Thought for the Lord’s Day

Posted on · Posted in Worldview, Worship


Suppose things were very much different. Suppose there was no electricity, no running water in your home, no gas for your car, no food in the grocery store. Suppose all this were true and more. Spend a little time thinking through these scenarios. They are all plausible outcomes given the right circumstances. But even if all of this happened, God would still be God. We would have to acknowledge that whatever happened was necessary to bring honor and glory to God.

Suppose all of this was true. Would your worship be any different?

 But as for me, the nearness of God is my good;

I have made the Lord [ad]God my refuge,

That I may tell of all Your works.

Psalm 73:28
