The Voice of the Lord

The Lord our God speaks to His people& we see this clearly & repeatedly throughout the Bible.
That voice comes to us in several different ways, but it always leads to peace if it is heard right & heeded fully.
Our responsibility is to hear, heed & obey the voice of the Lord so we need to know what we are looking & listening for.
Today we will look at God’s voice of power, majesty & glory.


The voice of the Lord is over the waters;
The God of glory thunders;
The Lord is over many waters.
The voice of the Lord is powerful;
The voice of the Lord is full of majesty. Psalm 29:3-4


This Psalm is a picture of a mighty thunderstorm rolling over & crashing down to impact the earth.
It sets the Lord as sovereign – above, beyond & over all creation. The majesty above.
God ‘s voice is powerful & comes from above like the sound of mighty thunder.
That voice is full of majesty & creative power, echoing (like thunder) over all creation.
Though the oceans roar & the seas rage the majestic & marvellous voice of the Lord thunders over them.

As God speaks it is like flashes of lightning – brilliant, bright & dazzling.
This depicts the glory & majesty of God’s mighty & powerful voice & presence.
Sounding out to resonate His will, word & ways to all creation.
That voice is awesome, amazing & cries out powerfully to all.
The Lord is able to make His majestic voice heard & heard clearly above all else.

There are many voices & noisy distractions in this world.
The mighty, marvellous, majestic, powerful voice of the Lord triumphs & sounds clearly above them all.
It is the one voice that needs our constant attention, awareness & alertness.
God speaks to those who are listening out for Him & He wants to be heard by you & by me.
He is always speaking, & speaking clearly, but how well are we listening?
How wonderful that though God’s mighty majestic voice thunders above everyone & everything He
dearly wants to speak to you & to me.
May we hear the Lord’s thunder & see His lightning too. Hallelujah!!!
Speak Lord for your servants are listening.

For Reflection

  • How easily do you get distracted by the sounds & voices of this world?
  • In what ways do you actively listen for the Lord speaking?
  • Meditate upon the mighty, marvellous, majestic voice of the Lord.

A song related to this theme:


Prayer

Heavenly Father,
Thank you that You speak powerfully through Your mighty majestic voice,
That though You are Sovereign over all you desire to speak to me Your beloved child.
Jesus thank you that Your voice is readily recognisable to me,
And that You lead me on paths of truth, righteousness & peace.
Holy Spirit teach & train me to tune in to the one voice I need to hear above all else,
The mighty, marvellous, majestic voice of the Lord.
This I ask In Jesus mighty Name.
Amen
