Voice of the Lord

 3The voice of the LORD is upon the waters: the God of glory thundereth: the LORD is upon many waters.
 4The voice of the LORD is powerful; the voice of the LORD is full of majesty.
 5The voice of the LORD breaketh the cedars; yea, the LORD breaketh the cedars of Lebanon.
 6He maketh them also to skip like a calf; Lebanon and Sirion like a young unicorn.
 7The voice of the LORD divideth the flames of fire.
 8The voice of the LORD shaketh the wilderness; the LORD shaketh the wilderness of Kadesh.
 9The voice of the LORD maketh the hinds to calve, and discovereth the forests: and in his temple doth every one speak of his glory. 

The Voice of the Lord

The voice of the LORD is powerful; the voice of the LORD is full of majesty. . . . and in his temple doth every one speak of his glory.

We are first introduced to the voice of the Lord in Genesis 1: Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light.  And God saw the light, that it was good; and God divided the light from the darkness.  God called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night. So the evening and the morning were the first day. 

Each day progresses with, Then God said. The results were this phenomenal place we call planet Earth. This same God who spoke this world into existence, continues to speak daily events that are occurring all over this entire planet.

The voice of the Lord speaks, and the hurricanes foam over the seas and the thunderstorms crash and roll over the earth. The voice of the Lord speaks and the lilies blossom in the fields, and the birds sing their lovely melodies. Is this presuming too much? Is God truly that active in the momentary events of this world?

Yes, He is! Not only is God actively involved in the momentary events of this world, but He is also actively involved in the daily events in our own personal lives. Man has achieved much, especially in the last 200 years, but nothing that man has ever done or ever will do will circumvent the plans of God. Yet, He still cares when the struggles of life wreak havoc in the lives of His children.

Let us remember, in the daily busyness of life, to return to our First Love, the Lord Jesus Christ. As we observe life seeming to spin out of control all around us, let us remember that the voice of the Lord holds everything in place, and moves all things along His predetermined path.

Yes, the voice of the Lord is powerful and full of majesty. May all of His saints fall down before Him and speak of His glory. Let us go, today, in the glory of the Lord, assured that He is living and actively involved in even the innermost details of our lives.

What an amazing God we have!

God Bless You,
