God is big

Have you ever read Psalm 86? Particularly verses 8-13. If not take a moment and read those now.

8 Among the gods there is none like you, O Lord;
no deeds can compare with yours.

9 All the nations you have made
will come and worship before you, O Lord;
they will bring glory to your name.

10 For you are great and do marvelous deeds;
you alone are God.

11 Teach me your way, O LORD,
and I will walk in your truth;
give me an undivided heart,
that I may fear your name.

12 I will praise you, O Lord my God, with all my heart;
I will glorify your name forever.

13 For great is your love toward me;
you have delivered me from the depths of the grave.

I had never read these verses until a couple months ago. Well, I probably had read them, but not in the way I did this time. This is such a worshipful passage. I am suprised that it as not been turned into a song (maybe it has and I just have not heard it yet).

There is none like our great God. He has made the nations and the promise is that they WILL come and worship and glorify His name. Lord teach us, teach us, teach us. Lord break us and mold us and show us your way. You alone are God. Help us walk in your truth with an undivided heart. I will praise you forever Lord. You have saved me!

What is your response to these verses?
