As the Grains of Sand – Part 2
The vast and powerful waters overwhelm me as my eyes scan the breadth of the ocean. The water’s movement is not random. The waves press forward, swelling with a rhythm that is noticeable as the tide washes the shore each time, shifting the sand below. Can you picture it? Can you imagine the power that the water holds?
Like each grain of sand, we are uniquely shaped and designed by the Creator of the universe. Like the pebbles and shells in the water, also our edges are softened as His Word continually washes over us.
“That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,” Eph 5:26
This washing over us is a continual work in our lives. He will carry it to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. [Philippians 1:6] His cleansing through the blood is like water that washes the sand on the shores. While we look to the sand as an example of how uniquely each of us is created, like the powerful waters that wash onto the shore, the source of that power is overwhelming. There is a grace that flows from the cross that is so overwhelming and so powerful that we cannot contain it. Let’s be caught in the current of this powerful grace. Let is wash over us, sanctifying and cleansing us. Look to the cross, where his grace flows and get caught in the current of his grace.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, Wash me today with the grace that flows from the cross today. Cleanse me from sin and soften my edges that continues to show the good work that you are doing in me.
In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
