Prayers from the Heart: Meditating on God’s Goodness and Awesome Sovereignty

God is So Good

Precious Lord,

Today I stopped and just meditated on the fact that You are who You are…Jesus…the King of kings, the Lord of lords, Creator of all, who with His Word spoke everything into existence. You are so great and glorious that I can’t even really begin to comprehend it. And yet, You love me so deeply that You came in the flesh and died for me. Not only that, but you rose from the dead and You are alive! You are so good, so merciful, so kind, wanting none to perish but for all to come to repentance.

My precious Lord, forgive me, I should be in a perpetual state of awe because You are so awesome – and yet here I am, somehow I had taken my eyes off of just how magnificent You are – even the limited understanding I do have of your majesty and glory. At times I have even doubted You – how foolish of me!

You cannot lie, and You cannot fail. You’ve never left me, and never given me a single reason to doubt You, only millions of reasons to trust You completely.

You are sovereign, You are perfect. My God and my King, I love You. Help me to always treat You with the proper reverence.

Amen.

And we will receive from him whatever we ask because we obey Him
and do the things that please Him.
1 John 3:22

You can pray for anything, and if you have faith, you will receive it.
Matthew 21:22

And this is the confidence that we have in Him, that, if we ask any thing according to His will,
He heareth us: And if we know that He hear us, whatsoever we ask,
we know that we have the petitions that we desired of Him.
1 John 5:14-15

Yet you don’t have what you want because you don’t ask God for it.
And even when you ask, you don’t get it because your motives are all wrong—
you want only what will give you pleasure.
James 4:2b-3
