Blessed are those who live in your house! They are ever praising you! (Psa. 84:4)When you paused a moment in this mornings outdoors, you may have sensed motion all around you. A breeze tousled your hair while its parent moved the fluffy cloud across the blue. Fresh spring sprang steadily, joyfully from the soil, and soft leaves popped out of new twigs. Buds burst into blossoms, filling the air with fresh fragrance. Creative motion. God, still at work. Then a Mockingbird filled the morning silence with a song, and a treetop fluttered alive with feathery music. Ongoing creation to a backdrop of praise.
When you entered His presence in worship today, God was creating then, too. His Word keeps thought and motive and matter shaped and in working order. When we worship, He releases His creative power. Hearts change. Lives change. New horizons beckon.
When you paused a moment in midst of worship, as preaching and praise flooded the sanctuary, you may have sensed the motion around you. Did you sense that motion also within you? God working. Creating. Shaping awareness of His presence and of His nature. Shaping the thoughts and intents of hearts. Shaping tomorrows behavior, thus tomorrows relationships, and tomorrows skyline. Even re-routing the path of history. Still creating. Still to the backdrop of praise. While the morning stars sing together and the angels shout for joy.
