Follow Suit?

I have one verse to share with you.

Nehemiah 1: And I said, “Please, O Lord God of heaven, the great and awesome God, who keeps the covenant and lovingkindness for those who love Him and keep His commandments,   source

Verse 5 is so full!

Please. He’s coming with humility and fully aware that it is by grace he gets to come before the LORD of Heaven.

Next, he realizes and proclaims that this GOD he is speaking to is great, awesome, that is there is NO god anywhere that is like Him or above Him.

Moreover, he knows this GOD enters covenants with people and that He keeps those covenants – He never breaks them. Additionally, He knows GOD is loving and kind and He demonstrates that loving-kindness to everyone who gives their love to Him, evidenced by keeping His commands.

This Old Testament accounting/description of GOD is just as true today and it was when Nehemiah prayed and penned these words.

Could it be we could follow suit?
