O Lord, I will honor and praise your name, for you are my God. You do such wonderful things! You planned them long ago, and now you have accomplished them.
You do such wonderful things... He really does.
No other religion, no other god gets labeled like ours. People readily worship peace like the Buddhists, reverently abstain like the Hindus, or celebrate the “age of answers” like Scientologists pursue. But wonderfulness??? What religion promotes wonderful things? The One True and Living God does. What child who is given a choice between a practical birthday present like underwear or wonderful gift like motorized mini jeep to drive around in the back yard would choose the underwear? People really like wonderful. Everyone appreciates wonderful. We all need wonderful!
What has God done that is so wonderful?
His relationship with us is wonderful.
But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners. And since we have been made right in God’s sight by the blood of Christ, he will certainly save us from God’s condemnation. For since our friendship with God was restored by the death of his Son while we were still his enemies, we will certainly be saved through the life of his Son. So now we can rejoice in our wonderful new relationship with God because our Lord Jesus Christ has made us friends of God. (Romans 5:8-11)
His peace is wonderful.
Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:6-7)
God’s eternal plan for me is wonderful.
But let me reveal to you a wonderful secret. We will not all die, but we will all be transformed! (1 Corinthians 15:51)
His power is wonderful.
Now may our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and by his grace gave us eternal comfort and a wonderful hope, comfort you and strengthen you in every good thing you do and say. (2 Thessalonians 2:16)
His reward is wonderful.
So be truly glad. There is wonderful joy ahead, even though you must endure many trials for a little while. (1 Peter 1:6)
His kindness is wonderful.
Don’t you see how wonderfully kind, tolerant, and patient God is with you? Does this mean nothing to you? Can’t you see that his kindness is intended to turn you from your sin? (Romans 2:4)
There’s too many wonderful things about him to even list!
Jesus also did many other things. If they were all written down, I suppose the whole world could not contain the books that would be written. (John 21:25)
I thank you for how wonderful you are every single day. I desire your kindness, your reward, your power, your plan, your peace, and your relationship with me more than anything! You answers are so much better than the ones formulated by finite human imagination, your peace is authentic, and your grace is real and cancels my guilt and shame like no amount of self sacrifice could ever do. I love you so much. You ARE wonderfully wonderful! There is NO one else like you and nothing compares to what you do for me. I love you so much and praise you and pray in Jesus’ name, amen.
