Lord God, You are the Holy One; You are the Most High – Supreme and above all others. Your ways are not our ways, neither are Your thoughts our thoughts. Yours are higher and better. We come to You done with our own devices and schemes and lay all we are carrying at Your feet. We choose this moment to stop everything we are doing just to be in awe of You. We pause from all activity and other thoughts to breathe You in and breathe You out. The fragrance of Your presence when we paus to consider You and Your way is overwhelming! You are truly Emmanuel – GOD with us! You are omnipresent – everywhere at all times. You are omnniscient – the One who knows all. You are omnipotent – all powerful. You are Sovereign. Nothing exceeds You. All things are in Your hands and Your purposes cannot be thwarted; they are all good. You invite us to look at our lives from Your view – from here to eternity instead of worrying about from here until we need our bodies no more and You call us home to You forever. You promise to protect and provide so that our needs are met between now and then. This means we can concentrate on adoring You. Oh, Lord, how magnificent You are in all the earth – in all the universe! How blessed are we that You would love us even though we can never reach Your perfection. We are unworthy of Your mercy and grace, yet You sent Jesus and constantly are there ready to forgive our latest misstep, when we turn to You and ask forgiveness. Through Jesus You set us free from condemnation and You turn death, which is considered by those who don’t know to be the end, into a door which leads to blessed eternity with You. From age to age You gather us to Yourself. We have nothing to worry about; You have it all handled. We are given the gift of not having to cary life’s loads. You bless us by asking us to become as children and then You promise to lead us in the way we should go. God above all other beings and Creator of the universe, You promise You will speak to us and that if we seek, You will teach us to hear Your voice. How we delight in You! What blessed pause in our day to consider some of Your many attributes, exalt You and rejoice in Your way. We exhale a sigh of relief and declare, “Selah!” which can be translated as “pause and calmly think of that.” My Lord and My God, this day is Yours and we are Yours. Have Your way with each of us today for Your glory and renown. In Jesus’ name, Amen
