Heartfelt? Today churches have replaced the rock rings and stone pillars that used to be places of worship in pagan times. Some are located on prominent area hills; others at convenient crossroads. The question is, has “place worship” really gone away?
Think about it. It’s hard to focus on God sometimes, isn’t it. He’s seems so hard to find in a culture full of so many good and desirable things. The fact is, God isn’t hiding; he never was. And like rock rings, steeples don’t necessarily point the way.
God’s Word tells us: “For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.” (Romans 1:20).
God has revealed Himself to you and I in power and in Godhead. He is “clearly seen” if you’re looking for him or, for that matter, if you aren’t hiding behind an idol or two, unable to see him any more. We have “no excuse.” Don’t look for God where he isn’t. He dwells in your heart. Seek him there in his holy presence.
“I pray today in Jesus name that along with the “place worship” God does call us to do, we realize that real place worship begins and ends in our hearts. Let us seek Him there, always, Amen!”
“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own” (Matthew 6:34) www.thispassingday.com
