Grace and peace to you.
We at Calvary Chapel of LaGrange invite you to join us as we seek to grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. 2 Peter 3:18
It is our desire to follow the example given to us by the early church in Acts 2:4,
"And they continued steadfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers."
Join us as we study the whole Word of God, verse-by-verse, chapter-by-chapter, book-by-book and as we worship the Lord in spirit and truth.
Devotion For Today Tuesday 9/2/14
"Let all the earth fear the LORD; let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of Him." PSALM 33:8
Our God is so much more than we will ever be able to comprehend. He created all things and sustains all things. He causes all things to work together; the sun to be at exactly the right distance from the earth, gravity within the earth, weather patterns, seasons, the air we breath. He gives us increasing knowledge of all these things and more. We ought to be able to see, seek to know, and hope to grow closer to God as His creation reveals His handiwork and care for us. We ought to stand in awe of Him. But the cares of this world can overwhelm our days. I used to spend time laying in the grass, looking up just to watch clouds drift by in a blue sky. I used to sit and sometimes sleep outside just to look up and be amazed on starry nights. How often I move through a day without ever even looking up now. My eyes are fixed on a schedule. Once I leave my front door my day becomes a series of appointments and tasks. Then God reminds me with a sunrise or sunset in my windshield that He is an artist and the awe returns. Maybe we need to slow down. Maybe its time to stand rather than run around. And as we stand with Him, as we stand for Him, we will stand together in awe of the One who created us and loves us. Maybe we will be amazed at how many masterpieces we are rushing past every day. Maybe we will realize that the Artist has been waiting for us to spend time together Him as just soak in the painting He has created just to create the awe in us we once had as children laying under the clouds, the stars, and the sunsets. Let all the earth fear the LORD; let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of Him, in Jesus' name. Amen.
The LORD bless you and keep you; the LORD make His face shine upon you, and be gracious to you; the LORD lift up His Countenance upon you, and give you peace." Numbers 6:24-26
