Job 37 … Consider the Wonders of His Voice

“God thunders with His voice wondrously,
Doing great things which we cannot comprehend…

14 Listen to this, O Job,
Stand and consider the wonders of God,”
(37:5, 14).

I opened my Bible to chapter 37 with this thought in mind, “I can’t wait for tomorrow, when we will finally get to hear directly from God.” I have found myself longing to hear His Voice, not the assumptions and assessments of man. And I was happy to see statements referring to His Voice, repeated five times… and we know when God repeats Himself…well, let’s stand and consider the Wonders of His Voice!

Consider the Wonders of His Voice

  • The Wonders of His Voice are made known through His Works.
    •  “Listen closely to the thunder of His voice,
      And the rumbling that goes out from His mouth.
      “Under the whole heaven He lets it loose,
      And His lightning to the ends of the earth.
      “After it, a voice roars;
      He thunders with His majestic voice,
      And He does not restrain the lightnings when His voice is heard…
      10 “From the breath of God ice is made,
      And the expanse of the waters is frozen.
      11 “Also with moisture He loads the thick cloud;
      He disperses the cloud of His lightning,
      (37:2-4, 10-11).
    • By the word of the Lord the heavens were made,
      And by the breath of His mouth all their host…
      For He spoke, and it was done;
      He commanded, and it stood fast,
      (Psalm 33:6, 9).
  • The Wonders of His Voice are made known through His Wisdom.
    • “God thunders with His voice wondrously,
      Doing great things which we cannot comprehend…
      12 “It changes direction, turning around by His guidance,
      That it may do whatever He commands it
      On the face of the inhabited earth.
      13 “Whether for correction, or for His world,
      Or for lovingkindness, He causes it to happen…
      15 “Do you know how God establishes them,
      And makes the lightning of His cloud to shine?
      16 “Do you know about the layers of the thick clouds,
      The wonders of one perfect in knowledge,
      (37:5, 12-13, 15-16).
    • For the Lord gives wisdom;
      From His mouth come knowledge and understanding,
      (Proverbs 2:6).

    • Then the Lord answered Job out of the whirlwind and said, (Job 38:1).
    • Then the Lord answered Job out of the storm and said, (Job 40:6).
    • For this reason we also constantly thank God that when you received the word of God which you heard from us, you accepted it not as the word of men, but for what it really is, the word of God, which also performs its work in you who believe, (1 Thessalonians 2:13).
  • The Wonders of His Voice are made known through His Written Word
    • Only be strong and very courageous; be careful to do according to all the law which Moses My servant commanded you; do not turn from it to the right or to the left, so that you may have success wherever you go. This book of the law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it; for then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have success, (Joshua 1:8).
    • For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart, (Hebrews 4:12).
  • The Wonders of His Voice are made known through His Living Word
    • And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth, (John 1:14).
    • It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing; the words that I have spoken to you are spirit and are life, (John 6:63).
    • My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me; 28 and I give eternal life to them, and they will never perish; and no one will snatch them out of My hand, (John 10:27-28).
