Crossing over Jordan

O death, where is thy sting?... thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Corinthians 15:55, 57

The prophets and the psalmists of the Old Testament wrestled as we do with the problem of evil in a divine universe, but their approach to God and nature was much more direct than ours. They did not interpose between God and His world that opaque web we moderns call the "laws of nature."

They could see God in a whirlwind and hear Him in a storm, and they did not hesitate to say so! There was about their lives an immediate apprehension of the divine. Everything in heaven and on earth assured them that this is God's world and that He rules over all.

I heard a Methodist bishop tell of being called to the bedside of an elderly dying woman in his early ministry. He said he was frightened; but the old saint was radiantly happy. When he tried to express the sorrow he felt about her illness, she would not hear it.

"Why, God bless you, young man," she said cheerfully, "there is nothing to be scared about. I am just going to cross over Jordan, where my Father owns the land on both sides of the river!" She understood about the unity of all things in God's creation.

Lord, just as Brother Lawrence "practiced the presence of God" in his daily life, I want my life to be about "apprehending the divine" so that I may have a steady supply of godly wisdom, spiritual power and delightful fellowship.
