Let Me Hear Your Voice
by Laura Hackett Park

Have you ever felt like your voice didn’t matter? As if no one was going to listen, no matter what you said, and you couldn’t change anything anyway by speaking up? We live in a time where there is such a deluge of sound hitting the airways. There are so many platforms for opinions and individual expression that adding to the cacophony can feel pointless at times.

I have felt this as a musician and songwriter. Should I get my songs out when the music industry is already flooded with so many new songs and talent? I believe the debilitating feeling that no one is listening is a universal one that living in our generation has exacerbated.

In the book of Revelation, Jesus’ resurrected voice is described as the sound of mighty ocean waves (Revelation 1:15 ( https://email.ihopkc.org/2Y4D-U2NB-4C99DI-HH5S5-0/c.aspx )). The sound of many waters fills the full sound spectrum and hits the human ear (and beyond). Rushing water has all the high, mid, and low sound waves that make up the sound spectrum. This simple acoustic data is deeply symbolic to me. The voice of Jesus is full, powerful, and complete, lacking nothing. His sound can reach every creature in all of heaven and earth. Our bodies still reverberate with the energy of His sound that spoke us into being.

With so much power at His disposal, it is a wonder that He can “bend His ear” to listen to an individual. “This poor man cried out, and the Lord heard him” (Psalm 34:6 ( https://email.ihopkc.org/2Y4D-U2NB-4C99DI-HH5S6-0/c.aspx )). What?! God will listen to the voice of one individual out of billions of people! Scripture tells us that He not only hears but also wants to listen to His beloved people.
