For as the waters fill the sea, the earth will be filled with an awareness of the glory of the LORD.
Habakkuk 2:14

As we hasten toward our Lord’s return, I believe God wants to reveal Himself in even great ways than in the past.  I look for this to happen on both a corporate and personal level.  I believe God wants to flood the earth and our lives with His presence.

As we took a road trip as a family earlier this summer we traveled through areas affected by heavy flooding.  The pictures weren’t pretty.  We saw acres and acres of planted fields turned into lakes. Roads were closed.  Homes under water.  For many, their lives would be changed forever.  Although they tried to control the spread of the flood once it hit it was devastating.  It seemed as though once the water started to come it just spread covering more and more.

What happens when God “floods” our lives?  That’s what we want, right?  We desire more and more of God’s presence.  But what happens when it starts spreading to every area of our life?  Will it be uncomfortable?  Will we lose some things?  Will it devastate certain areas?  What happens if it just continues to spread?  Could we handle it?  Deep down is that what we really want?  I don’t know, but I hope so.  There is no doubt that when God gets hold of a life it is changed forever.  It might get uncomfortable, but there’s nothing better.
