Life without God is empty of meaning; life without a personal relationship with God lacks real joy.
The worship of heaven seems to be simple yet profound. Job, David, Isaiah responded to the awesome and terrifying presence of God in profound simplicity.
When the world sees God’s power and authority, empty “joy” will fade into silence.
The new wine fails, the vine languishes,
All the merry-hearted sigh.
The mirth of the tambourine ceases,
The noise of the jubilant ends,
The joy of the harp ceases.
PRAY FOR CONVICTION OF SIN AND REPENTANCE TO BRING ISRAEL TO HER KNEES BEFORE GOD.
