Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Reverently Adore God, Part 2

Adoration 1.3 | ESV

I must acknowledge his Being to be unquestionable and past dispute.

The heavens declare your glory, O God, and the sky above proclaims your handiwork. Psalm 19:1(ESV) Your eternal power and divine nature have been clearly perceived in the things that have been made, Romans 1:19-20(ESV) so that they are fools without excuse who say, “There is no God.” Psalm 14:1(ESV) For surely there is a reward for the righteous; surely there is a God who judges on earth, Psalm 58:11(ESV) and in heaven too.

I therefore draw near to you believing that you exist and that you powerfully and bountifully reward those who diligently seek you. Hebrews 11:6(ESV)

Yet I must own his nature to be incomprehensible.

I cannot find out the deep things of God; I cannot find out the limit of the Almighty. Job 11:7(ESV)

Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised, and his greatness is unsearchable. Psalm 145:3(ESV)

Who can utter the mighty deeds of the LORD, or declare all his praise? Psalm 106:2(ESV)

And his perfections to be matchless and without compare.

Who is a God like you, O LORD, majestic in holiness, awesome in glorious deeds, doing wonders? Exodus 15:11(ESV)

Who in the skies can be compared to the LORD? Who among the heavenly beings is like the LORD? Psalm 89:6(ESV) O LORD God of hosts, who is mighty as you are with your faithfulness all around you? Psalm 89:8(ESV)

There is none like you among the gods, O Lord, nor are there any works like yours. Psalm 86:8(ESV) For you are great and do wondrous things; you alone are God. Psalm 86:10(ESV)

No creature has an arm like God, or can thunder with a voice like his. Job 40:9(ESV)

And that he is infinitely above me and all other beings.

You are God and not man; you do not have eyes of flesh, nor do you see as man sees. Your days are not as the days of man, nor your years as a man’s years. Job 10:4-5(ESV)

As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are your thoughts higher than my thoughts and your ways than my ways. Isaiah 55:9(ESV)

All nations before you are like a drop from a bucket, or the dust on the scales; and you take up the coastlands like fine dust; Isaiah 40:15(ESV) they are as nothing, and are accounted by you as less than nothing and emptiness. Isaiah 40:17(ESV)
