The Living God

Therefore you are great, O Lord God; for there is no one like you, and there is no God besides you, according to all that we have heard with our ears.

2 Samuel 7:22
Praise to the living God, 
the God of love and light,
whose word brought forth the myriad suns
and set the worlds in flight;
whose infinite design, 
which we but dimly see,
pervades all nature, 
making all a cosmic unity.

Praise to the living God, 
from whom all things derive, 
whose Spirit formed upon this sphere
the first faint seeds of life;
who caused them to evolve,
unwitting, toward God's goal,
till humankind stood on the earth,
as living, thinking souls.

Praise to the living God,
who knows our joy and pain,
who shares with us our common life,
the sacred and profane.
God toils where'er we toil, 
in home and mart and mill;
and deep within the human heart
God leads us forward still.

When I saw him, I fell at his feet as though dead. But he placed his right hand on me, saying, “Do not be afraid; I am the first and the last, and the living one. I was dead, and see, I am alive forever and ever; and I have the keys of Death and of Hades.
 Revelation 1:17-18
Prayer after thinking about today's devotion:
Praise to the living God, 
around, within, above,
beyond the grasp of human mind,
but whom we know as love.
In these tumultuous days,
so full of hope and strife,
may we bear witness to the Way,
O Source and Goal of life.
