“And I heard a voice from heaven, like the sound of many waters and like the sound of loud thunder, and the voice which I heard was like the sound of harpists playing on their harps” (Revelation 14:2).
How does one describe what they do not understand? Is that not true of many of the things we experience in faith when trying to tell an unbeliever? But press on anyway and tell the story of our God and Savior. The day will come when the voices who know the Lord will gather and sing of His goodness. grace, and mercy. Why do you worry about what you sound like. Sing the tune and lyrics the Lord gives you.
Lord, there are many things I do not understand. The longer I live, the greater the list of things I do not understand. Help me to seek not so much to understand all things as to live life as You have created it to be lived. Help me to be thankful for what You have given me and to tell others of the Good News of great joy. Lead me from where I am to join those who are with You.
Lord Jesus, between the confession and the encouragement to go and tell others is the reality of inaction in me. You know what it will take to move me from where I am to where You are taking me. Lord, You lead this. I’ve been trying too hard and seeking to lead too long. Be the leader who is directing me in thought, word, and deed. Guide me according to, well, You. Guide me and teach me how to follow humbly. Amen.
