Listening for God’s Voice, His Word Spoken, in all Creation


The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
Day after day they pour forth speech;
night after night they reveal knowledge.
They have no speech, they use no words;
no sound is heard from them.
Yet their voice goes out into all the earth,
their words to the ends of the world. (Psalm 19:1-4)


The child, awkwardly running in his baby waddle to catch the whirling snow, lifts his small hands to grasp the flakes-as they melt within his hand. Laughing, tilting his head back, mouth wide open, he tries to hold the flakes on his tongue—while they disappear  at his touch. These delicate intricacies, patterned with individual God-designs, cannot be captured and kept. Yet, the toddler persists in his quest, running and laughing with the wind, to hold the tiny droplets-for a moment.

What moments are we the child chasing after God’s creations? Do we remember the awe, the first view of snow, the first touch on the tongue?  The voice of God, Elohim the Creator, resounds in each individual flake and in each individual child. He speaks, “I AM.”

Do we hear Him when we plant the seeds in the furrows? Do we hear Him when wafts of lilac drift near? Do we hear Him when lightning sparks the sky? Do we hear Him when the first movement is felt in the womb? Do we hear Him when the birds sing? Do we hear Him when the sun bursts through the clouds in radiant glory? Do we hear the song, the rejoicing of God’s creation all around us?


11 Let the heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad;
let the sea resound, and all that is in it.
12 Let the fields be jubilant, and everything in them;
let all the trees of the forest sing for joy. (Psalm 96:11-12)


24 How many are your works, Lord!
In wisdom you made them all;
the earth is full of your creatures.
25 There is the sea, vast and spacious,
teeming with creatures beyond number—
living things both large and small. (Psalm 104: 24-25)


“But ask the animals, and they will teach you,
or the birds in the sky, and they will tell you;
or speak to the earth, and it will teach you,
or let the fish in the sea inform you.
Which of all these does not know
that the hand of the Lord has done this?
10 In His hand is the life of every creature
and the breath of all mankind. (Job 12: 7-10)

 Listen for the whisper of God. Hearken to the song of creation.

Hear God’s Word spoken all around us.
