Listening For God’s Voice

By  | 

LightningToday’s Scripture: “The voice of the LORD is over the waters; the God of glory thunders, the LORD thunders over the mighty waters. The voice of the LORD  is powerful; the voice of the LORD is majestic.” (Ps. 29:3-4 NIV)

This morning, as I lay in my bed listening to the roaring thunder, I imagine the flashings of lightening cutting across the dark skies. I remember the days of my youth, my siblings and I would compare the thunder and lightening to a fierce game of bowling that was taking place in heaven. As the bowling ball traveled down the lane, it made the loudest rolling sound, striking the pins as loudly as the thunder sounds. This was the best way that we knew to describe the loud and frightening sound of the roaring thunderstorm.

Psalm 29:3-4, describes the thunder as the voice of the LORD. His voice is as powerful, and as mighty now as in the days of old. Are you listening for His voice? Can you hear Him speaking? He is making His presence known. All of creation speaks of Him. Take notice and listen, He’s not that far away.

We come to know God by reading and meditating on His Word. By praying, praising and thanking Him for Who He is and for all that He’s done. Make it a daily habit to give God the glory that He alone deserves.

Blessings of my love to you!

    Hi Kamila,

    Jeanie, first of all you know I’m a huge fan of yours already. Loved how in the beginning you made it relatable to everyone because there are so many who as children compared thunder to bowling. Then you described the power of God and then how to tap into that power and talk to him. It’s always a good thing to relate to others then tell your story and tell how to obtain it. I love your writing… I can’t help but think that your words are God ordained and ordered. I’m sure that I will see books of yours for sale one day soon. Praise God! Love you!

    Wow sis! That was very well said & I got lost in your post. We all need to hear Gods voice & may he bless you tremendously for bringing his word to us 🙂 God bless you

      Hi Deisy, Thank you for your comment! You have really blessed me! I’m grateful that you enjoyed reading my very first article, and it blesses me that it resonated in your spirit. We definitely need to prepare ourselves and expect to hear God voice speaking to us. He is patiently waiting for us to spend along time with Him. I love it when He talks to me. Just hearing his voice assure me of His love. I get a new strength to that allows me to carry on. I never want to spend a day without God, that would be unbearable for me.
      Thank You Deisy! I appreciate you taking the time to read and comment on my article.
