You may be in the midst of a true season of pain. Perhaps this season has lingered and has now become two seasons. Perhaps you’ve looked for comfort but haven’t found much. Maybe your heart aches and feels empty. Has your lack of comfort dried up your words of worship? Has the loss of ease emptied your heart of gratitude?
It may be that the most important thing you could do is also one of the most unnatural things you could ever imagine doing: Giving thanks to God, praising and worshiping Him. Regardless of your circumstances.
“Let us hold tightly without wavering to the hope we affirm, for God can be trusted to keep his promise.” Hebrews 10:23
Worship in its truest form ascribes and acknowledges that the truth is about God. Worship reminds us of who He is and who we aren’t. He alone is God. He is in control. He is the just God, the compassionate and loving God. He knows everything. He knows our condition.
God-centered worship ultimately comforts us because it reminds us of the truth about life. It brings hope.
When life seems most uncomfortable, worship God.
