Scripture Reference: Psalm 29:3-9
The voice of the Lord is more powerful than any problem we may ever experience. When the disciples were in the boat with Jesus and a very strong storm arose, they were terrified. They did not yet realize that the One in the boat with them has a voice that is more powerful than mighty waters.
In distress they woke up Jesus who was sleeping in the boat. “Lord, we are going to drown!” They were not prepared for what would happen next. With one word from the Lord, the sea grew completely calm –not a little calmer –but completely calm. Astonished they turned to each other and asked, “What kind of man is this? Even the winds and waves obey Him.”
All the powers of nature is subject to His voice because He is the Lord of all the earth. All things were created through Him and for Him: “For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together“ (Colossians 1:16-17). That is the reason the winds and waves obeyed His voice.
The voice of the LORD is over the waters;
the God of glory thunders,
the LORD thunders over the mighty waters.
The voice of the LORD is powerful;
the voice of the LORD is majestic.
In the same way, the Lord can strike down our troubles with one word from His mouth. His voice is more powerful than any force of nature. His voice can turn our desert-like fruitless life into a paradise. He has the power to lift up and to tear down. His voice brings joy to the hearts of the righteous. As we perceive His power in action in our lives, we too can cry with those in His temple: “Glory!”
And in his temple all cry, “Glory!”
