|Psalm 29, various verses– inspirational content by Saocv(m): Sat Aug 2019 07:51am|
The voice of the LORD is upon the waters; The God of glory thunders, The LORD is over many waters.
The voice of the LORD is powerful, The voice of the LORD is majestic.
The voice of the LORD breaks the cedars; Yes, the LORD breaks in pieces the cedars of Lebanon.
The voice of the LORD hews out flames of fire.
The voice of the LORD shakes the wilderness; The LORD shakes the wilderness of Kadesh. The voice of the LORD makes the deer to calve And strips the forests bare; And in His temple everything says, “Glory”
The cedars of Lebanon were sturdy trees up to 130 feet tall. It would take a mighty voice to break those!
But then there is this voice: “Then He said, “Go out, and stand on the mountain before the LORD.” And behold, the LORD passed by, and a great and strong wind tore into the mountains and broke the rocks in pieces before the LORD, but the LORD was not in the wind; and after the wind an earthquake, but the LORD was not in the earthquake; 12 and after the earthquake a fire, but the LORD was not in the fire; and after the fire a still small voice.” (1 Kings 19:11-12)
The LORD breaks rocks! He topples cedars! He quakes the earth! The LORD is mighty, there is no doubt about that. But He is a personal God, too. He is not remote, dwelling on Olympus remotely and capriciously messing up men’s affairs for their own entertainment’s sake.
He is with us, that is His name: Emmanuel, God with us! When He wants to speak to our soul, to our heart, He speaks in a still small voice. He is loving of all humanity and He seeks to speak to us in the quiet of our hearts via the scriptures. To hear Him, though, a person should be quiet themselves. “But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.” (Matthew 6:6)
Though we pride ourselves these days on multitasking, we are really overdue for a de-cluttering. Multitasking simply means that we mask God’s voice.
All that noise drowns out God’s still, small voice by distracting us from His word. When we start listening to other things besides God then the still small voice that penetrates the clutter will be satan’s, hissing, “Hath God really said…?” Once our ears are plugged up with noise, then our eyes are taken off God and we drift away from the straight and narrow path. Get your attention away from the tumult of the natural and unnatural world, and carve out a quiet space to listen to God by reading your bible. One way we do that is in the prayer closet. When you pray, you talk, but then how much do you listen for a response? Do you stay in a pose of quiet contemplation, focusing on the attributes of God while you wait on Him? Or is there music going on in the background? Television? Is your cell phone on?
Another way to hear His still, small voice is by reading the Word. Again, make sure the tumult is off. Read, and when you feel an impression, or when it seems that you want to ponder a verse for a while, it may indeed be the still small voice calling attention to a deeper truth He wants to impart from what he has already revealed.
I’m amazed by the speed and noise of our world today. When I was little, 40-35 years ago, the number one television program was Little House on the Prairie. If you watch it now, it seems unbearably slow and too stodgy and quiet. That is because it isn’t fast-paced, it didn’t have jazzy music and the editing preferred long slow scenes instead of quick cuts. But 35 years ago was not that long ago. Nowadays if something isn’t happening on the tv, DVD, Playstation, Wii, cell phone or twitter it seems like life has stopped.
Our God is a personal God. He speaks to us in the quiet. Shhh.
I feel that the greatest opportunity for doing
is the opportunity to do more.
So then, as we have opportunity,
let us do good to everyone.
Slow down the mouth,
and speed up the ears.
Listen to advice and accept instruction,
that you may gain wisdom in the future.
The first duty of love is
Listen my beloved brothers, has not God chosen
those who are poor in the world to be rich in faith,
and heirs of the Kingdom, which He has
promised to those who love him?
It is in the quiet crucible of your personal private sufferings that your noblest Dreams are born and God’s greatest gifs are given in compesation for whatyouhave been through..”IT IS WELL”
Building Blocks of LIFE
THE BUILDING BLOCKS OF LIFE
Your thoughts are the building blocks of life. You build your future thought by thought.
Most people are clueless about how to make a life. For them, life just happens. From the time they get up in the morning to the time they go to bed at night, they are adrift on an Ocean of Ignorance. They don’t design their life; it simply happens by default. They lose the opportunity to build the life of their dreams.
A few people build their lives on great thoughts. These folks know that the thoughts they put into their mind create the foundation for their dreams. Life happens one thought at a time, and they want to choose their thoughts.
These are the types of thoughts that they select:
1. Thoughts of excellence
2. Thoughts of love
3. Thoughts of joy
4. Thoughts of greatness
5. Thoughts of abundance
6. Thoughts of God’s favor and love
7. Thoughts of strength
8. Positive thoughts
These are the building blocks for their lives. It’s no wonder that they live their dreams, because these are the thoughts from which dreams are made.
Don’t waste your life in default mode. The thought factory is always open, and you can select any type of thoughts. Choose your thoughts well and make your life into an awesome adventure.
There is no limit to how good your life can become.
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” Marianne Williamson
“Destiny is not a matter of chance, but of choice. Not something to wish for, but to attain.”
— William Jennings Bryan
“Surround yourself with the best people you can find, delegate authority, and don’t interfere as long as the policy you’ve decided upon is being carried out.”
— Ronald Reagan
