This year, God has been fairly quiet. I’ve felt few promptings and whispers to my heart. At times, I’ve wondered…
…if God has left me,
…if I did something wrong,
…or if I’ve not done something that perhaps I should.
Then, I read in Revelation these words about the throne room of God:
The one sitting on the throne was as brilliant as gemstones – like jasper and carnelian. And the glow of an emerald circled his throne like a rainbow….from the throne came flashes of lightning and the rumble of thunder…In front of the throne was a shiny sea of glass, sparkling like crystal. (Rev. 4:3, 5, 6)
Look at the descriptions:
brilliant as gemstones…
like a rainbow…
flashes of lightning…
rumbles of thunder…
sparkling like crystal.
Y’all! I’ve been so caught up in hearing from God that I missed actually seeing Him.
Suddenly, the twinkle of a diamond on someone’s hand is a tiny peek at the glory of God. The beauty of a rainbow is now a glimpse of what encircles His head. The shimmer of a crystal vase in the sunlight is a trace of what rests beneath His feet. The fear and awe thunder brings is a whisper of His actual voice.
Are you looking for God? Do you see Him in what is around you?
We live in a land of shadows. Everything He created is a glimpse of Him.
For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse (Rom. 1:19-20).
