I have always loved the ocean. Walking on the beach fills my mind with wonder and my soul with joy. All that water sparks my imagination as I consider the wonders and mystery within that vast body of water. Ocean beaches captivate me. There is always something new to discover because the waters wash ashore remnants from the deep, or draw ripple patterns in the sand, or bring forth the sounds of the underwater caverns to the surface.
This wonder and fascination with the ocean makes me ap- preciate the Creator. In Isaiah 51:15, God says, “For I am the Lord your God, who churns up the sea so that its waves roar.”
The ocean reflects God’s nature: deep and mysterious. And, yet, He willingly sent His Son into the world to reveal those mysteries and draw us down into His depths. From the shore, He gives us a view of His greatness and invites us to swim deeper and deeper into life with Him. He does not remain a mystery, but through His Son brings us into more knowledge and understanding about who He is and what He has done on behalf of humankind.
God’s creation displays His glory and the glory of His Son. Walk the beach with God.
