The Voice of the Lord

The Lord our God speaks to His people through the spectacular & through the simple.
His mighty majestic voice thunders & shouts, yet at the same time it is a still small voice.
Oh, the wonder, mystery & majesty of our amazing God. He speaks in a variety of ways & tones.
Today we will again look at the Lord’s voice of many waters.


And behold, the glory of the God of Israel came from the way of the east. His voice was like the sound of many waters; and the earth shone with His glory. Ezekiel 43:2


The glory of God is yet again connected with His voice.
God’s glory, & majestic voice, radiating to & being reflected on the earth.
This time the voice that carries the impressive sound (the thunderous roar) of many waters.
It is pictured like a mighty waterfall. Think of the unceasing noise & also the awesome spectacle.
Here we have yet another majestic portrayal of the Lord’s voice, alongside His glory & sovereignty.
There is an infinite power, depth & unending quality & quantity to it. SELAH


His feet were like fine brass, as if refined in a furnace, and His voice as the sound of many waters; Revelation 1:15


This again is a representation of the glory of God as the apostle John pictures the risen exalted Christ.
Jesus, fully God & fully Man, speaks with the voice of many waters.
Again, we get the picture of a mighty awesome waterfall (cf. Revelation 14:2, 19:6).
The voice of many waters speaking to us of an unending freshness, freedom & flow to the voice of the
Lord.
The Lord’s voice & word brings constant life & refreshment to the ready hearer. Hallelujah!!

The Lord our God speaks & roars with the majestic voice of many waters.
That awesome, limitless voice is life & refreshment to the child of God.
It is the voice to get fully immersed in, letting it forever wash over you.
God speaks from heaven & His glory is reflected upon the earth.
He speaks to you & me & He speaks through you & me. SELAH Hallelujah!!!

For Reflection

  • How is God speaking to, & through, me right now?
  • In what ways am I discerning the glory of God radiating upon the earth?
  • Meditate upon the Lord’s voice of many waters.

A song related to this theme:


Prayer

Heavenly Father,
Thank you that Your voice sounds forth as many waters,
Roaring with power & strength as it flows unceasingly,
And thank you that it can be clearly heard by those who are seeking You.
Jesus thank you that You speak life & refreshment to Your people.
Holy Spirit lead & direct me to the waterfall that is the mighty majestic voice of the Lord,
So that it might freely & endlessly wash over me.
This I ask In Jesus mighty Name.
Amen
