Day by Day with Martin Luther

Read: 2nd Chronicles 21:1-23:21 Romans 11:13-36 Proverbs 20:7

“When God Speaks”

“For he spoke, and it came to be; He commanded, and it stood firm.”
[Psalm 33:9]

But what, or in what manner will He speak? Here we must observe the Hebrew way of expression. For when Scripture says that God speaks, it understands a word related to a real thing or action, not just a sound. For God does not have a mouth or tongue, since He is a spirit. Scripture does record: “He spoke and it came to be” [Psalm 33:9]. And when He speaks, the mountains tremble, kingdoms are scattered, and the whole earth is moved. That is a language that is different than ours. When the sun rises, when the sun sets, God is speaking. When the fruit grows in size, when we are born, it is God speaking. God’s Words are empty air floating around the universe. When God said: “Let there be a sun, let there be a moon, let the earth bring forth trees,…” as soon as He said it, it was done. No one heard his voice, but it was done. God’s “voice” is His love in action.
