The wonder of it all

 

Some look for God in Nature’s forces

The mighty acts of thunder and storm

But miss the word breathed in the calm.

His touch that would their spirits warm.

 

Oh the wonder of it all, the wonder of it all, as reverently we come

Right up into His presence with love we’re overcome.

And we receive the Glory

 

Folk listen for God in all the noise.

The loudness of their Praise

But fail to hear the still small voice

And the sweetness of His gaze.

 

Oh the wonder of it all, the wonder of it all, as reverently we come

Right up into His presence with love we’re overcome.

And we receive the Glory

 

Many seek in signs and wonders

And look for Him to heal

When all along He just wants them

To in His Presence kneel.

 

Oh the wonder of it all, the wonder of it all, as reverently we come

Right up into His presence with love we’re overcome.

And we receive the Glory

 

But simply come and worship with an open heart

Bowing to our God in absolute delight.

Then all our desires He’ll lovingly give

Heaven’s Will revealing, flooding down into sight.

 

Oh the wonder of it all, the wonder of it all, as reverently we come

Right up into His presence with love we’re overcome.

And we receive the Glory

Ideas behind the thoughts in this song.

The desire of God’s heart is for Relationship with His Creation. Not us coming to Him with a list.

Psalm 37:4 “Delight yourself in The Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart”. As we come into a personal relationship with God and delight to be in His Presence then He lovingly responds.

1 Kings 19:11-12 and a mighty windstorm hit the mountain; it was such a terrible blast that the rocks were torn loose, but the Lord was not in the wind. After the wind, there was an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake. 12 And after the earthquake, there was a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire. And after the fire, there was the sound of a gentle whisper.

God did not speak in demonstrations of power, but in a still small voice.
