In Every Season
In those moments where it’s “hard to find God”, it’s not because God has made Himself hard to see... it’s because I’m not looking in the right place or with the right perspective. I was listening to Hillsong’s Desert Song this morning and was really struck by the bridge:
That’s perspective right there. This is what I want my life to be about. No matter what happens, I find joy in knowing that I’m a child of God. My worship shouldn’t hinge on my attitude but solely on the fact that “You are still God” no matter what happens. I want to know God in a way that minimizes myself and my life’s struggles so that He can be glorified though it all... in EVERY season. I don’t just want to “be still and know” for the sake of making myself feel better but for the sake of His Kingdom. I want to know that eternity is worth sacrificing everything for because it is! THAT is our reason to sing. THAT is our reason to worship.
