Snap Out of It
by Randy Chambers, 2015-10-20
Psalm 144:3, NIV: O LORD, what is man that you care for him, the
son of man that you think of him?
What are we that God cares for us? We are so small an insignificant in
comparison to Him, yet He values us so greatly. But do we take notice of Him?
Our lives are filled to the brim with activity, the most of which is centered on
selfish desire. God pays attention to us, yet we pay little attention to Him.
Many of us enter into each day without thought of Him, without talking to Him,
or without inviting Him to go with us into our day. So many of us talk of
eternity only to invest ourselves in the pursuits of this life. Though we may
not be mindful of God, He is mindful of us. "For the coming of the Son of Man
will be just like the days of Noah. For as in those days before the flood they
were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that
Noah entered the ark, and they did not understand until the flood came and took
them all away; so will the coming of the Son of Man be” (Mt. 24:37-39).
Sometimes we walk through this life in a trance, and need to snap out of it.
Sometimes we need to a gentle nudge—sometimes we need a good kick to wake us up
and get our eyes on what’s important.
