This morning when I woke up I was drawn to verse two in Psalm 104. Verses 1-2 says, “Bless the Lord, O my soul! O Lord my God, You are very great: You are clothed with honor and majesty, who cover Yourself with light as with a garment…”
Here is another that goes with them. Psalm 145:3 says, “Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised; and His greatness is unsearchable.”
In the midst of our chaos, let us keep our focus on the Lord’s greatness. Jeremiah questioned the Lord as to why the wicked prospered. God’s answer is relevant to us today.
Jeremiah 12:5 says, “If you have run with the footmen, and they have wearied you, then how can you contend with horses? And if in the land of peace, in which you trusted, they wearied you, then how will you do in the floodplain of the Jordan?”
Verse 6 says, “For even your brothers…have dealt treacherously with you; yes, they have called a multitude after you. Do not believe them, even though they speak smooth words to you.”
Jeremiah was rebuked for his impatience. Patience is a character quality that is developed through our trials. Impatience is a fleshly reaction when something doesn’t go as we planned it.
Psalm 61 was written by David. He cried out to the Lord. He was overwhelmed, and asked the Lord to lead him to higher ground. The way we raise our thoughts from our overwhelming, patience trying circumstances is through worship.
Worship is a lifestyle. It is a high watermark of a true follower of Jesus. There will never be a circumstance that would keep us from worshiping in our heart. Worship is a heart response when we think back to the cross.
Worship is drinking at the well of our salvation. Isaiah 12:2-3 says, “Behold, God is my salvation, I will trust in Him and not be afraid; for Yah, the Lord, is my strength and song; He also has become my salvation. Therefore with joy you will draw water from the wells of salvation.” Let our lives reflect a heart of worship because He is worthy.
