Waters

The other day I was reading through Psalm 93 on my lunch break.

3-The floods have lifted up, O Lord, the floods have lifted up their voice; the floods lift up their roaring. 4-Mightier than the thunders of many waters, mightier than the waves of the sea, the Lord on high is mighty!

I actually said to myself, “thats not that loud”, and brushed it off. It even made me chuckle. I should know by now that you shouldn’t laugh at God.

Well, fast forward a few days. I was down at the beach for my grandmother’s funeral. I went out for a walk on the beach after dark to help clear my head. There weren’t many people out. Just me, 16 mph winds, and deafening waves. Yes, you heard that right, deafening, mighty waves. After a few minutes of walking, the words of Psalm came flooding in over me.

Mighty waves. But He is mightier. Okay God, you have my attention. I don’t remember reading it at lunch that day, but I when I got to the condo and looked in my Bible, there it was, highlighted in Psalm 95, the words that came flooding in over me on my walk.

5-The sea is His, for he made it, and His hands formed the dry land. 6-Oh come, let us worship and bow down; let us kneel before the Lord, our Maker!

If the roar of His waves doesn’t get your attention, I don’t know what will. Moral of the story, don’t laugh at God, and make sure you’re listening to what he’s telling you. God is always speaking, you just have to be in tuned to Him and listen. What scripture is He speaking into your life?

  1. Genesis 45:5-8, which is just as Joseph reveals who he is to his brothers:

    “5 But don’t be upset, and don’t be angry with yourselves for selling me to this place. It was God who sent me here ahead of you to preserve your lives. 6 This famine that has ravaged the land for two years will last five more years, and there will be neither plowing nor harvesting. 7 God has sent me ahead of you to keep you and your families alive and to preserve many survivors. 8 So it was God who sent me here, not you! And he is the one who made me an adviser to Pharaoh—the manager of his entire palace and the governor of all Egypt.”

    Got me thinking about how much we dislike the journey and how we long for the day when everything makes sense.
