The water of a well worn river rides on rock. It spent it’s time gouging out the temporary. It has found its place and has no need to seek another.
The River of Life from God has gouged out the temporary among us. He not only found his place upon the permanent rocks, he has become the foundation of the Waters of God.
People use cute phrases to sum up what they call “good things”. But that’s like assuming that sand can be a good foundation for a permanent river.
No one is good but God alone. No good thing exists but that which is the will of God.
What should we do about this? Doesn’t God say that he will give us wisdom without judgment? Doesn’t he command us to make a distinction between what is holy and what is common? Doesn’t God expect us to pray earnestly for all the things that are good?
Find yourself a comfortable place beside a flowing stream. Listen to the myriad of sounds the water makes. Now let your mind marvel that a singular component of water can sing such a song of variety.
Water is silent until it encounters and obstacle. The sound you hear is the water speaking of its encounter. Sit quietly in your chair and listen to the sound of the Holy Spirit. He is a river of truth. Just like the stream, he makes sounds when he encounters creation. Answer for yourself, what causes the greatest noises from the Holy Spirit?
