Voice of God

Written by Boyd Bailey

Thoughts from daily Bible reading for today- August 26, 2012

The voice of the LORD is over the waters; the God of glory thunders, the LORD thunders over the mighty waters. Psalm 29:3

God’s voice has not vanished. He has not lost His voice because of overuse. His vocal cords are not strained. God does not cough or become congested. His voice is strong and intelligible. His voice is all around us, for us to listen to and be in awe of. Thunder and lightning display their glory in the heavens, but they are commissioned by Christ. They are natural phenomena, but they originate from the Almighty. Thunder appears from the most high and is independent from man. It is a work of God. It is the voice of God poetically, figuratively, and instructively. His voice through nature invites our awe and our attention. We hear His thunder and gaze heavenward in both fear and amazement. His voice reminds us of His glory. It is the glory of God that thunders from heaven in the heavens.

The glory of God governs the heavens. Electricity in itself is powerless. It is ignited by Almighty God. He is the source of light, heat, cold, and darkness. God is the creator and the sustainer of the earth. His creation continues because He continues to create. Just as human beings are an ongoing creation of the Lord, so the earth is the Lord’s ongoing creation. He resides in eternity but still engages with the earth. His glory has not been gutted by scientific explanations, only validated. We see God in the dark clouds and the upper water of rain, and we give Him credit for the lower water of the seas. Our Savior can be seen in the beauty of His creation. Christ can be seen in all corners of His creation. His voice is powerful and majestic. It cannot go unnoticed by any honest individual.

The power of His voice is illustrated in nature and applied in our life. His voice can be stern in discipline or tender in grace. Wise are His children who respond to both. The powerful voice of Jesus called Lazarus back from the dead, and upon His earthly death, interceded to His heavenly Father for forgiveness on behalf of His enemies. We do well to imitate Christ’s voice of faith and compassion. Use your voice to pray for people who are dead in their sin and in need of a softened heart toward their Savior, Jesus. Lift up your voice on behalf of others who have offended you and your friends. God hears your voice. He honors the voice of those who vicariously cry out on behalf of unbelievers. It may seem like you are a lone voice for the Lord, but you are not. God has His people around you.

God’s voice is majestic and regal. He is enthroned above all His creation. Jehovah Jesus is our King of Kings and Lord of Lords. When He speaks, we listen. His words matter most. The Holy Bible is the wisdom of His words in written form. His voice speaks through the pages of Scripture. So milk His meaning for you from His written word. Take what He tells you, and obediently apply it to your life; then tell others. Those of us who hear the voice of God cannot keep quiet. He speaks in the temple of His creation, and we speak in the temple of His worship, the church. The Body of Christ listens. We speak His name and He gives us strength. We speak His name and He gives us peace. Name the name of Christ for His glory and for your good. God desires to speak to us and through us. Therefore, be a clean instrument for His voice to be heard.

I considered that the best way to do this would be to connect to vape stores and cbd stores. I was really hoping if anyone could recommend a dependable web-site where I can purchase CBD Shops Marketing Lead List I am presently considering creativebeartech.com, theeliquidboutique.co.uk and wowitloveithaveit.com. On the fence which one would be the most suitable selection and would appreciate any support on this. Or would it be much simpler for me to scrape my own leads? Ideas?
