Just suppose our world was filled with talking animals and burning bushes.
Rainbows and angels
and things we could not see
but still were there.
I was reading this morning the story of Balaam (Numbers 22)
and wondered about this donkey who suddenly spoke.
Was it really the donkey or was it God speaking through him?
The Presence of God broke forth into his situation.
and Balaam knew it.
It was a moment that he never forgot.
The One Who was still surrounds us with His Presence.
Wherever we are
Whatever we are facing.
Day after day He surrounds us.
We may try to ignore Him
but He is ever with us.
We may try to hide
but His Love is relentless.
No, I’ve never seen a burning bush
or heard a talking animal
but I’ve experienced a touch of His Glory and Goodness and Grace.
We live surrounded by His Glory.
The more we gaze upon Him
our daily struggles look different.
Seen in the light of His Ability
our choices are different.
Our thoughts uplifted.
Yes, C.S. Lewis said it well in these words,
“The world is crowded with Him. He walks everywhere incognito.”
Let that truth encourage your heart and warm your spirit
wherever you are today
filling your day with shining moments all over.
