The “true” voice (Psalm 29

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. Psalm 29:3-4

Every day they fill our airways of communication.  We hear them on the streets and in our homes. They fill the night sky in villages around the world. Each day our minds are bombarded by their activity.

What am I writing about?  Answer, “the voices of people and the voice of the enemy, Satan himself.”

In Psalm 29 the author is singing the praises of one voice.  The voice which has given His people victory over their enemies.  This voice is none other than the voice of our God!!!

The Psalmist directs us to do the following:

  • To worship the voice of the Lord.
  • To listen to the voice of the Lord.
  • To obey the voice of the Lord.

Brothers and sisters, this seems so easy in theory.  However, in practice this is much more difficult.  The difficulty is there because of the multitude of voices pulling at us from day-to-day.

Consider the following:

  • The power of His voice is strong, Vs: 3-9.  God spoke the world in existence.  He speaks life into all things.  He alone has the power of destruction.
  • The purpose of His voice is clear, Vs: 10-11.  He gives strength to His people.

Question:  Have you heard His voice today?

Here are 4 ways to hear His voice:

  1. We hear His voice as we read the Word of God (the Bible), John 1:1-5.
  2. We hear His voice through others, II Timothy 4:1 “Preach the Word.”
  3. We hear His voice through dreams and visions, Acts 2:23-28.
  4. We hear His voice through circumstances, Acts 16:9-10.

There is one word of warning here.  Ways 2-4 must always align with God’s Word.  This is how you know ways 2-4 are really from God.

Question:  Are you obeying what God has said?

13 For it is not the hearers of the law who are righteous before God, but the doers of the law who will be justified.  Romans 2:13

Father Lead us to both hear and obey your voice today!!!
