Not to us, O LORD, but to you goes all the glory
for your unfailing love and faithfulness.
PSALM 115:1 NLT
I alone deserve all the praise.
Let My faithful love lead you to sincere and heartfelt gratitude.
In spite of your obstinate waywardness, I go on steadily loving you.
My persistent love will not let Me ever give up on you—be glad!
In time and in eternity—be thankful.
I alone do whatever I please.
Everyone and everything is ultimately accountable to Me.
Rebellion spells ruin—submission means salvation.
I am powerful over every plan—I am Sovereign over every strategy.
I alone am fit to take the universe’s throne.
I am totally, irrevocably responsible for everything—I am transcendent.
I alone am dynamic in power.
With My mouth, I give My Word from heaven for living on earth.
With My eyes, I am omniscient—seeing right through your pretense.
With My ears, I hear—I have time to listen when you need to talk.
With My crucified hands, I carry you when you cannot carry on.
With My nail-transfixed feet, I travel life’s road right beside you.
Infinite over idols; Creator, not created—I am trustworthy.
I alone deliver you by My protection.
If it were not for My help with life’s obstacle course, you would fall.
If it were not for My shield against Satan’s temptations, you would fail.
With My assistance, you do more than get by—you are triumphant.
I alone delight in your peace.
I am Caretaker of the universe—and I am taking good care of you.
I am Superintendent of stars—and I am shepherding you to heaven.
I am Creator of planets—and I am conducting you in the proper orbit.
Incredible as it seems to an impersonal world, I am thinking about you.
Live with eternal significance--transformed to the glory of God!
