Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised, and his greatness is unsearchable.—Psalm 145:3
The Lord is described as great. To be great is to have extensive boundaries and vast territory. This is how the psalmist describes God. And because this is his descriptor, he deserves great praise from his subjects—that's you and me. But then at the end, the psalmist throws in one additional thought. It's a thought, not an afterthought, about the measure of this greatness, and he attributes it to his attributes—they have unsearchable greatness. They have no boundary, and the territory has no end. So who and what do we praise? A great God, whose greatness is so great that he has no end.
ASK THIS: What is great about God that elicits praise from you?
DO THIS: Tell God that he is great in your own way.
PRAY THIS: God, you are great to me for this reason _________________
