Staggering


Take a look at Psalm 95. It is quite amazing. God created the highest high and the lowest low. He created the sea and dry land. There is no other god besides Him and there is no greater power. His mighty works are vast beyond measure. Just the fact that He is demands our worship, our thanksgiving, and our trust. He is our God, our Maker. Yet look at what He says about the generation of Israel who were delivered from the bondage of Egypt. “For forty years I loathed that generation,     And said they are a people who err in their heart,     And they do not know My ways.” He “loathed” them. Why? Because they saw His mighty acts, His power, His authority. Yet they feared, worried, complained, and refused to trust Him. Therefore, they were forbidden from God’s rest. The gist: God shows up. He shows off. This deserves unwavering trust, worship, and obedience. What did He get from the people? “EHhhh, not impressed. We still don’t trust ya.” WOW…. It is not hard for me to believe that He would loath them.  

What is my response to God? Read Psalm 95 again with me. Let’s pay close attention to what our response to Him should be. And then we must do likewise.
