Preaching to Myself

Some of my best sermons are preached to myself …

The month of August has been a busy one:  Vacation.  Church events.  Life events.  Community events.  You name it.  I’ve done it … or will do it in the week to come.

In the 20 days of the month thus far, I’ve often found myself stressed and tired.  I’m always working on something and attempting to get a few more hours out of each day.  I frequently voice:  There is just too much to do.  I need more time.  I’m tired. 

On the surface that just seems like the price to pay for getting things done.  Yet, I would argue that at the core the phrases running through my head are more likely an indication of self-reliance and a resistance to rest in God.

My Sunday mornings start really early.  As I get ready to preach Psalm 77 to a group gathered in worship, I’m preaching this message to myself.

“I will consider all your works and meditate on all your mighty deeds.” ~ Psalm 77:12

Our God is a mighty God. He has done mighty works and he will do them once again.
