Psalm 29:4 The voice of the LORD is powerful; the voice of the LORD is full of majesty.
In Psalm 29 King David reflects on the majesty and the power of God’s voice.
The world was formed by God’s powerful voice. David was mesmerised by the beauty of creation and how God’s voice created the waters, the lands and all within and upon them.
Hearing the voice of God is the key to faith.
2 Corinthians 10:17 says “Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the WORD OF CHRIST.” These last three words are the most important three words in this sentence because it is faith in God you want. Faith does not come through hearing powerful motivational messages – all these will do is build up your faith in YOU.
Faith in the Word of God is what produces the power of the gospel in your life.
And it was this same reflection and meditation upon the voice of God every day that built David into the warrior of faith he became. He defeated a bear and a lion which developed his faith on the way to his ultimate battle with Goliath, paving the way for him to become king.
David was a man who meditated upon God’s word. That word meditate in the Hebrew is ‘hagar’ meaning to speak, ponder, murmur, roar, declare. Meditation is literally ‘speaking’ God’s word and that’s what activates faith in God’s word.
Today, God’s voice is just as powerful. However, you are now the mouth-piece.
God’s word needs to be in our hearts so it can be on our lips. We need to speak, prophesy and declare to our world around us the plans, purposes and the will of God. God’s word is wisdom for your life and it will create God’s purposes in your life the same way it did for David.
Isaiah understood this powerful truth. He says in Isaiah 55:10
10 As the rain and the snow
come down from heaven,
and do not return to it
without watering the earth
and making it bud and flourish,
so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater,
11 so is my word that goes out from my mouth:
It will not return to me empty,
but will accomplish what I desire
and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.
Declare in faith and boldness the word of God and watch it come to pass in your life.
Today declare God’s word of healing over your body, provision and purpose over your job, declare you are an anointed son or daughter of God. When you do this you are voicing God’s Word over your life – and it’s just as powerful as God Himself declaring it over you.
