God Does Not Keep Silence
Read: PSALM 50:1-6
I’ll be the first to confess I often like to think of God as that “still, small voice” (1 Kings 9:12, NKJV). I like to imagine that an encounter with God happens in the secret and quiet place where all the din and noise of world finally fades away.
But as this psalm attests, God is also loud. God is also blazing glory that cannot be contained. God is also strength and might that have no limit. God is also resplendent beauty, unmatched and immeasurable.
Sometimes God is that gentle whisper—yes! But let us also not forget that sometimes God comes and does not keep silence. Praise be to God because in all things—that which is comfortingly quiet and that which is gloriously loud—our God is good.
Heaven and earth cannot contain your glory, O magnificent and loving God! May our hearts rejoice and be glad in this knowledge. AMEN.
