We often say “God is really moving!” when things are happening openly, when excitement is running rampant, when results are pouring in.
But we forget that “still waters run deep.” It is vital to remember that God is often powerfully moving when nothing visible is happening …
… as he works on our character
… as he waits until the timing is perfect
… as he sets all the parts in motion
… as he prepares people’s hearts
His work then is silent, deep, slow … but oh, so strong!
Think of God’s power like a river. When we “see things happening,” it is like the river rapids: we see the white water, feel the spray, are overwhelmed by the raw power.
But upstream, the same river runs quiet and still. The same power is present – it is just not so readily apparent.
So is our God: he is always moving.
