The Voice of the Lord 

“The voice of the Lord is upon the waters: the God of glory thundereth.” Psalms 29:3

Some people think it’s a waste of time to simply sit at God’s feet and listen. It is not a waste of time to wait on God any more than a woodchopper is wasting time when he sharpens his axe.

Charles Hummel wrote a booklet entitled “Tyranny of the Urgent.” In it, he said:  

  • When we fail to wait prayerfully for God’s guidance and strength we are saying, with our actions if not our lips, that we do not need Him….  
  • Prayerful waiting on God is indispensable to effective service. Like the time-out in a football game, it enables us to catch our breath and fix new strategy…  
  • The need is not the call. The call must come from the Lord who knows our limitations.

Psalms 29. Count how many times the phrase, the “voice of the Lord” is repeated. Spend at least that many minutes listening for His voice and trusting He will speak His will to you.
