Prayer: OUR GREAT GOD The Bible is full of references to God that tell of His attributes. One word that describes God perfectly is the word ‘great.’ How fitting to speak of your God as great -your God Who is the creator of the universe. Stand in awe at how your great God formed the universe in all its expanse, and also how He made every microscopic detail perfect. He is great and awesome and marvelous. He is the great Holy One of Israel. He is the great King, the great Mighty God, the great High Priest, and the great Shepherd. The LORD is great and greatly to be praised. 1 Chronicles 16:25 You can never come up with enough special words to describe your great God. ‘Great’ reflects the very being of God Almighty, His essence. Great is descriptive of His power, His love, His presence, His glory, and His faithfulness. Great also describes what God does. God has great power, great mercy, and His great plan of salvation for you. He performs great wonders, and He has great kindness. In your quiet time, in your prayer time, come before His presence and speak of how great God is to you, personally. You have the privilege of calling Him, Father. Reflect on His great mercy in saving you. Reflect on his great sacrifice to cover all of your sins. From the Lord comes great counsel and guidance. . Rejoice in how He has redeemed you and adopted you and given you a clean, pure life through Jesus. Pause to think of how your great God has planned for you to have life with Him forever. Remember His miracles and His majesty, and His grace. Let your heart overflow in praise and thanksgiving. For the LORD your God is God of gods and Lord of lords the great God, mighty and awesome. Deuteronomy 10:17 For the LORD Most High is awesome, He is a great King over all the earth. Psalm 47:2 Join in the chorus of all the redeemed, and all the host of heaven, to praise the name of your great God. Joyfully, Joyce
