“The King is mighty; he loves justice—you have established equity;”
Praise be to you, Lord Jesus, King of Kings, Lord of Lords, Ruler of the universe, Creator and Sustainer of all. You are the star-Breather, the atom Keeper, the earth Spinner, and the dawn Bringer. I exalt you, King Jesus, for you are mighty and powerful, the Most High, the immeasurably strong, majestically great and eternal God.
You are undefeatable, unconquerable, unlimited, unending. You are the Source of all strength, the Provider of all power, the Author of all authority. You are the Ruler who reigns in all regions of life. No bird flies without your knowledge, no man sins without your grief, no person acts without your seeing, and no evil is allowed that cannot be woven into your plan of redemption and revival.
Before you, we all are judged by the same great and sinless standard, for you are the perfect, holy and righteous Judge. You know all our thoughts, all our motives, all our secret acts, all our manipulations, all our rebellion against your standard of perfect goodness. You can, without dispute, pronounce what is evil, punish what is sin, banish what is wrong.
You, the sinless, pure, untainted and perfect God, will remove sin from your presence. And you will purify from sin all those who come into your shelter of salvation so we may live forever in holy and harmonious relation with you, eternally giving glory to you.
Lord, “…you have done what is just and right.” Therefore, we will “Exalt the LORD our God and worship at his footstool; he is holy” (Ps. 99:4b,5). We praise you, Lord God that we can bow before your footstool, that you allow us entrance into your presence, that as we come in the blood of Christ, that our worship is acceptable to you.
I exalt you Lord God for what you are: pure and powerful, good and gracious, mighty and magnificent, wise and wonderful, holy and happy, eternal and ever-present, all seeing and all knowing, intimate and involved, caring and consistent, loving and lavish, rich and real, forgiving and forever.
You, Lord God—Father, Son and Holy Spirit—are Triune and total in yourself; you are worthy of worship without considering how your qualities benefit me—and they certainly do!
Prayer: “To you be glory and honor today in my life as I live under the hand of your love and protection, deeply satisfied in you, Lord God, the great Shepherd and King of my life. Amen.”
