good quote

" In my opinion, the great single need of the moment is that light-hearted superficial religionists be struck down with a vision of God high and lifted up, with His train filling the temple. The holy art of worship seems to have passed away like the Shekinah glory from the tabernacle. As a result, we are left to our own devices and forced to make up the lack of spontaneous worship by ...bringing in countless cheap and tawdry activities to hold the attention of the church people." ~ A.W. Tozer

Great Psalm for "recharging"

Psalm 46

1) God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.
2) Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;
3) Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mointains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah.
4) There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the most High.
5) God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved: God shall halp her, and that right early.
6) The heathen raged, the kingdoms were moved: he uttered his voice, the earth melted.
7) The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.
8) Come, behold the works of the LORD, what desolations he hath made in the earth.
9) He maketh wars to cease unto the end of the earth; he breakesth the bow, and cutteth the spear in sunder; he burneth the chariot in the fire.
10) Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exhalted in the earth.
11) The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.

This Psalm is a great one to read when you need to find rest and refuge in the Lord. There are 3 things I see in this particular one... I see God's Protection (verses 1 through 3), God's Presence (verses 4 through 7), and God's Power (verses 8 through 11). Also, through out the Psalm it is said 3 times that God is our refuge and that He is with us. (us being those who have trusted him as their one and only Savior.)
