I don’t know about you but when I think of the voice of the Lord, it’s along the lines of Elijah’s encounter with the still, small voice. But Psalm 29 gives another picture of God’s voice. The writer of the psalm, King David, compares it to a thunderstorm.
The power of God’s voice is like thunder and lightning echoing through the heavens. The earth — from the mountains to the barren wilderness — shakes. The mighty cedars and oaks twist, split, and are stripped bare. Now that’s one powerful voice.
Have you ever had times when you felt battered by the storms in your life? When your life was shaken to the core. When things were twisted and split and stripped bare? A broken marriage. A wayward child. Not enough money to pay the rent. The word cancer or some other disease. The uncertainty of the future.
That’s when it’s time to focus not only on the power in the Lord’s voice but the MAJESTY as well. And to shout “GLORY!” as the thunder rolls.
