10,000 Reasons by Matt Redman

You’re rich in love
And You’re slow to anger
Your name is great
And Your heart is kind
For all Your goodness
I will keep on singing
Ten thousand reasons
For my heart to find

Bless the Lord oh my soul
Oh my soul

Observe: The heart of this lyric is from Exodus 34:6–8. Moses wished to see his gracious Lord who had exercised infinite patience with his stiff necked people. God responded that no one could see him directly and live. Consider what happened next.

 “The Lord passed before him and proclaimed, “The Lord, the Lord, a God merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness, keeping steadfast love for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, but who will by no means clear the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children and the children’s children, to the third and the fourth generation.” And Moses quickly bowed his head toward the earth and worshiped.

Our God is gracious, holy, just, and merciful. Where else can we put our trust with assurance and find comfort for our anxiety? Only in Him!!

Bless the Lord, O my soul! O Lord my God, you are very great! You are clothed with splendor and majesty,” (Psalm 104:1)
