If the thunder roars, and should the lightning splash across the horizon, Or should the earth quake beneath our feet, is it God’s voice that we are longing for?
The loud sounds and great displays of natural lightning are not always indications that is talking. Most likely such awesome forces are simply the earth crying out and wanting to be delivered from the curse.
I tell you, it’s the curse in Eden from which the whole planet and universe long to be freed. Yes, the whole universe longs to be told once and for all, “Peace, be still!” Has it not been said that the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage of decay?
So when the storms of life are raging inside of us, it’s no different than the waves of the sea or the falling stars. We too are saying deep inside of our God created beings, far below the pride and beneath the self assurance, “Peace, be still” inside of me.
No, there is no need for God to speak loud for us to hear him, because he has a receiver Locked into the spirit of all mankind, fully capable of hearing his voice. And though God often gets ‘busy signals’ because we are so busy doing many things and listening to other voices, he seldom ceases to keep right on speaking.
There is no need to look to land, sea, or sky for the voice of God, if we would but ‘keep listening’ to the ‘sounds of God’, flowing through the receiver inside of us.
