Take courage, my soul!
Do you remember those times (but how could you ever forget them!) when you led a great procession to the Temple on festival days, singing with joy, praising the Lord? Why then be downcast? Why be discouraged and sad? Hope in God!
I shall yet praise him again. Yes, I shall again praise him for his help. Psalm 42:4-5
We encounter a multitude of variances in life, some good and some not so good. Without realizing it, we can be unintentionally living broken and in pieces, basically coping into each day. Many things, over time have broken us causing much unrest and pain.
Today, consider bringing the unseen, covered and broken elements of your day to day life, to the altar and give them to God. We do not need more counselling, preaching or even deliverance, we need to see Jesus. We need to meet him at an altar, a humble altar built from the rubble of our brokeness and pain, our frustration and fear. It’s at this place that he comes in sovereign power to set the captives free.
The altar of worship is not a place, it’s a lifestyle! An altar built from the rubble of our brokenness, our frustration, our fear.
Will you build an altar today?
