Jume 10, 2012

"God saw all that he had made, and it was very good. And there was evening, and there was morning —the sixth day. Thus the heavens and the earth were completed in all their vast array." Genesis 1:31-2:1 

No matter how many times you see it and hear it, the ocean is still impressive.

Sitting on the beach listening to the waves, feeling the breeze and smelling all the smells of the sea, we were once again overwhelmed by it's grandeur.

Coming to the beach through the marsh we saw it teaming with life and a certain beauty. And walking to the beach through the dunes we saw a variety of beautiful little flowers and birds.

Such a variety of landscapes and plants and wildlife. God spoke it all into existence and pronounced it "very good"!

Sitting on the beach and slipping into relaxation we felt that same sense of "very goodness". What an amazing creation! What an incredible God! The soothing sound of the relentless wave washing ashore was having a therapeutic effect on me. It brought to mind this verse:

"His feet were like bronze glowing in a furnace, and his voice was like the sound of rushing waters." Revelation 1:15

I have stood at Victoria Falls and heard the deafening roar of the plunging waters worshipping as I thought of this verse and wondered if I was hearing the voice of God. It was overwhelming!

The gentle sounds of the ocean waves are no match for the sounds of the Falls that drown out every other sound, but I was equally blessed as I thought again of this verse and felt as though God was whispering to me through the waves, "I love you" over and over again!

And, indeed He does! His love is as constant as those waves washing to shore and as vast as the ocean! As a point of emphasis, He built His reassuring voice into the sounds of nature!
