“Honor the Lord, you heavenly beings; honor the Lord for his glory and strength. Honor the Lord for the glory of his name. Worship the Lord in the splendor of his holiness. The voice of the Lord echoes above the sea. The God of glory thunders. The Lord thunders over the mighty sea. The voice of the Lord is powerful; the voice of the Lord is majestic. The voice of the Lord splits the mighty cedars; the Lord shatters the cedars of Lebanon. He makes Lebanon’s mountains skip like a calf; he makes Mount Hermon leap like a young wild ox. The voice of the Lord strikes with bolts of lightning. The voice of the Lord makes the barren wilderness quake; the Lord shakes the wilderness of Kadesh. The voice of the Lord twists mighty oaks and strips the forests bare. In his Temple everyone shouts, “Glory!” The Lord rules over the floodwaters. The Lord reigns as king forever. The Lord gives his people strength. The Lord blesses them with peace.” Psalms 29:1-11 NLT
This passage talks about the voice of God. The power of his voice is greater than that of a king commanding his forces. He rules over us and gives us strength. Unlike a human king he is perfect and deserving of all praise. His voice is familiar and can create or destroy with a word. With his voice he spoke us into existence and with his voice he can erase us. In your day to day lives remember how God used and uses his voice and use your own voice the same. Every part of our lives and abilities should be used for God. Each word we say should be carefully crafted. We can see God as he establishes, tears down, builds up, condemns, encourages, as well obliterates, and creates with a purpose of justice, reconciliation, and love. We always need to seek out his still, small, and meek voice and submit our own voice to it. He is always there speaking light into the darkness and we need to listen for it. In our everyday lives what we see, what we do, and everything in between we can see God at work. Wait for God and submit to his plan. Our actions and voice should be consistent as God is in everything he does.
