Sitting at Panera on this dreary, rainy day, I find myself thinking about how the One we worship is always here. Even when we can’t see Him, He’s still there.
Today, the clouds are thick, steadily moving across the sky, blocking the light that tries to break through. Today, the dark tries to control. Yet, I know behind those clouds the sun is constant, burning as always, not dampened by the darkness that prevails in our view. Unmoved by the heavy thickness that fogs our lenses.
When trials come, we may think the darkness is all that’s left… the clouds. But the One is just waiting there, hoping we will recognize that He’s our constant. He’s our peace. He is hoping we will stop worrying about the clouds and just trust Him. That’s the One we worship. The One who is constant. The One who waits for us to use our heavenly x-ray vision to look past the clouds… and praise Him. I’m thankful for this One who demands my worship.
I was made to worship Him.
But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light. – 1 Peter 2:9 (ESV)
