“See that you do not refuse Him who speaks.” (Hebrews 12:25 NKJV)
See that you…
- do not refuse
- do not excuse
- do not avoid
- do not reject
- do not decline
- do not shun
…the voice of the LORD who speaks.
When God speaks to your heart and your inner man is moved to run to Him, do not brush Him off! Do not turn and run from Him. He is Almighty God. He is a consuming fire. (Hebrews 12:29). When He speaks, He thunders. He divides the thunder with bolts of flames of fire that we call lightning. The voice of the LORD is powerful. When He speaks, give the LORD the respect that He is due. He loves you. He sent His son to die for you and He is only calling you to your best life. The voice of the LORD changes everything.
“Give unto the LORD, O you mighty ones,
Give unto the LORD glory and strength.
2 Give unto the LORD the glory due to His name;
Worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness.
3 The voice of the LORD [is] over the waters;
The God of glory thunders;
The LORD [is] over many waters.
4 The voice of the LORD [is] powerful;
The voice of the LORD [is] full of majesty.
5 The voice of the LORD breaks the cedars,
Yes, the LORD splinters the cedars of Lebanon.
6 He makes them also skip like a calf,
Lebanon and Sirion like a young wild ox.
7 The voice of the LORD divides the flames of fire.
8 The voice of the LORD shakes the wilderness;
The LORD shakes the Wilderness of Kadesh.
9 The voice of the LORD makes the deer give birth,
And strips the forests bare;
And in His temple everyone says, “Glory!”
10 The LORD sat [enthroned] at the Flood,
And the LORD sits as King forever.
11 The LORD will give strength to His people;
The LORD will bless His people with peace.”
(Psalm 29:1-11 NKJV)
I enCOURAGE you with all that is in me to “see that you do not refuse Him who speaks.” The world is in the mess that we are in because beginning with Adam and Eve, they ignored the voice of the LORD. We have done the same. Thank God that He gives us grace upon grace, and chance upon chance to listen and obey His voice. Let’s turn the world around and listen to what Almighty God has to say. Don’t brush Him off one more time.
