Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Reverently Adore God, Part 2

Adoration 1.3 | NASB

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

The heavens are telling of Your glory, O God, and their expanse is declaring the work of Your hands; Psalm 19:1(NASB) and Your eternal power and divine nature are clearly seen and understood through what has been made. Romans 1:19-20(NASB) So that they are fools without excuse who say, “There is no God”; Psalm 14:1(NASB) for surely there is a reward for the righteous; surely there is a God who judges on earth, Psalm 58:11(NASB) and in heaven too!

I therefore come to You believing that You are and that You are the powerful and bountiful rewarder of those who seek You. Hebrews 11:6(NASB)

Yet I must own His nature to be incomprehensible.

I cannot discover the depths of God; I cannot discover the limits of the Almighty. Job 11:7(NASB)

Great is the LORD, and highly to be praised, and His greatness is unsearchable. Psalm 145:3(NASB)

Who can speak of the mighty deeds of the LORD? Or can show forth all His praise? Psalm 106:2(NASB)

And His perfections to be matchless and without compare.

Who is like You, majestic in holiness, awesome in praises, working wonders? Exodus 15:11(NASB)

Who in the skies is comparable to the LORD? Who among the sons of the mighty is like the LORD? Psalm 89:6(NASB) O LORD God of hosts, who is like You, O mighty LORD? Your faithfulness also surrounds You. Psalm 89:8(NASB)

There is no one like You among the gods, O Lord, nor are there any works like Yours. Psalm 86:8(NASB) For You are great and do wondrous deeds; You alone are God. Psalm 86:10(NASB)

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

And that He is infinitely above us and all other beings.

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

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(NASB)

All the nations before You are like a drop from the bucket, or a speck of dust on the scales; and You lift up the islands like fine dust; Isaiah 40:15(NASB) they are as nothing, and are regarded by You as less than nothing and meaningless. Isaiah 40:17(NASB)
