“Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever. Let Israel say: ‘His love endures forever.’ Let the house of Aaron say: ‘His love endures forever.’ Let those who fear the LORD say: ‘His love endures forever.’” Psalm 118:1-4
Nothing can change your Love, O God, nothing can reduce it, alter it or stop it. You, Lord Jesus are love itself, you are Light itself, you are Truth itself. You are unchanging, enduring, eternal, lasting forever. You are the Rock: our Rock, our Stronghold, our Foundation, our Refuge, our Shelter, our King. In you is all that any human being could ever want; it is for you that we were made; in you all comes to fruition.
Glory be to you for how, even in the broken and twisted world, your image in us can be joined with your unmarred, unbroken, untainted Character, as you take us into your family. Praise you for your determination to bring us back to yourself, to redeem, recreate, reconstruct, reinstate the rebels of this world, making them your dearly loved children, decisively adopted, dynamically delighted in, deeply loved.
You, Lord God, King of Glory are marvelous in your ways, magnificent in your goodness, magnanimous in your grace, mighty in your power, multitudinous in your abilities, majestic in your patience.
We give you glory and honor; we bow before you, incredulous of your forgiveness; we rise up rejoicing in your grace; we stand before you thankful in obedience. May you be exalted, magnified, lifted on high and honored in our lives today—for your deserve it! Amen.
