Typically Mondays are uneventful. By that I mean I usually don't have a lot planned for Mondays. I like to spend the bulk of that day in the study, making preparations for the coming Lord's Day. If we aren't careful, especially on a day like Monday, we will pass through those days without taking the time to reflect upon the Lord as we should. In our daily routines we fall into a rut of normalcy and fail to recognize the hand of God in our lives. In fact, when we consider the span of our lives there are a lot more normal, routine days than there are the spectacular and memorable ones.
But I want to remind us that even in the midst of those normal, average days, our Lord is still there and He still cares for us. I suppose sometimes He wonders why we don't think of Him or recognize Him more often than we do. We get so wrapped up in living that we fail to honor the Giver of life. We may be so busy going through our daily routines that we fail to remember that He is the one who gave the strength we needed to face whatever our day brought forth. Even when we are unaware, we enjoy His provision in our lives.
Consider the words of Paul spoken at Mars Hill. Acts 17:22-28
Then Paul stood in the midst of Mars' hill, and said, Ye men of Athens, I perceive that in all things ye are too superstitious.  For as I passed by, and beheld your devotions, I found an altar with this inscription, TO THE UNKNOWN GOD. Whom therefore ye ignorantly worship, him declare I unto you.  God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands;  Neither is worshipped with men's hands, as though he needed any thing, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things;  And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation;  That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us:  For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring.
Clearly he was astonished that they recognized the presence of God in their lives, but never came to the realization of who He really was. They worshipped an Unknown God. We don't worship an unknown god, but the Lord Jesus Christ who died for our sin upon the cross of Calvary. He is near to us even now. In Him we live, and move, and have our being. That is a profound thought isn't it? Even when we are unaware of His nearness, He is there. The lives we live, the breath we breathe, it all comes from the Lord. So, on an average, ordinary Monday, take the time to recognize the Lord we serve and the extraordinary benefits we receive from Him!
