“How great you are, O Sovereign Lord! There is no one like you. We have never even heard of another God like you!” – 2 Samuel 7:22.

Have you ever just been dumbfounded by the greatness of God? Have you ever looked back at what God has done in your life and couldn’t help yourself from praising God for everything that went into and came out of this adventure? Me too.

Never in my wildest dreams could I have imagined God’s love, faithfulness and grace. What I have seen, heard, did, and received is nothing short of amazing. It gives me goosebumps when I think about it and I want to find a better way to praise and worship our incredible God. 

And why not? We have all been bought with a price. God saved an unworthy people by giving His only Son. And the Son of God dying on the cross becomes even more incredible  if we consider the sin in our life, the sin in the church, and the sin in the world. We are unworthy of His incredible love. God is worthy to be praised.

In addition to what He has done, we should also praise Him for who He is. He is the Alpha and Omega, the first and last, beginning and the end. He is the lion and the lamb.  He created all, yet He humbled himself to be clothed in human form. He is the king of all, yet became a servant for our sake. God is worthy to be praised.

God is a mighty God. Nothing is impossible with Him. He can move mountains, make the sun stand still, and heal the sick. In Joshua chapter 4, we read how God completed the mighty task of bringing the Israelites into the Promised Land. God led the Israelites out of slavery and into freedom just as He had promised. Because of the magnitude of what He did, God did not want the Israelites to ever forget what He had done for them. God wanted the Israelites to forever remember the miracle He performed for them and what a mighty and powerful God He is. God is worthy to be praised.

Think back for a moment. God has done some amazing things in your life. He may have healed a relationship or healed your body, He may have saved you from an addiction or gave you the spouse you always prayed for. Take time today to remember the mighty things God has done for you. Praise Him and commit to Him that you will never forget the amazing things He has done for you. 

Thank you Jesus for blessing us with immeasurably more that we could have ever dreamed of on this adventure.  You are worthy of our praise.
