The Voice of the Most High
“The Lordthundered from heaven, and the Most High uttered His voice.
He sent out arrows and scattered them; lightning bolts, and He vanquished them. - 2 Samuel 22:14-15
David described the magnitude of God’s voice as He thundered from heaven. David wrote about the awesome power of God’s voice:
The voice of the Lordis over the waters; the God of glory thunders; the Lordis over many waters the voice of the Lordis powerful; the voice of the Lordis full of majesty. The voice of the Lordbreaks the cedars, yes, the Lordsplinters the cedars of Lebanon - (Psalm29:3-5).
David spent a lifetime listening and waiting to hear God’s voice. He needed guidance and direction. Through cultivating a relationship with God, David had the blessing of walking with God all the days of his life––He heard God when He spoke.
When Elijah had run away from Jezebel, who sought his life, his thoughts and mind were so troubled that he wished God to take his life! (1 Kings 19:2-5). In his discouragement he needed to hear from the Lord:
the Lordpassed by, and a great and strong wind tore into the mountains . . . but the Lordwas not in the wind; and after the wind an earthquake, but the Lordwas not in the earthquake; and after the earthquake a fire, but the Lordwas not in the fire; and after the fire a still small voice - (1 Kings 19:11-12).
Are you troubled, discouraged or in need of guidance? If you want to hear the voice of God you must remove all distractions. Find a place of solitude to sit quietly and prayerfully as you read His Word––then He will speak in a still small voice.
Be still, and know that I am God
