Have you ever stood near a babbling brook?
Heard the sound of a raging river?
Listened to the roar of a waterfall?
The prophet Ezekiel tells us this is much like the sound of the voice of God. For the Lord spoke to Him often in visions and dreams.
And here we have the description of the four living creatures in such a vision, which appeared in a whirlwind. Can you imagine the sound of these mighty wings? Each of the angelic creatures having four wings, two spread upward and two to cover their bodies. But as they flapped them they made this roar, like the commotion of a an army approaching.
Always at the ready for the Lord's command.
Waiting for the sound of the Almighty's voice.
For it may come soft like a babbling brook.
Or it may rage as the river rounding the bend.
Or roar as a waterfall pounding the rocks.
So let us listen for His voice
as it calls to our soul.
Remember that He is
our Living Water...
refreshing and restoring.
His feet were like fine bronze
as it is fired in a furnace, and
His voice like
the sound of cascading waters.
