There are moments that seem insignificant on the outside, but quietly on the inside, truth is being galvanized.
Several years ago, I was in Chicago for a radio event. It was a 2-day event with lots of stages and concerts and listeners. So the morning after it was over, I wanted some quiet beauty before I had to fly.
I decided to go stand on the shore of Lake Michigan, to be still and seek His face. I remember having some trouble figuring out where to drive my rental car, hoping perhaps I could find a public beach. Finally, I pulled into a parking lot with woods beside it. I could see the lake through the trees and thought maybe I could traipse through to the water.
The woods were steeper than I had anticipated. A few feet in, I stopped and thought: this is it. I can see the lake, I’m all alone, this is my spot to pray and wait on Him. And then here’s what happened.
Standing in an obscure place with no one around, I became aware of my finite humanity.
Strong thoughts filled my mind. “I have no idea what is under that rock. I have no idea what is under the surface of that water. I have no idea who’s around me, what’s next in my life, how the earth is staying in orbit.”
A drop of knowledge from heaven unexpectedly saturated me in my first moments of being intentionally still. And these words filled me: I am extraordinarily finite. There were tears that accompanied the thought as my heart began to catapult towards worship.
So I wept and worshipped the One who is extraordinarily infinite.
Today as we make radio, we are extraordinarily finite. We don’t know who is listening, what they need, why they are listening, where they are going, or what they are thinking. We only know the small scope of our focus and peripheral, our limits profound.
But the Limitless One, He takes our radio offering and feeds the masses. Like five little loaves and two little fishes, He takes our next break and creates miracles.
Take away for today:
With humility and prayer, let’s give our station, our staff, our signal, and our shows to God. Then let’s stand in awe as Jesus takes our extraordinarily finite lives and does what only He can do.
