Power and Grace
The Psalms invite us to praise, pray, and proclaim. Since God loves us, and we love him, we then yearn for his presence, take pleasure in knowing him, and delight in praising him. Prayers of adoration, confession, thanksgiving, and supplication are centered in God's power and grace. God's grace invites our gratitude and our cares and concerns are easily met by his power. Our praise of God is not complete until we proclaim to others all that he is and has done. Power and Grace echoes the theological truths taught in the Psalms. God is awesome, great, good, loving, righteous, present, and worthy of praise. He is our creator, king, refuge, deliverer, and shepherd. Theological truth is holistic; it informs our head, heart, and hands--our thoughts, passions, and actions. This book invites the reader to meditate, sing, and pray each one of these theological truths. In short, this book celebrates God and his presence with us.
