I went to a worship service last night at Grove City College. I loved every minute of it. The atmosphere of praise was precious, and I found myself changed, transported from my world of pressure, work, time constraints, worries to a place where all I saw was my Lord and His beauty. As I was standing there worshipping Him, I wished I could bottle up the sense of awe I felt, the joy flooding through my being… Just bottle it up and take it home to forever have it with me–or even better, within me.
But then I remembered truth: He Himself IS with me every second of every day. HE HIMSELF is my awe, my joy, my strength. And He never wants me to live off of yesterday’s bread. His mercies are new every morning.
“But Lord, that kind of worship is not new every morning, is it?”
“Of course it is, My Child. For I live within the praises of my people.”
Well, that settled me. He dwells within the praises of His people–start worshipping, people of God!
