Standing in awe at the foot of this majestic waterfall, we watched the constant flow of water rush over the top plummeting onto the rocks below. Aaron (the hubby) stood motioning in an attempt to say something and, although he stood within arms reach, I couldn’t make out what he was saying. With each climbing step, the pounding force of water against the rocks grew and his voice dwindled. Drawing closer to the waterfall meant he either had to scream or I had to really lean in and focus on what he was saying; hear his voice.
In the digital era in which we live in, there are a multitude of voices rushing in, crashing into the rocks of our lives. This constant flow of voices saturates our minds proclaiming who we are, declaring who we should be, broadcasting where we should be headed, and conveying what we should be doing. If allowed, they will drown out the voice of God. The closer you get to the cascade of voices, the more you have to really lean in to hear His voice.
Quiet the noisy world and lean into His soft and sovereign voice. His voice telling you, you ARE fearfully and wonderfully made (Ps 139:14) in His image and likeness (Genesis 1:27). You were formed by Him and deeply known by Him (Jeremiah 1:5). You are cherished by Him above all creation (Luke 12:1-7). He desires to prosper you and to give you hope (Jeremiah 29:11). You are dearly love and nothing – NOT ONE THING – can separate you from that love! (Romans 8:39)
For God soooooo loved YOU that He sent His only Son to die for you that you might have eternal life. John 3:16
