Ancient Wisdom…

"Behold, these are but the outskirts of his ways, and how small a whisper do we hear of him.  But the thunder of his power who can understand?"  Job 26:14

In this section of Job, Job is reflecting on the magnificence of God's creation and the grace of revelation.  For not only do we unmistakably hear from God in the apparent views of the cosmos but we also hear from him in the small whispers of the heart.  The truth is we have a hard time understanding and comprehending the awesomeness of the divine presence and revelation…while at the same time, when God speaks into the soul, it is difficult to ignore.

I've been trying to listen more of late…not that I gave up for any reason, but my prayers have been crying out with a renewed sense of urgency given the circumstances that I am facing now in my life's journey.  In the scope of trial that is often difficult to deny, ignore or escape, the whisper of God is being heard.  I'm constantly surprised and amazed at that but it is the only way in these days that I sense peace, contentment, and trust. 

I get the big shows of God's power…what I continually need is the small whisper.  How about you?
