Read: On the glorious splendor of your majesty, and on your wondrous works, I will meditate. They shall speak of the might of your awesome deeds, and I will declare your greatness. – Psalm 145:5-6
Respond: “Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised, his greatness is unsearchable.” I magnify You, O Lord, I exalt Your name, for You are great and Highly to be praised. I praise You for the glorious splendor of Your majesty and for Your power that is unmatched. You are able to do exceedingly, abundantly more than I could ever ask or imagine. Nothing is too hard for You. There is nobody like You, Lord. Holy, majestic, awesome and praiseworthy, that is You, Lord.
Read: He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and he upholds the universe by the word of his power. After making purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high. – Hebrews 1:3
Respond: Thank You, Father, for Your glory and the glory of Your Son. Thank You that You are making me more and more like Your Son day by day, as I look to You and learn from You. I praise You and thank You for purifying me from sin and unrighteousness. Thank You that You will never leave me or forsake me. You are constant. You have always been and always will be present in my life. “There is none like you, O Lord; you are great, and your name is great in might.”
Read: But the Lord is the true God; he is the living God and the everlasting King. At his wrath the earth quakes, and the nations cannot endure his indignation. – Jeremiah 10:10
Respond: One True God, I praise You. Living God, I worship You. Everlasting King, You are exalted. Thank You for Your sovereignty over both the broad events of my life, and the details of my life. With You, nothing is by accident, nothing by chance. Nothing in my life is wasted—no experience, no failure or frailty. You use all things to shape and mold Your people. Every trial that You allow to happen is a platform on which You reveal Yourself, showing Your love and power, both to me and to others around me. You hold the future. You know the plans and purposes of my life. I love You, Lord.
As you go through this day, remind yourself of God’s purposeful activity in your life. Thank Him often for His work in the details of your day.
