Plunking down worship? I have a favorite chair in the Great Room here at Beech Springs. It’s the first place I go after a long day; a place of reclining, swiveling and dog-abiding comfort. Perhaps the best method of describing the feeling I get when occupying that chair is “plunking.” I plunk myself down, settle in and inhabit my chair. It’s a very special place.
Think about it. That chair is the perfect place to camp, rest and restore, and find a moment of peace that’s God-sent. Like the patriarchs of old, a place of comfort that gives us a beautiful word picture of the “peace of God that passes all understanding.”
God’s Word tells us: “Isaac built an altar there and called on the name of the Lord. There he pitched his tent, and there his servants dug a well” (Genesis 26:25).
Don’t miss those “plunk-down” moments in life when God is calling you to pitch your tent, refresh yourself and worship in spirit with Him. These are moments when you and I dwell with God in worshipful peace. Worship the One who made the moment possible. Abide for a time as the tent of His grace covers you. Life really doesn’t get better than that.
“Heavenly Father, we often take moments of peace for granted, not recognizing these as both gifts and opportunities You give us to give You glory for the moment. Forgive us and keep them coming. In Jesus name, 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
