What makes God great?

Is God great when He provides for our needs?

Is God great when He protects us?

Is God great when He heals us?

Is God great only when? What about those times when we ask - we beg - and He does not?

What do you suppose would happen in our hearts and lives if, instead of praising God for His provision and protection, we began simply praising God?

Lord, You are great. You are always with me and will never forsake me. You are the living water. Thank-you for Your unfailing love, for Your forgiveness of sins, for Your gift of salvation. Your name is holy and beautiful. I praise You, God, simply because You are...

When our praises are for who God is rather than what He does, our perspective shifts. Our joy is no longer tied into our circumstances, but is wrapped up in our relationship. This is the joy I long for - it's the kind of joy that will cause others to take notice of the fact that I have been with Jesus.

Great is the LORD and greatly to be praised in the city of our God, in the mountain of His holiness. ~Psalm 48:1 (KJV)
