While reading Nehemiah today, the Lord reminded me of his steadfast spirit. The scripture below is the beginning of a beatiful prayer from Nehemiah 9. I encourage you to read Nehemiah 9:5-34, as it is a great review of the Lord’s amazing patience and love for the Israelites. How thankful I am to have God’s word as a reminder that he continues to pursue me with love and patience just as He did the Israelites.
“Stand up and praise the Lord your God, who is from everlasting to everlasting.Blessed be your glorious name, and may it be exalted above all blessing and praise. 6 You alone are the Lord. You made the heavens, even the highest heavens, and all their starry host, the earth and all that is on it, the seas and all that is in them. You give life to everything, and the multitudes of heaven worship you.”
