The Remedy We Need

Encouragement for your daily walk with God

Yesterday was Sunday, what many Christ followers call the “Day of Worship.” I hope you did that; that is, I hope you worshiped the Lord in spirit and in truth. Worship works, and it has remarkable effects on worshipers. For one thing, worship lowers the chin of the proud, but raises the soul of the brokenhearted. It lifts the shoulders of the burdened and straightens the backbone of the weak. 

Worship rightly positions the worshiper. Oh how we need that! You’ve heard it before, I’m sure…we walk through a lot of life “bent out of shape.” We think too highly of ourselves or not highly enough. Ten-talent people swagger. They often think that God is lucky to have them on His team. Two-talent people struggle. They often conclude that God is through putting up with them. 

Both of these are wrong and can be repaired. The remedy is worship. 

You who fear the LORD, praise Him! Psalm 22:23
