Psalm 46:10, “Be still and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.”
Has God ever called you into a period of “holy darkness” in which you clearly knew that He was in control of a situation in which you, personally, had no answers?
He did that recently with me. The stillness, the darkness, the lack of clarity, the absence of answers–these did not stir me up, but rather calmed me down. Due to my Saviour’s guiding hand alone (because my heart can be very naturally stirred up by events around me), I was able to rest, knowing with all my heart that He knew the answers I wished to know and that if/when He wanted me to know, I would be told these answers. If not, He is my answer, all life long.
The older I get, the more I understand that His holiness is often most present in those still moments in the darkness. If I seek to know His holiness, it is there I will find it. If I spend my life seeking to know answers about how one thing (or person) relates to another, that will be my focus, and I will be more focused on this world that will pass away than on the world that is coming (and the One who inhabits it).
We are to point others to His holiness but . . . do we know it ourselves? His holiness is not just a lack of sin—oh, yes, the Lord is sinless—but rather it is a living, breathing attribute pointing to the greatness of the Lord we serve.
Holy, holy, holy. He is thrice holy. Let all the earth worship Him. Let us worship Him!!!
