"Whatever cost, whatever joy or sorrow I will worship still because of who You are" -Lyrics from Great is the Lord by Starfield

Who is the Lord?
Just a few I come up with...
Creator, Artist of the Universe, Author of life and every good thing, Omniscient God, Stronghold, Fortress, My Helper, My Savior, My Redeemer, My Lord, My Maker, My Lover, My Master, My Friend , Sovereign, Holy, King of Peace and Righteousness

"For by him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together." Colossians 1:16-17

God would be worthy of my devotion, my praise and my entire life, even if He chose not to save me from hell, simply because of who He is.

God's nature is that He is also loving and merciful, so He wouldn't leave me without a way to Him, but that does not change the fact that He would still be worthy! and much more worthy because He is also loving and merciful!

"What is man that you are mindful of him, the son of man that you care for him?" Psalm 8:4

Think about the things the Lord has done

"The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
Day after day they pour forth speech;
night after night they display knowledge.
There is no speech or language
where their voice is not heard."
Psalm 19:1-3

The intricate workings of this world are His designs, His art, an expression of who He is

He is above all things, yet He chooses each person and fashions them exactly the way He wants them. His nature demands our praise, but His nature also quietly, compassionately, draws us near. His nature requires our devotion, but His nature also draws us gently to a place on our knees where we understand His devotion to us. His nature commands perfection, but His nature is so merciful and loving, that He made a way for us to be perfect!

We are not worthy to even be near Him, and yet He loves us dearly, truly and deeply. He desires our hearts, and we belong to Him.
