Ecclesiastes 5:2 (TNIV)
2 Do not be quick with your mouth,
do not be hasty in your heart
to utter anything before God.
God is in heaven
and you are on earth,
so let your words be few.
When you walk into the worship room for Sunday worship celebration, how do you enter? How do you approach that time? Is it just another thing you do? Is it no different than you going to work or walking into a store? This passage tell us how we are to approach God by telling us who God is and who we are. God is in heaven and we are on earth. God is God and we are mere mortals whom He can wipe away by His mere breath. In our prayers, let’s not mindlessly say things we don’t mean. Let’s say prayers to God that we really mean. Let’s pray in truth.
Responding to the Transmitted Message:
Let’s meditate on who God is and be awed. Let’s then be amazed that this great, big God would notice us and care for us. Let’s be amazed that He listens to our prayers and answers us with blessing.
