As the waters cover the sea

“As the waters cover the sea” – These words come from the Old Testament prophets, Isaiah and Habakkuk. Isaiah says this: “The earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord as the waters cover the sea” (11:9). Habakkuk adds something else. He speaks about being “filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord” (2:14). It’s wonderful to look out over “the waters that cover the sea.” There’s something more wonderful than “the waters that cover the sea.” It’s the glory of the Lord. When you look out at the waters covering the sea, ask the Lord to give you a glimpse of His glory. Where does the glory of the Lord come from? Does it come from “the waters that cover the sea”? No! That’s not where it comes from. Many people look out – and they see nothing but water! The glory comes from the Lord. It comes to us when we look to Him. Beyond “the waters that cover the sea”, there is the Lord who created “the waters that cover the sea.” He created us. He wants to make us “a new creation in Christ Jesus” (2 Corinthians 5:17). How do we receive this great blessing from the Lord? God sent His Son for us, and He sends His Spirit into our hearts (Galatians 4:4-6). We receive the gift of God’s Spirit when we come, in faith, to God’s Son (Galatians 3:14). Look beyond “the sea.” Look beyond “the waters.” Look to the Son. He gives us the “living water” of the Spirit (John 7:37-39). Blessed by God, let’s give glory to Him!
