Sustenance from the archives+: Voice

Sustenance from the archives+ (35)

The Lord reigns, He is clothed with majesty;
The Lord is clothed,
He has girded Himself with strength.
Surely the world is established, so that it cannot be moved.
Your throne is established from of old;
You are from everlasting.

The floods have lifted up, O Lord,
The floods have lifted up their voice;
The floods lift up their waves.
The Lord on high is mightier
Than the noise of many waters,
Than the mighty waves of the sea.

(Psalm 93:1-4, NKJV)

I hear the floods, ABBA.
I hear the floods of uncertainty, division, hatred, discrimination, pain, exclusion, and racism.
I hear their voices, ABBA, even within Your House.
I hear the voices, ABBA, echoing through the years.
But it is Your voice that I choose to give my undivided attention.
It is Your voice that matters.
Because You, the LORD on high,
You are mightier than the noise of many waters.
Than the mighty waves of every sea.
You, LORD, sat enthroned at the Flood, 
And You, Lord sit as King forever.
You, Lord will give strength to Your people;
You, Lord will bless Your people with peace. 

The voice of the Lord is over 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 full of majesty.

The voice of the Lord breaks the cedars,
Yes, the Lord splinters the cedars of Lebanon.
He makes them also skip like a calf,
Lebanon and Sirion like a young wild ox.
he voice of the Lord
divides the 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 give birth,
And strips the forests bare;
And in His temple everyone says, “Glory!”

 The Lord sat enthroned at the Flood,
And the Lord sits as King forever.
The Lord will give strength to His people;
The Lord will bless His people with peace.

(Psalm 29:3-11, NKJV).
