Thoughts on Today's Verse...
That's one of the names for God. He is everything we can imagine that is good, right, holy, and much more! So, the Old Testament is full of different names for God. It's because God is greater than we can imagine. He can do more than we can dream of asking. He is much more than our words can declare. Even our most extraordinary moments of praise are understatements of God's glory. So we join the song of Psalm 106 and reverently declare:
"Who can proclaim the mighty acts of the Lord or fully declare his praise?"
The answer is simple: No one! That, however, does not stop us from giving thanks to our Lord and God, whose greatness we cannot fathom and whose love endures forever!
El Shaddai, the One True and Almighty God, you are worthy of all glory, honor, and praise! Thank you for hearing my feeble attempts at praising you. Thank you for being pleased and blessed with my expressions of love and my efforts to thank you, even though they fall far short of what you deserve. You are too marvelous for my words and beyond my mind's comprehension. I gladly rest my hope and my future in you! In Jesus' name, I offer you my praise. Amen.
