Psalm 5:7 “But I, by your great mercy, will come into your house;”
[Before you called us into your family, each of us was one of the abhorred: liars mired in evil and deception. We all had the potential to be like the blood thirsty, murderous and deceitful men who roam the world–we just didn’t have the gall or opportunity to act it out.
I praise you that although you abhorred what we were in our natural state, at the same time loved us, then redeemed and transformed us by your great mercy.
This is an unbelievably wonderful and great turning of the tables, an incredible restoration of true reality, far beyond what any human being could imagine or create. You are a wonder, O Lord of love, God of goodness, King of kindness!
“in reverence will I bow down toward your holy temple.”
[What other response could there be than worshiping before you? And doing so in awe, in adoration, in thankfulness, in joy, in peace, in submission, in belief, in willing, wholehearted obedience?
You are God, you are Great, you are Good, and therefore right now I bow before you. May you be glorified in my life today in each decision, each word, each thought, each response, for you are entirely worthy of this honor and much more!]
