Work, Worry, Worship,

It is possible for our lives to be all work and worry. Wall to wall work to give us the money to worry about what we can’t afford. It can be vicious circle. We work to eat, to work, to eat and so on. Is this what God has planned for us? If we add the third ‘W’ we will take our eyes off ourselves and look up to God. It is said ‘My God will supply all your need.’

We don’t need to worry. God has everything in His plan. ‘He will not let our foot be moved.’ Worship is the essential ingredient. We are programmed to worship, it will lead us up instead of downwards. It is worship that leaves no place for worry. We can work and worship and leave worry behind.

Gospel Not Chained

At the present time we are not able to go into churches to hold our services. It is sad that we cannot meet each other, but we can meet God wherever we are. Our God is not chained to a building. Often it is easier to worship Him in the open spaces.

God is in our homes and our hearts. We don’t need to look for Him, He is right here and there and everywhere. All that has stopped is corporate worship, though we still worship on-line. God is not limited. If I go the far side of the earth He is there. I cannot hide from Him in the depths or on the mountain.

Open Churches

It is possible to praise and pray to God whether at home alone or with hundreds of other people. God is not restricted to buildings. But at the present time churches are closed for corporate worship. This is a loss.

There is a move to open churches during this lockdown for communal worship. Maybe we could write or contact our local Members of Parliament to urge for the opening of churches. If we don’t ask, we won’t get. Every contact is counted. This is something we can all do.
