Psalm 29:3-6
The voice of the Lord is over the waters; the God of glory thunders, the Lord thunders over the mighty waters.
The voice of the Lord is powerful; the voice of the Lord is majestic.
The voice of the Lord breaks the cedars; the Lord breaks in pieces the cedars of Lebanon.  He makes Lebanon leap like a calf, Sirion like a young wild ox.
We see and are surrounded by many social, political and personal issues that cry out for justice for the injustices that are suffered in our world today.
There seems to be no hope for the trials and environmental woes that have infested and affected us.  But there is one whose voice remains the same and is loud and powerful!
The voice of the Lord is a powerful force.  When we take time out to listen, allowing Him to speak, hear His voice and give Him glory the surrounding voices take a back seat.
His voice is the Word of God given to us to decree and declare over our circumstances. His voices brings liberty, freedom and deliverance. His voice is our hope!
Psalm 29:7-9
The voice of the Lord strikes with flashes of lightning.  The voice of the Lord shakes the desert; the Lord shakes the Desert of Kadesh.
The voice of the Lord twists the oaks and strips the forest bare. 
And in his temple all cry, “Glory!”
Have a blessed week.

And Jesus, walking by the Sea of Galilee, saw two brothers, Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea; for they were fishermen.  Then He said to them, “Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men.” They immediately left their nets and followed Him.  Matthew 4:18-20

Jesus is calling! Jesus is calling us to move away from areas of comfort and familiarity into the destiny He has purposed for our lives. Many of us have held on to old ways and old mind sets and have settled for the ordinary.  When Jesus called Simon Peter and his brother Andrew and many of the other disciples, I’m sure they didn’t know how much they would be impacted by following Jesus. They left behind what was comfortable not knowing that their lives would be forever changed, and they will forever change lives. I feel that the Lord is saying that many of us have put on hold the dreams that He has deposited in our hearts.  Many have visions and aspirations and left them on the side of the road like an abandoned car that has died.  It’s time to get out the jumper cables and recharge those dreams.  Jesus is calling us to listen to His voice and heed the call.  There’s much work to do for His Kingdom!

Have a blessed week.
