40

Lent is a period of 40 days of preparation before Easter - it  is actually 47 days if you include every Sunday until Easter, but these days are considered to be Sabbath days. Over the course of the next 6 weeks I have chosen to reflect on some Psalms, Proverbs and words from Ecclesiastes. I hope and pray that these words will help all of us journey towards the Blessing of the Resurrection.

A great place to start today is at Psalm 40. As I was reading through it again I was struck by the power in verse 5.

Psalm 40:5 (Message)
The world’s a huge stockpile of God-wonders and God-thoughts.
Nothing and no one comes close to you!
I start talking about you, telling what I know, and quickly run out of words.
Neither numbers nor words account for you.


Did you notice that? David was lost for words - he ran out of words to describe how amazing God is. Have you ever encountered that before? When words, numbers, letters are all totally inadequate to describe our Lord.

Psalm 40:5Many, Lord my God, are the wonders you have done,
the things you planned for us. None can compare with you;
were I to speak and tell of your deeds, they would be too many to declare.

Prayer: Lord, I am lost in the wonder of who You are. Teach me to find the right words to express my praise and worship of You. None can compare with you, Jesus.
