…“…we delight to praise what we enjoy because the praise not merely expresses but completes the enjoyment;…Therefore, the reason God seeks our praise is not because He won’t be complete until He gets it. He is seeking our praise because we won’t be complete until we give it. This is not arrogance. It is love” John Piper (ref#124, p161-162).
DRAWING WATER FROM THE WELLS OF SALVATION
Your name alone is the LORD (Ps 83:18).
You forever remain the same—
Your years have no end (Ps 102:27).
You, LORD, are the everlasting GOD—
Creator of the ends of the earth.
You do not faint or grow weary;
You’re never fatigued or exhausted (Isa 40:28).
There is no searching Your understanding;
You must be infinitely wise.
Your boundless skill is proved
by the works of Your hands (ref#16, [Isa 40:28]).
You are righteous in all Your ways,
Everything You do is true.
Kind, You are, in all Your works,
Yes, Your trademark is love (Ps 145:17).
With joy I will draw water
from the wells of Your salvation—
from those ever-flowing fountains
from You, the great Giver (Isa 12:3).
