The Voice of God

The Voice of God
"The sound of the wings of the cherubim could be heard from the outer court, like the sound of the sovereign God when he speaks."(Ezekiel 10:5, NET Bible)
I love being in the mountains among the pines. The air smells so fresh and my footsteps are nearly silent as I tread lightly upon golden needles. The barest of whispers follows me as I wander. Then the wind blows through the pine boughs in that breathtaking roar. I stand, frozen. For I know my Lord has just passed by and I dare not hide yet my fear, my awe, envelopes me. My heart leaps for joy inside of me. Alas, I must take another step. Come Lord Jesus. Come quickly.
Such is the presence of the Lord. How better to describe His voice than the sound of wind created by angels' wings? Is that what it sounds like in the Holy of Holies? Is that the euphoria that we will experience for eternity when Christ returns us to our Home? Today's passage is such a magnificent verse. It's a glimpse into eternity like we rarely receive even in the Bible.
God's voice is the like the sound of mighty angels' wings. It's the wind at the top of the pines, the roar of a waterfall, a tsunami, a sand storm, a tornado, a hurricane, a back-draft, a mother's laboring moans. We must never forget that He is sovereign in all creation. The Lord Almighty is Lord of all.
What is it, today, that is at the forefront of your mind? Give it to God. Are you thankful for all that He has graciously given to you? Praise Him. Do you wonder if you have enough food for yourself and your family until the end of the week? God can and will provide. Is something troubling you? Take it before your King and He will find the best solution for you. Whatever it is that needs His attention (and doesn't everything?), let God, your sovereign King execute His position by attending to it. Let His will reign in your life, and watch the changes unfold in power and joy!
Come Lord Jesus. Come. Reign in our lives as you want to. Yours is the power and the glory, forever and ever. AMEN.
Let God take His rightful place as the Lord of your entire life. You'll be glad you did.
