Proverbs 21:1-6, 10-13; Luke 8:19-21
Like a stream is the king’s heart in the hand of the LORD; wherever it pleases him, he directs it (Proverbs 21:1).
Tranquility like streams of water characterized the heart of the humble king of the universe. The Son of man conceived by the Holy Spirit in the Virgin’s womb offered no resistance to that same Spirit.
Anyone who hears and follows the whispering Logos with the ears of the Spirit become as intimate with the eternal king as his mother and brethren. Sharp rocks and cutting thorns are smoothed by the running channels of deifying grace.
The mother of Jesus and his brothers came to him but were unable to join him because of the crowd. He was told, “Your mother and your brothers are standing outside and they wish to see you.” He said to them in reply, “My mother and my brothers are those who hear the word of God and act on it.”
The Spirit of the Logos is always whispering day and night in the depths of our heart. It also whispers all around us in the wonderful world of nature. May we tune in and live on the Spirit’s frequency, in divine silence and tranquility.
