While it is important to gather together to worship our Almighty Creator, we must also remember not to limit our worship to one place or one time.
Reference: v.48a "However, the Most High does not live in houses made by men."
Explore: A couple of weeks ago I was walking along a tree lined street. At the very moment I walked past a particular tree, one of it's leaves was released and it drifted down in front of me. It was like a sacred moment for me. Just at the time I walked past, this leaf floated just in front of me. I couldn't help but feel invited into a special moment. I could not have created that moment, or even forseen it happening, it was just a matter of embracing it as it came along.
Often we forget to embrace our worship of God is special daily moments. We put all our worship eggs into the Sunday service basket and forget the importance of worshipping God every single day.
Application: In the same way, God is not limited by our worship or by our worship places. He can move in any way He pleases, and often does. While it is important to gather together to worship our Almighty Creator, we must also remember not to limit our worship to one place or one time. We can give God worship for someone's health being restored, for a helpful conversation at work, for the love of a family member, and even for a special moment when a leaf falls in front of you.
Prayer: Lord, thank you for being present in our everyday. May we acknowledge You in all the places you inhabit. Amen.
