Safe Place with Ruth Graham

A Worship-worthy God

I am reading a marvelous book – it is slow going because it is so rich and needs my full attention: The Divine Conspiracy by Dallas Willard (HarperSanFrancisco, 1998).

In it he quotes Adam Clarke’s statement about God: “the eternal, independent, and self-existent Being; the Being whose purposes and actions spring from himself, without foreign motive or influence; he who is absolute in dominion; the most pure, the most simple, the most spiritual of all essences; infinitely perfect; and eternally self-sufficient, needing nothing that he has made; illimitable in his immensity, inconceivable in his mode of existence, and indescribable in his essence; known fully only by himself, because an infinite mind can only be fully comprehended by itself. In a word, a Being, who from his infinite wisdom, cannot err or be deceived, and from his infinite goodness, can do nothing but what is eternally just, and right, and kind.”

And that Being loves you and me; wants a personal, intimate relationship with us so much so that He sent his Son to die for us so that we might enter into such a wonderful, daily relationship with him.

Take a moment today to worship him.

    In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

    We thank you, our heavenly Father, through Jesus Christ, Your dear Son, that You have kept us this night from all harm and danger; and we pray that You would keep us this day also from sin and every evil, that all our doings and life may please You. For into Your hands we commend ourselves, our bodies and souls, and all things. Let Your holy angel be with us, that the evil foe may have no power over us. Amen.

  • Been there

    I was raised Christian. Become one at age five. Tried to live for the Lord. Son committed suicide at 17, and my world fell apart 28 years ago. Depression is an awful thing, and few Christians understand, or pretend that they don’t. I’m tired of phony, “everything is ok in my life” Christians, who have the perfect figure, perfect husband and kids, perfect job, and “all my prayers are answered.” I’m tired of Nordy’s wearing speakers, who present such a phony front. why can’t we just be real with each other? Sometimes life stinks. Not always, but sometimes, and that’s ok. I should be able to be me, not what others expect me to be.

    Sometimes I find it hard to worship God.I love him but I wonder after all of the hardships does he truly love me. I hear how others are blessed and how they are so grateful to God, but I ask and ponder where is God in my life and why has my life been so filled with hurt and trauma?

God tells us to pray for our enemies. Even to love them. That is impossible on our own. Seeing the photos and news reports from Paris makes my blood boil and I want to bomb our enemies into oblivion. I want revenge. But that is not God's way. ...
