“All people will fear; they will proclaim the works of God and ponder the things he has done.” Psalm 64:9.
You have no use for God? You will someday, according to today’s verse.
God has done amazing things……”The heavens declare…”
I must follow the pattern of the verse; proclaim and ponder.
It could be like saying “uncle,” where you can change your mind later. “Pondering” instead involves long term.
How can I ever lose my awareness of His greatness? For me, it happens when my distractions overpower me.
I can go through many waking hours out-of-touch with Him. I am drifting along separated from Him. Who am I letting guide me? The Evil One!
Satan doesn’t always hit me with a pitchfork. He is better known (to me) as a whisperer. He encourages me to trust myself. “You can do this.” “You can figure this out.” And at times I do, and that just leads to more separation from the God I love.
A love-relationship is ongoing. I will not be easily distracted by other things when I am in love. My concentration will be on the object of my affections. Is that the way I am with God? Not nearly!
