If you want the voice of God, as described in Psalms 29:3-9, to manifest itself through you, what is required? If you look at Psalm 29 as a whole you’ll find in the first two verses the psalmist is worshipping God. In the last two verses, he again affirms truths about our great and glorious God.
Worship is an essential element in preparing our hearts for ministry. This is a vital part of having a healthy relationship with God. One who is in tune with God is prepared to be a clear channel for the powerful voice of God to be heard through them. Therefore, it’s important for us as Christians to spend time in God’s presence to reflect on who He is.
Then do what the psalmist did: “Ascribe to the Lord, oh mighty ones, ascribe to the Lord glory and strength. Ascribe to the Lord the glory due His name. Worship the Lord in the splendor of His holiness. Recognize that the Lord sits enthroned over the flood. The Lord is enthroned as King forever. The Lord gives strength to His people. The Lord blesses His people with peace.” When we wait in His presence and worship the Lord He prepares us so He can work in and through us. We need to spend time meditating on His Word so it becomes a part of our thought-life. We need to pray that His word might be lived out in our behavior. Then, when we speak for Him, He will make His voice impact those who listen.
Reflect on Psalm 29 and allow it to speak to you so that you become a spokesperson through whom the voice of God is heard.
