OCTOBER 31 THE SELF-EXISTENT GOD

The LORD reigneth; let the people tremble: he sitteth between the cherubims; let the earth be moved.

—Psalm 99:1

In this context, I confess a sadness about the shallowness of Christian thinking in our day. Many are interested in religion as a kind of toy. If we could make a judgment, it would appear that numbers of men and women go to church without any genuine desire to gear into deity. They do not come to meet God and delight in His presence. They do not come to hear from that everlasting world above! …

Compared to Him, everything around us in this world shrinks in stature and significance. It is all a little business compared to Him—little churches with little preachers; little authors and little editors; little singers and little musicians; little deacons and little officials; little educators and little statesmen; little cities and little men and little things!

Brethren, humankind is so smothered under the little grains of dust that make up the world and time and space and matter that we are prone to forget that at one point God lived and dwelt and existed and loved without support, without help, and without creation.

Such is the causeless and self-existent God! CES038-039

Lord, as I enter the church service this next Sunday, help me to come expectantly. I’m little; You are big. Let me wait in silence before You. Amen. [1]
