How great is your goodness,
which you have stored up for those who fear you,
which you bestow in the sight of men
on those who take refuge in you.
Psalm 31:19 (NIV)

I was going to jump on the bandwagon of asking the following questions:

More blessing?
Does that line up with who I know God to be?
Do we expect God to be fair?

but some of it just makes sense.

I was going to approach thinking about this in relation to song and worship and life and worship but I don’t think it is quite relevant.

The Message paraphrase touts ‘those who fear you’ as ‘worship’.

So if fearing God is worship (or part of it) then what does that look like exactly?

And the poetics of God “storing up goodness” is also interesting.


Re. Worship in and out

I do believe that as a group of people regardless of establishment, we have our own to hold in regards to living according to Jesus although there is much that God can and does do through our brokenness (in churches as well as elsewhere) we do need to be mindful of actual things that aren’t good – because it is unrealistic to think they don’t exist.
