Word of God Speak

Wednesday, July 20, 2011
After a short night of sleep, I was lying in my bed in the quiet of the day and thinking.  Out of my “not so spiritual” thoughts, I heard the Holy Spirit speak to me and tell me to read in the book of Psalm.  I sat up, grabbed my reading glasses, which I need most during the first part of the morning, took my Bible off of my night stand, and opened it up to the book of Psalm.  I had no idea where to begin.  I have read the book several times but I was not in the mood to read something like, “Come, let us sing joy for the Lord; let us shout aloud to the Rock of salvation.  Let us come before Him with thanksgiving and extol Him with music and song.”  ……or “Sing to the Lord a new song, sing to the Lord all the earth.  Sing to the Lord; praise His name; proclaim His salvation day after day.  Declare His glory among the nations, His marvelous deeds among all peoples.”  These are words I have heard my whole life in church during the “Call to Worship” portion of the service.  I bowed my head, closed my eyes, and the words, “Word of God speak” came out of my mouth.  While my eyes were still closed, I heard, and felt, a page turn, literally.  I opened my eyes and before me was Psalm 71.  Not knowing exactly where the Holy Spirit was taking me, I decided to read the whole chapter. After reading the first 11 verses, He supplied a prayer, again.  Verse 12 says, “Be not far from me, O God; come quickly, O my God to help me.”  Then, finally, in verse 29, He also supplied me with a promise and a word of encouragement. “Though You have made me see troubles, many and bitter, you will restore my life again; from the depths of the earth You will again bring me up.  You will increase my honor and comfort me again.”  I felt the reminder "And Yet", pull at my heart.  In spite of everything, He is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow.  His word endures forever.  These words I had just read were just as much for me as they were for David.


I wasn’t sure why I said, “Word of God speak” because I had never done that before, but it rose up out of me from somewhere deep in my spirit.   After reading the scriptures, a song came to my remembrance by Mercy Me called, “Word of God Speak”.  Michael had sung it in church before while leading worship.  God is into the details of my life…(He is into yours too.)

Word of God Speak
 By Mercy Me

I'm finding myself at a loss for words
And the funny thing is it's okay
The last thing I need is to be heard
But to hear what You would say

[CHORUS]
Word of God speak
Would You pour down like rain
Washing my eyes to see
Your majesty
To be still and know
That You're in this place
Please let me stay and rest
In Your holiness
Word of God speak

I'm finding myself in the midst of You
Beyond the music, beyond the noise
All that I need is to be with You
And in the quiet hear Your voice

[REPEAT CHORUS 2x]

I'm finding myself at a loss for words
And the funny thing is it's okay
