Genesis 31:27-30(MSG); Why did you run off like a thief in the night? Why didn’t you tell me? Why, I would have sent you off with a great celebration–music, timbrels, flutes! But you wouldn’t permit me so much as a kiss for my daughters and grandchildren. It was a stupid thing for you to do. If I had a mind to, I could destroy you right now, but the God of your father spoke to me last night, ‘Be careful what you do to Jacob, whether good or bad.’ I understand. You left because you were homesick. But why did you steal my household gods?”
The voice of the living God can penetrate the most impervious of consciences in order to secure your salvation.
His voice has the ability to breach the barriers of uttermost spiritual indifference to save you from the schemes of the enemy.
You do not have to despair that those against you care nothing about God; that they are a law unto themselves; that they boast of themselves as “gods” among men weaving all imaginable forms of power.
It doesn’t matter. Your situation is not any different from that of Jacob hotly pursued by Laban, a worshipper of other gods aside from the God of Israel.
Laban’s apparent idolatry notwithstanding, when Jehovah needed to deliver a stern warning about how to treat Jacob, he [Laban], had no choice but to take serious heed.
Understand this, child of God–whether those fighting you bow to the moon, stars, the sun or some tree, when YOUR GOD speaks, THEY WILL LISTEN!
NO MAN, believer or non-believer, atheist or polytheist, realist or materialist, faithful or faithless, dead or alive is beyond the reach of God’s voice.
That voice will command the least God-fearing men to open doors for you; it will give them sleepless nights for your sake; it will require and demand their favour on your behalf.
Rest assured, HE SPEAKS FOR YOU!

GOLDEN NUGGET: NO MAN, believer or non-believer, atheist or polytheist, realist or materialist, faithful or faithless, dead or alive is beyond the reach of God’s voice. That voice will command the least God-fearing men to open doors for you; it will give them sleepless nights for your sake; it will require and demand their favour on your behalf.
PRAYER: My Lord, I thank You for this great word. What a blessed assurance to know that no man or circumstance is above the command of Your voice. The waves and winds hear You and calm down for my sake. I fear no storm and no man because I know they all hear You. In Jesus’ name, Amen!
