Worship Me In Truth

"I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me." John 14:6

Richard Halverson was chaplain of the senate in the 80s. He wrote a book called No Greater Power. In it he asks: "Do you have faith in God or in your ideas about God?" He says that if He is limited to your understanding, then He is too small and you are worshiping an idol.

When we have a problem or are in tough circumstances, if we reckon God to be just what we can conceive and no more, He's too small, faith falters, and we don't see the true God. We need to believe His omnipotence, even if we don't understand it. As we think of these things, we are offering acts of worship to the one true God.

Prayer: Father, today, at this holy Christmas season, we come to you though Jesus and bring offerings of praise and recognize that you are a great and awesome God. Amen

*Thursday I had my surgery. It all went very well. I had the most fabulous nurses and all day the first day, I had no pain. Praise the Lord. Your faithful prayers carried me through. I am now awaiting word on the tests which I believe will be according to God's word.


  1. You are so right. We try to understand God with our limited human minds but we just need to accept that He is all powerful and beyond out comprehension. The main thing we have to understand is that He loves us even if we don't understand why!

    I'm so glad the surgery went well, we will keep praying for you!

  2. So happy to hear the surgery went well!! And I await more good news from you:)

  3. Hi Nancy -

    I'm glad the surgery is over and went well. Praying for your swift recovery and a good report.


  4. HOw interesting you should mention this. My husband referred to J.B. Phillip's book, "Your God is Too Small" in his sermon this morning! Wow.

    I am believing with you for a good report on your tests, dear.


  5. I'll be praying for you. I know all will be well, though.
