Sometimes I’m so concerned with “casting my cares upon the Lord” (1 Peter 5:7) and praying for others that I forget the joy and wonder of praising God. This morning, I looked up again a list of God’s divine attributes, and I talked to Him and praised Him for who He is. It felt like a marvelous time of lifting my eyes above my circumstances and above the concerns of our planet to the eternal.
You can find many websites that list God’s attributes, but the one I enjoyed this morning that helped direct my thoughts best was this: “15 Amazing Attributes of God: What They Mean and Why They Matter” from Bible Study Tools.
I thought about God as self-existent, omnipotent, omnipresent, loving, unchanging, self-sufficient, omniscient, wise, faithful, good, holy, merciful, just, and infinitely beautiful. When I praise God, nothing else seems more important or more worthwhile. Perhaps it’s because our hearts are made to worship Him.
