those who are bowed down; the Lord loves the righteous. The Lord watches over the sojourners; he upholds the widow and the fatherless, but the way of the wicked he brings to ruin. The Lord will reign forever, your God, O Zion, to all generations. Praise the Lord!” (Psalms 146) It is evident the Psalmist had a history of experience with God which inspired admiration and praise.

We know God has become our inspiration when our life manifests admiration for Him. He is OUR great champion. God’s goodness, wisdom, compassion, love and power—to us—inspire admiration—for HIM. 

Is there anyone more inspiring than God?
