Whose voice then shook the earth (continuation)
Shared by Jeff Rowland.
We shared last time a beautiful scripture from Psalms – Psalms 29.
This Psalm of David is a beautiful description of the majesty and power of God in a storm of thunder. David’s perspective of viewing this storm was to acknowledge and ascribe the power of this storm to the voice of God. The Psalmist has already given acknowledgement to the God of thunder earlier in his writing. (Psa 18:13)
The LORD also thundered in the heavens, and the Highest gave his voice; hail stones and coals of fire. From the voice of God comes the power of the storm. When the thunder comes there is always the sound of accompanying rain.
(Jer 10:13) When he uttereth his voice, there is a multitude of waters in the heavens, and he causeth the vapours to ascend from the ends of the earth; he maketh lightnings with rain, and bringeth forth the wind out of his treasures.
Should we not listen to the voice of God in the middle of the storm? Should we not give honor and glory which is due to His name when we experience the storm?
(Job 37:4) After it a voice roareth: he thundereth with the voice of his excellency; and he will not stay them when his voice is heard.
God will not deceive by His voice, for when He hath spoken then will men hear what He is saying clearly. The Psalmist David is saying in this Psalm that the powerful and majestic God thunders with his voice and breaks the great cedars of Lebanon. Trees that can grow to be bigger than any other can be broken like twigs at the voice of our great God.
Paul the apostle said to the Church of Corinth,
(1Co 2:4) And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power.
When Gods people begin to thunder with our voice under the anointing of the Spirit of God then we can begin to uproot those things in our lives that holds us back from the awesome glory and majesty of our great God. James and John was called the sons of thunder indicating their voice of the gospel was heard clearly under the anointing of Christ Jesus. Oh how our voice needs to be raised in these days to clearly speak forth what God is uttering from heaven.
