Witnessing the Divine


Witnessing the Divine is to witness the goodness of God in life. God is moving on our behalf even when we can't see. God's hand is glorious; when His workings manifest, it is stunning. Life changing.

God revealed Himself to Moses in a burning bush; Elijah, a still small voice; Job a whirlwind. He revealed Himself at Christ's baptism, a voice endorsing His Son; the apostles by tongues of fire; John the Revelator, a loud voice. God reveals Himself in the mundane and the spectacular.


Regardless how He chooses to reveal Himself, you can be certain of this; His promises are yes and amen...

For as many as are the promises of God, in Him they are yes; therefore also through Him is our Amen to the glory of God through us. 2 Corinthians 1:20 NASB

He promises to abide with us forever—a yes promise. Many distractions are fired our way, deep from inside the enemy's camp, purposed to cause us to take our eyes off Christ, and like Peter, in the thrust of the storm, we sink. He is faithful to reach forth His hand to save us when we cry out to Him to save us. That is His promise.

Witnessing God moving in my life, that is my hope for this journal in the vastness of cyberspace. So many voices writing, speaking, singing. I pray we all write, speak, and sing for the glory of God. My sincere prayer is that as I see God revealed in my life, the mundane and the spectacular, you see Him revealed in your life as well. A Hebrew blessing I speak often, reminds me;

Blessed are you, Breath of Life, who makes every human throat a shofar for the breathing of Your Truth.

I pray my throat, my voice, be used for His glory.
