The Sound Of God’s Voice


 John 10:27

My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me.

On October 7th, I posted “God Sings For You.” One of the comments got me to thinking about how beautiful the sound of God’s voice is. I had not really thought about what His voice sounds like before. Does God sound like James Earl Jones, or is He soft-spoken, or does it depend on the circumstance? Perhaps God’s voice sounds like the sweetest music you have never heard before. 

Exodus 19:19

As the sound of the trumpet grew louder and louder, Moses spoke and the voice of God answered him.

The more I think about it, the more I think God allows us to hear His voice through other people. I think I’ve heard God’s voice when the doctors and nurses helped my son when he was in ICU. I heard God’s voice when friends prayed for us. I heard God’s voice when someone offered congratulations to me. I know I heard God’s voice when my newborn baby started to cry.

We can hear God in nature also, if we listen. Consider the last beautiful day. Were you too busy to stop and enjoy God for a moment? He was there, in the gentle breeze, in water cascading down rocks, and in the sounds of birds tucked away in the trees.

Psalm 50:1

The Mighty One, God, the Lord,
speaks and summons the earth
from the rising of the sun to where it sets.

Psalm 29:3

The voice of the Lord is over the waters;
the God of glory thunders,
the Lord thunders over the mighty waters.

Ezekiel 43:2

and I saw the glory of the God of Israel coming from the east. His voice was like the roar of rushing waters, and the land was radiant with his glory.

I think we can hear God’s voice if we will just stop to listen. It’s the sound of everything beautiful and good.

If we can hear God, perhaps there are circumstances where we can touch God also. But that’s another post.

Many blessings on your day.

  1. Amos said, “The Lord roars from Zion…” (Amos 1.2). From what else Amos said, I think he meant for us to understand that the Lord roars like a lion! Now, that will get your attention.

    You have an excellent point, that the situation determines how the Lord speaks, because in the case of Elijah, the Lord did not roar, but whispered in a still small voice! That likewise, will get your attention.
