The land will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, just like the waters cover the sea.
Habakkuk 2, 14
Yesterday I was in Palanga near the sea. I sat high up in the dunes and looked down at the vast sea. How big, how wide! And I thought: If only the sea would be filled with the grace of God! And a thought in me said: The Sea cannot grasp the grace, it is too large! After some time, I thought: If only the sea would flood the land! But that doesn’t work, the land is too high. And again a thought came in response: the land would have to lower itself. Yes, I thought that would be the solution: Then the sea may flood the land. And I saw it in my mind, how the land levelled and lowered. The hills disappeared and a large valley opened up. As the water flowed into it, until everything was covered by the water.
God wants to tell us something: His love and grace is really much, much larger than any sea. Nobody and nothing can grasp the grace of God! God wants to flood the land with His grace. But it is too high.
The pride of people and their arrogance independence from God. We are too proud. We need to humble ourselves before God and we bow before Him. Then the power of grace can flood us.
God is ready, he wants to. But we hinder him. Let us humble ourselves as Jesus did. We know, that we are dependent on Him alone. We want to ask Him that His grace falls on your lives like a warm spring rain, or a life-giving stream. We want to reach our hands out to Him, the living Lord. We want to beg for mercy, love and compassion. He likes to give.
Thank you, Jesus, you have not forgotten us! Our country is important for you. You’ll flood it with your grace, if we humble ourselves before You. Please, flood now my life with your grace! I want to bathe in this stream of life, be cleansed and healed, and above all else praise and worship you. Let my heart overflowing with gratitude, joy and peace! Thou shalt be the Lord.
