The Scene: Large breaking waves near shore, rolling in one after another. Then the wave flattens out and continues to roll onto the shore, gently caressing the sandy beach.
Psalm 89:9 “You rule over the surging sea; when its waves mount up, you still them.”
Sometimes the large waves seem the only way people see God–a God of awesome power. The people fear Him. But, if His people would focus on who our holy God really is, they will see His gentleness, like the waves as they gently stroke the sandy shores.
God is mighty, but toward His children who obey Him, He is a loving, kind, forgiving, Father.
Psalm 46:10 “Be still and know that I am God; I will be exalted in the earth.”
Listen to His gentle voice, spoken through His Holy Spirit.
Psalm 107:29-31 “He stilled the storm to a whisper; the waves of the sea were hushed. They were glad when it grew calm, and he guided them to their desired haven. Let them give thanks to the Lord for his unfailing love and his wonderful deeds for men.”
“Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good. His love endures forever.” (Psalm 136:1)
