I Cannot Tell It All

S. O. A. P.

Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!


Psalm 71:15

My mouth will tell of your righteous deeds, of your saving acts all day long—though I know not how to relate them all.


King David, now a seasoned veteran of war, leadership, and faithful service unto his God, confesses to his Lord in prayer that all day long he will continually talk about, and relate to others, and praise His great God. Yet there is so much to say that the King states in exasperation, “I Cannot Tell It All!”


Have you ever been so in love with Jesus, and so utterly filled with gratefulness for the many blessings and kindnesses poured out from Him to you, that the words flow in praise, but finally there is a sense in you that simply says, “I Cannot Tell It All”? I can tell you that I have experienced that sense over and over again throughout my life. Sometimes the blessings and the graciousness of the Father seem to come raining down onto me like a torrential flood. I’m overwhelmed by His glories that He so mercifully bestows on this unworthy servant that I finally say, thank You for life, breath, the day, the light, the family, the friends, the trials, the impossibilities, the betrayals, the second chances—and there are so many second chances, the hope, the next, there’s no more space. So I’ll have to say, “I Cannot Tell It All!”


Dear Jesus,

This AM, I’ll pick up where I left off at the end of my post because this space is not large enough for me to praise You enough. I’m overwhelmed again today by Your great love for me. I must end this public prayer in order to get back with You in private. “I Cannot Tell It All” right here! Amen
