Today's encouragement comes from 1 Chronicles 16:26, where we read these words:
"For all the gods of the peoples are idols, but the LORD made the heavens."
Here is a succinct creed, that aids in our basic understanding of life. There are idols, and there is the covenant God, the LORD. We either worship God in covenant; or we worship idols, in rebellion, ignorance, and/or general stupidity.
If God made the heavens, and He did--should we not trust Him? After all, Jesus came from heaven, to earth, in the incarnation--so as to bring His elect church to glory (in His resurrection). Let us praise Him for this!
