When God looks through His window onto the waters of our baptism, He sees water where there is scarcely a ripple. He sees a mirror waiting to reflect Himself!
He has been trying to convince us of a fundamental truth – Where we see storms, He sees tranquility. Where we see discord, anger and resentment, He sees peace, love, understanding and forgiveness.
Where we see empty churches, He sees an opportunity to fill the hearts of worshipers far beyond the building’s walls. Where we see dissent, He sees followers who will follow anybody, people who are leaders that have yet to learn to lead.
The waters of our baptism that we see as a turbulent whirlpool can only be calmed when we realise that our ego is the lens that we are looking through. Seen through God’s eyes, and lived through Christ’s sacrifice on the cross, and experienced through the presence of the Holy Spirit, together the Trinity give a completely different view of the waters of our baptism.
A whisper in the wilderness is too soft to disturb the surface of the water, so be prepared to be the mirror He expects us to be!
