Sing praises to the LORD, O you his saints, and give thanks to his holy name. For his anger is but for a moment, and his favor is for a lifetime. Weeping may tarry for the night, but joy comes with the morning. (Psalm 30:4-5 ESV) Are you an atheist? (If you are receiving this email, I'm guessing your answer is a resounding - NO!) But all atheist don't declare their beliefs. Some, maybe most, just live it. These are called 'practical atheists'. They might be bible declaring, church going Christians. But when it comes to the realities of their day-to-day life, God barely figures into it. It's easy to fall into such a state, especially when we live in a place of ease and comfort. We don't think about our neediness. And we planned so well, that all of our contingencies are covered. We have become independent even of God. That shows up most easily and practically in prayer. When we don't feel a need to pray, we are on the road toward practical atheism.A That was David's position in Psalm 30. This week we are going to close our series on prayer by looking at the joy and dangers of blessings. I'd encourage you to take some time and read this psalm to prepare your heart and mind for worship this Sunday.
