Thought for the Lord’s Day

Posted on · Posted in Worship

Only in God is my soul at rest.


The Christian has but one place of safety.  One place of strength. One place of protection. These truths must not be forgotten in worship.  God does not share his glory with another.  


In this sense, our worship must never be casual. We can be laid back with each other. Fear of man is never a good thing. But a holy, reverent fear of the Lord is always the path of blessing.


Whether there is an earthquake or a snow storm God alone is our foundation. When life hurts God is our fortress. Nothing can shake us loose from his hand. 


Praise is always the response that will align our heart with the purposes of God.



For God alone my soul waits in silence;
    from him comes my salvation.


He alone is my rock and my salvation,
    my fortress; I shall not be greatly shaken.

Psalm 62:1-2
