More · Praise


I ask the question in my waking hours… Who are You today… Lord…?

And He says… More…

An attribute I’ve never praised Him as before…

I wonder… How…? and… Is there Word…? to support this praise…?

Well… of course there is… because He said…

more… adjective1: greater… 2: additional, further…

—Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary (11th Ed.) 

He is more… greater… than all…

I know that the Lord is great,
that our Lord is greater than all gods.

He is the source of more joy…

You have put more joy in my heart than they have
when their grain and wine abound.
Psalm 4:67 ESV
… more blessing… more wondrous deeds… 
Blessed is the man who makes the Lord his trust,
who does not turn to the proud, to those who go astray after a lie!
You have multiplied, O Lord my God,
your wondrous deeds and your thoughts toward us;
none can compare to you!
I will proclaim and tell of them, yet they are more than can be told.
Psalm 40:4-5 ESV
He gives more… than we…
If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children,
how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things
to those who ask him!
Matthew 7:11 ESV
He can do more than we… with little… 
For there were about five thousand men. And he said to his disciples, “Have them sit down in groups of about fifty each.” And they did so… And taking the five loaves and two fish, he looked up to heaven and said a blessing over them. Then he broke the loaves and gave them to the disciples to set before the crowd. And they all ate and were satisfied. And what was left over was picked up, twelve baskets of broken pieces.
Luke 8:14-17 ESV
His Word… more refreshing… precious… sweet… 
The law of the Lord is perfect, reviving the soul;
the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple;
the precepts of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart;
the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes;
the fear of the Lord is clean, enduring forever;
the rules of the Lord are true, and righteous altogether.
More to be desired are they than gold, even much fine gold;
sweeter also than honey and drippings of the honeycomb.
Psalm 19:7-10 ESV
and… His grace abounds… more than our sin…
Now the law came in to increase the trespass,
but where sin increased, grace abounded all the more…
Romans 5:20 ESV
Yes… He is more…
and I hear Him calling me to more…
More trust…
in Him… 
who does more…
than we can ask…
or imagine…
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more
than all we ask or imagine, according to his power
that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church
and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations,
for ever and ever! Amen.
Ephesians 3:20
