Heavenly Father, I was all settled in my cozy precious quiet time with You—ready to share with You, my nearest and closest companion who has always been with me and has never left me…when I was overcome with WHO YOU ARE!!
YOU-who created the galaxies near and far which seem to go on forever- the more we discover, the more we discover Your vast presence and power!
YOU- who made and tenderly cares for that tiny little bird outside my window who sings for joy in the middle of winter!
YOU-who makes the sun rise and set on us, who gives us air to breathe, water to live and hearts with the capability to love.
YOU- who reigns over all heaven and earth, the One whose holy kingdom endures and is victorious over all kings, presidents, wars, genocides, disease, death and the power of evil and hell.
YOU-who has all angels, spiritual beings and every living thing under Your control yet created us to have the choice of whether to love and worship You or not.
YOU- who though every single one of us sin and rebel against You, sent Your own Son Jesus Christ to live a holy life here as one of us—yet without sin—so HE could die for our sins- the only One worthy in all history to save us.
YOU- the One who waits patiently for us to personally accept Jesus’ life, death and resurrection so we can only begin to know who YOU really are!
YOU- the One whose spirit lives in me because of Jesus, who I can share life so intimately with; who I can share my thoughts, fears, joys, requests knowing YOU are with me, leading me!
YOU- the ONE I am overcome with—How is it that You would care about me?! That YOU would love me enough to humble Yourself and die for me so I could live with YOU forever! And not just me…but each of my family, friends, co workers and every single person YOU ever created!
Most Holy Father, I choose to come to YOU in worship and love today because YOU love me and because of who YOU are!
“Praise the Lord, all you nations; extol Him, all you peoples. For great is His love towards us, and the faithfulness of the Lord endures forever. Praise the Lord!” Psalm 117
“I will exalt YOU, my God, the King; I will praise your name for ever and ever. Every day I will praise YOU and extol Your name for ever and ever. Great is the Lord and most worthy of praise; His greatness no one can fathom.” Psalm 145:1-3 (Written by “powerful” King David)
Father, give me the eyes of Jesus to see who YOU are…
