“You alone are the LORD. You made the heavens, even the highest heavens, and all their starry host, the earth and all that is on it, the seas and all that is in them. You give life to everything, and the multitudes of heaven worship you.” (Nehemiah 9:6 NIV11-GKE)
You give life. In you, life is found. You said that everything that has breath praise the Lord!
I know this to be true, I know this to be real, I know this to be my strength and comfort.
I am not alone; I am part of everything you created, and I am yours.
You alone can create beauty, and you alone can sustain it.
When your Son came, he came to give us life in abundance. He came to restore us from the horror of rebellion into the beauty of salvation.
This life in you does not end in death, and it carries on. The life in Christ is eternal; therefore, I have nothing to fear, and I have every reason to worship you!
Just like the angels who sang a sacred song to the shepherds, a song of praise, a song of worship!
