O THE GOODNESS OF GOD, WHO CAN UNDERSTAND IT? by Michael

Father of righteousness and truth, my beloved God, thank you for your lovingkindness and mercy. Thank you for the anointing and the favour of thy right hand. Thy name shall glory in all the earth because you have been good to me. I will lift up your name, and speak of thy righteousness. I shall not refrain from speaking of your judgments; for they are good. As it is written: The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether. More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb (Psalm 19:9 – 10). They give life to those who follow them. And they praise the name of the LORD for his goodness and mercy. O Father, how precious is thy name? In all the heavens and the earth thy name is magnified without limits. It is the name that brings joy to my soul. O my God, I think of you and thou knowest from whence my thoughts cometh. My thoughts cometh from the LORD which made heaven and earth. In thy power and strength I lift thee up. I beseech thee with thy beauty which you have given to me. You have fatten my heart with joy. Even the marrow of my bones rejoice with thy gladness. And I magnify thy excellencies. Let praises come to the LORD. Let a multitude of praises beseech him. All that liveth give glory to God. Give glory to his great and mighty name. Honour him and cloak his with majesty. O LORD, let my blessings fall upon thee. You have been so good to us, and because of it thy name shall glory. We will lift up the most High God. Power and strength are in thy right hand. O LORD of hosts, thy name shall glory. All the heavens and earth abide by thy name. There is none that is great but thee, O LORD. And who can compare to my God? I will lift up the great King of Zion. I will give glory to the most High God. His name is excellent before me, and a delight to my soul. The people profit by his hand. O children, seek the LORD; for he is good. He keepeth watch over you and by his mercy you abide. No one can sustain his own life. And all our lives are in the hand of God. Repent of your sins, O sinners, and give glory to God. For the LORD is holy and righteous. Let every man come to Christ; for we are not worthy by ourselves. Let us praise the LORD for his goodness and mercy. The LORD giveth salvation to the world that we my live. Come and taste and see, that the salvation of the LORD is good. Give glory to God for his goodness and mercy. Lift up his name that is great and mighty. O blessed Saviour, let thy name be blessed forever. From the lowest depth to the highest height, let thy name glory. Let us cleave to the LORD; for in him there is life. O Father, thank you for all that you do for us. Israel shall glory because of thy great mercy and lovingkindness. Blessed is the name of the LORD who sheweth mercy and lovingkindness to Israel. Blessed is the LORD that save a small remnant of Israel. As it is written according to the prophet Isaiah: Though the number of children of Israel be as the sand of the seas, a remnant shall be saved (Romans 9:27). For by his mercy he considered Israel that she may glory before him and not all be burden with the sorrows of her wickedness. He sheweth salvation in his mercy. Great mercies the LORD sheweth to Israel, that they may remember and praise his holy name. O the goodness of God, who can understand it? Let this whole world rise up and praise the LORD. For it is well to do so.
