Words from the Heart for Tuesday October 16th, 2018
The voice of the Lord is over the waters; The God of glory thunders; The Lord is over many waters.
Psalm 29:3 (NKJV)
This word-picture from Psalm 29 takes us right back to “the beginning.” The voice of the Lord saying “Let there be…” changed the total landscape of the universe. His voice is not silent. His voice is not finished. He will speak today in many different ways to us that will reveal His might and power. His written Word will always keep us on track. Ask Him to increase your hearing of His voice.
Canada has some of the most challenging weather on the planet. For example, St. John’s Newfoundland suffers through the most days of heavy rain or snow, at 21 a year. Two New Brunswick cities rank a close second and third for wicked weather. St. John puts up with 19 days of heavy precipitation annually and nearly four days of violent wind. Moncton sustains 16 severely wet or snowy days, plus six windy days. Windsor Ontario has the most thunderstorms – 33 days a year.
The ancients saw the hand of God everywhere. They were aware of God’s role in nature and they recognized God’s voice in all that took place. In the thunderstorms, they heard the voice of God speak with authority. The Psalmist put it this way in Psalm 29:3: “The voice of the Lord is over the waters; The God of glory thunders; The Lord is over many waters.” We live in a day when we have, in many respects, lost our sense of mystery of God’s presence in His creation. But God’s Word always reminds us that God does speak into our world and into our lives. He is genuinely concerned with what is happening in His creation. We ought to see His presence in all that He has made. From the majesty of the great snow peaked mountains to the vast oceans and life supplying rivers, God speaks into this world. Don’t miss hearing His voice in all that you experience of His world today. His desire is to break into your day today when you least expect Him to. How can you prepare yourself to hear Him speak into your life today?
These have been words from the heart.
