Buried treasure…I found some the other day.
It was tucked away in the middle of an old and often neglected book written by a man named Amos, who was a shepherd by trade, but a prophet by the call of God. He wrote – “He who forms the mountains, creates the wind, and reveals his thoughts to man, he who turns dawn to darkness, and treads the high places of the earth – the Lord God Almighty is his name.” (Amos 4:13)
Amazing! Our God is more powerful than our minds can grasp, but more personal than our hearts can imagine.
He is the maker of the mountains and the One who brings the wind into being. He commands the sun to run its course and holds each star in place. He treads the high places of the earth and nothing can thwart His sovereign rule.
And yet…this all-mighty God “reveals His thoughts to man.”
The One who designed the universe desires relationship with you and me. He wants us to know Him and reveals Himself to us through the world that He has created and the Word that He has inspired.
Oh, may we not lose sight of this – especially as Christmas approaches and we celebrate the birth of Jesus, God’s full and final revelation of Himself.
Infinitely powerful…intimately personal…may God give us eyes to see the treasure of this truth.
