I’m finding myself at a loss for words and the funny thing is it’s okay
The last thing I need is to be heard
But to hear what You would say
Word of God speak! Would You pour down like rain?
Washing my eyes to see Your majesty
To be still and know that You’re in this place
Please let me stay and rest in Your holiness
Word of God speak
I’m finding myself in the midst of You, beyond the music, beyond the noise
All that I need is to be with You and in the quiet hear Your voice
I’m finding myself at a loss for words
And the funny thing is it’s okay
This is a little bit of a throwback song. It was on one of the first albums I had after getting saved as a teen (granted, that was still 21st century, but still). One thing I love about music though is its ability to transcend time and enter and effect our hearts long after the artist created it. This song illustrates beautifully the intimacy the God desires from us, and that we should seek to achieve with Him. If you don’t have a daily “quiet time” with your Creator, I strongly encourage you to strike out into unchartered waters and try it. And when you do, don’t simply read a chapter in the Bible or in a devotional book and be done with it, or just prayer for a minute or two or ten. Take a few moments and be still, knowing that He is God, and listen for His voice. Yesterday I referenced a passage in 1 Kings 18. In the following chapter, verses 9-12, one of the greatest prophets of the Old Testament was taught (or perhaps re-taught) a very important lesson. God doesn’t always reveal Himself in the wonderous and miraculous. Sometimes, He waits for you to get alone with Him so that He can whisper to you. Find a way to get to the place where you can honestly and earnestly say, “Speak, Lord, for Your servant is listening,” and see if those quiet conversations aren’t just as awe-inspiring as the mighty miracles we so often ask for.
