Chapter 29 (ESV)
13 And the Lord said:
“Because this people draw near with their mouth
and honor me with their lips,
while their hearts are far from me,
and their fear of me is a commandment taught by men,
14 therefore, behold, I will again
do wonderful things with this people,
with wonder upon wonder;
and the wisdom of their wise men shall perish,
and the discernment of their discerning men shall be hidden.”
15 Ah, you who hide deep from the Lord your counsel,
whose deeds are in the dark,
and who say, “Who sees us? Who knows us?”
16 You turn things upside down!
Shall the potter be regarded as the clay,
that the thing made should say of its maker,
“He did not make me”;
or the thing formed say of him who formed it,
“He has no understanding”?
- The words in verse 13 are power. Each of us has sat in church with our mind far from God or prayed a familiar prayer with our lips and not our heart. Familiarity is important, but it can also lead to boredom or, worse, contempt.
- Worship means to pay honour to God or to show great love and devotion. Has your worship routine grown stagnant? How can you refresh it and make it meaningful and truthful? You may begin by praying that each time you worship, you would experience and know God in a new way.
Stay with God for a little longer. Continue to converse with God and listen to what He wants to tell you. Then write down any thought and/or prayer in your spiritual journal.
