Today’s Reading: Zechariah 14:1‐21, Revelation 20:1‐15, Psalm 148:1‐ 14, Proverbs 31:8‐9
Context: Zechariah 14 prophesies the redemption of Israel and the punishment of the nations that do worship Him as Lord. Verses 16 – 19 command everyone to observe the feast of booths – a week away from home focusing on worshiping God.
Zechariah 14:17 “And if any of the families of the earth do not go up to Jerusalem to worship the King, the Lord of hosts, there will be no rain on them.”
- If you do not go to worship the Lord
- There will be no rain
It is clear that God desires his people to take scheduled time away to worships him. Rain – moisture that brings growth – is the promised result.
Apply: I am about to go to Pine Cove to teach at a New Years conference. I want to make sure that I spend real time worshiping the Lord during this family retreat.
When can you schedule time away from your busy schedule to worship God?
