Beyond all words

Beyond all words,
Worship,
And wisdom;

Beyond all time,
Substance,
And space;

Beyond all expectation,
Understanding,
And imagination:

The Lord
Our God
Is God.

*******************************

All glory, majesty, power, and authority are his before all time, and in the present, and beyond all time! (Jude 1:25; NLT).

God is Spirit (John 4:24; NLT).

“My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the Lord. “And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine” (Isaiah 55:8; NLT).

How great is God – beyond our understanding! (Job 36:26; NIV).

You did awesome deeds beyond out highest expectations (Isaiah 64:3; NLT).

The Lord your God is God (Deuteronomy 7:9; NIV).

Prayer

Expectations

Keep on seeking, and you will find (Matthew 7:7; NLT).

Now seek the Lord your God with all your heart (1 Chronicles 22:19; NLT).

 

Lord,
As I begin to pray,
I have no expectations.

Today, you might seem near,
Or far away.

You might speak directly to me,
Or stay silent.

You might be clothed in darkness,
Or in light.

But my experience during prayer
Is not important,

As long as I keep seeking you
With all my heart.

Expectation

Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver (2 Corinthians 9:7; NIV).

“And if you do good only to those who do good to you, why should you get credit? Even sinners do that much!” (Luke 6:33; NLT).


Lord,
When I decide
To give time,
Attention,
Support,
Gifts,
Or money,
Please help me
To expect nothing
In return –

For then
I will never
Be disappointed!
