The Voice of the Lord

2012 | by Trent Hunter | Category: Sermon Follow-Up

In Sunday’s sermon, “The Voice of The Lord,” we considered how Psalm 29 tells us to see the God of all power behind a ferocious storm. With vivid poetic imagery, David writes, “The voice of the LORD is over the waters; the God of glory thunders, . . .The voice of the LORD breaks the cedars; . . .and in his temple all cry, ‘Glory!'” (3-9).

Psalm 29 is like other psalms in its use of nature to communicate the manifold glory of God on display in what He has made. Psalm 8, for example, speaks of “the moon and the stars” as set in place by God’s hand (3), and Psalm 19 speaks of the sun displaying His happiness, as it “runs its course with joy” (5).

With this in mind, these photos from a recent National Geographic photo contest are really pictoral descriptions of the glory of God:


“. . .and in and in his temple all cry, ‘Glory!'” (Psalm 29:9)
