The Voice Of God

The voice of God is thunderous.

It roars just like the sea.

Like skywriting across the heavens,

For all the world to see.

English: Daniel refusing the King's Food

God spoke this way for Daniel

In the writing on the wall,

And in the house of Cornelius, for Peter,

As he watched the Spirit fall.

*

The voice of God is gentle,

Loving, calm, quiet and kind,

Calling softly within our spirits

To leave the world behind.

God spoke this way for Elijah,

Prophet Elijah, Russian Orthodox icon from fir...

As the prophet pouted within the cave,

And also for the outcast Hagar,

That servant’s child to save.

*

The voice of God is like a trumpet,

Blasting clear and loud,

Rising like a battle cry

Above the world’s maddening crowd.

And the voice of God is like the cooing

god

Of a quiet and gentle dove,

Speaking to hearts that are lonely

Of His steadfast, unfailing love.

*

The voice of God is ever obvious

To the person He wants to use,

Though how He speaks is a decision

That’s God’s alone to choose.

God, the Father watches us all everywhere.

But the voice of God is never

A difficult thing to hear,

Because all God requires of His servants

Is an obedient heart and a listening ear.
