“Like the appearance of a rainbow in the clouds on a rainy day, so was the radiance around him. This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the Lord. When I saw it, I fell facedown, and I heard the voice of one speaking.” Ezekiel 1:28 (NIV)
Fresh smell of rain hitting dry ground. Lightning dancing through the sky. Wind swirling everything in sight. Yes, even in the midst of a storm, God’s power shines bright. He opens up the skies and replenishes the soul, the dust of His creation. And if that wasn’t enough, His fingertips paint the most brilliant, soft colors that melt into the heavens. Ever seen a rainbow that didn’t steal your breath away? Sweet reminder of God’s love, mercy and promises kept. Need those after the storm. Drenched and worn wondering – and then it appears – His glory filling up our sky. Our Keeper – the One who comes and calls us.
Love the way God calls Ezekiel. Mesmerized by God’s beauty, power and holiness, Ezekiel is face down and listening. Amazing how God hears Ezekiel’s trembling heart. Incredible the way He spelled out a journey layered with obstinate, rebellious Israelites. A prophet charged with speaking the words of the Almighty to those who discarded the very thought of Him. Fresh smell of God’s reign hitting deaf ears.
Our Keeper – the One who comes, calls, empowers and redeems.
Tough journey up ahead? Rain drenching down on our dreams? Obedience demanding our all? Embrace the Sovereign One – the Lord God Almighty whose glory cannot be contained. Who drops us to our knees so we can hear the voice of One speaking, whispering ever so sweetly – follow Me.
“Sweet Jesus, the awe of Your presence takes our breath away – help us to never lose sight of how majestic, holy and glorious You are.”
For His Glory
