God of the Roaring Waves

For I am the Lord your God, who churns up the sea so that its waves roar—the Lord Almighty is his name.

– Isaiah 51:15

The beach has long been one of my favorite places to bask in the presence of God.  Perhaps that’s because it comes so naturally there.  The vastness of the horizon, where the unceasing waves kiss the unending sky, hints at the infinitude of the Creator.  The countless grains of sand, beyond our ability to even have a name for their number, remind me of the meticulous concern of the Creator for every little detail of His creation.  Isaiah 51:15 dresses the whole beach experience in even more glorious splendor.  To close my eyes and listen to the waves, I am literally hearing the handiwork of the LORD Almighty who makes them roar.  He “churns up the sea so that its waves roar.”  Yes, the Artist has signed His name in large letters on the shores of the ocean, one of His most magnificent masterpieces.
