Nehemiah 1:5-6 NIV
[5] Then I said: “Lord, the God of heaven, the great and awesome God, who keeps his covenant of love with those who love him and keep his commandments,

Nehemiah turns to the one source of hope and strength and remembers what God is like – great and awesome. He has not changed – today we can come before him and remember his love and compassion for us.

Lord, I come before Your throne of grace
I find rest in Your presence
And fullness of joy
In worship and wonder
I behold Your face
Singing, “what a faithful God have I”
