31 Days of Following Jesus – Day4



Learning to Sit at His Feet

31 Days of Following Jesus

October 4, 2017

Who Are You Following?

Psalm 46 tells us that “God is our Refuge and Strength, a very present help in trouble.” Maybe you needed to hear that today? The psalm encourages us to “behold the works of the Lord”! When was the last time you really took some time to behold the works of the Lord? Beholding His works causes us to view our works differently. Seeing His creation compared to our creation–wow, what a difference! Take time right now to behold–consider–the works of the Lord. He is an awesome God!

We can see why Psalm 46 says to “cease striving (let go and relax/be still)” and know that He is God! He will be exalted in the nations, He will be exalted in the earth! Oh and by the way, the God of angel armies is on our side! The God of Israel is our stronghold!

Take some time now to worship Him for being a refuge and strength to you. Worship Him for being the God of angel armies, who is with you and is your stronghold! He is worthy of following every single day of our lives.
