“The voice of the Lord is over the waters;
The God of glory thunders,
The Lord, over many waters.
The voice of the Lord is powerful;
The voice of the Lord is full of majesty.
The voice of the Lord breaks the cedars;
The Lord breaks the cedars of Lebanon.
He makes Lebanon to skip like a calf,
And Sirion like a young wild ox.
The voice of the Lord flashes forth flames of fire.
The voice of the Lord shakes the wilderness;
The Lord shakes the wilderness of Kadesh.
The voice of the Lord makes the deer give birth
And strips the forests bare
And in His temple cry ‘Glory!’
The LORD sits enthroned over the flood; the Lord sits enthroned as king forever. May the Lord give strength to his people! May the Lord bless his people with peace!” Psalm 29
As I read that this morning I was so empowered. I was reminded that with all the “voices” that swirl around my reality in a day – my Father has a voice….and His voice is stronger and more powerful than any other voice. It seems like about this time of year lots of great things start moving…it’s holiday season, which is so fun..but that increases activities, money talk, travel, busy, busy, busy, and all in the middle of your already busy ‘normal’ lives…..voices. Don’t forget whose voice is louder….and don’t lose heart, be encouraged because I was reminded of what it says in Isaiah 62 this morning regarding God’s voice. He’s not afraid to keep using it….and He will not stop speaking power over His princess….
“For Zion’s (I want you to put your name where it says ‘Zion’ – because ultimately He’s talking about YOU) sake I will not keep silent, and for Jerusalem’s (put your name here too) sake I will not be quiet, until HER righteousness goes forth as brightness, and her salvation as a burning torch. The nations shall see your righteousness, and all the kings your glory, and you shall be called by a new name that THE MOUTH OF THE LORD WILL GIVE.” Isaiah 62:1-2
Tune in to the voice of the Father today. He’s speaking; we just need to listen - xoxo!
