Gods’ wisdom sometimes just makes me have to sit back and say, WOW!
Worship is an act of reverence, adoration or homage. It’s an act of humility. It’s acknowledging that someone or something is greater than you or has power over you.
God is constantly showing his power and judgements throughout the earth. The problem is that many people don’t attribute those events to the One and only true and living God, the Lord God of Israel from Everlasting to Everlasting.
Remember how the children of Israel placed the blood of an innocent lamb on the doorposts of their homes? This was an act of obedience and worship. If they didn’t do it, their firstborn would not have been spared, and if an Egyptian family had done the same thing, maybe their firstborn would have escaped the death angel.
Even when unbelievers ‘shelter in place’ or ‘social distance’ themselves during a pandemic, hide in the basement from the furiosity of a intense tornado, flee inland during a catastrophic hurricane or typhoon, or escape to higher ground during a ravaging flood…they are reacting to and unintentionally acknowledging God’s power, sovereignty and judgment by their actions. Hiding, running, escaping are all acts of humility towards something that is greater and more powerful.
In a busy world that’s becoming ‘smaller’ through technology. In a world that has an ever increasing number of people who claim or live like there is not God. God, the Father of our Lord and Savior Yeshua the Messiah (Jesus the Messiah) knows how to make everyone slow down or stop…and acknowledge Him.
Philippians 2:10-11 (NKJV)
10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, 11 and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
