You, O Yahweh, the great I AM, are the perfect balance, the perfect combination of traits: truth and grace, love and wrath, righteousness and forgiveness, wisdom and knowledge, power and tenderness, goodness and impartialness, hatred for sin and love for sinners.
The more we know you, the more reason there is for worship. You, O God, are wonderful, fear-inspiring, comfort-giving, sin-revealing, grace-providing, heart-healing, attitude-correcting, soul-transforming, love-infusing, life-giving and eternal-living—what more could we want?
Knowing you means that daily we can turn more and more to you, more and more away from the tinsel and trinkets the world has to offer. Every day we can move further into your Kingdom, reveling in your being, rejoicing in your greatness, obeying your truth, joining you in your work. We can, in your power and goodness leave behind the burdens of self-centeredness and pleasure-oriented living to plunge into the river of your goodness and grace, to be swept along in the current of your love. “The Lord reigns,” we are glad!
