When Sound Travels Faster than Light

Science will tell you light travels faster than sound. Sound travels at a mere 332 meters per second (depending on various factors) or 1,176 feet per second. I say, “mere” because light travels at an astounding 300,000 KILOMETERS per second, or 186,000 miles per second. Einstein’s theory posed that nothing was faster than the speed of light.

While light does indeed travel faster than sound, when it comes to God, the SOUND of His Word preceded the very existence of LIGHT. God spoke, and then the light came forth! Hebrews tells us, “Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.”

So God’s Word will always outpace, or precede the light. When being tempted by the devil Jesus reminded his foe that, “Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.” 

Trust the Voice of the Shepherd – The Light is on the way!

Matter will not take shape. Answers will not come. And, Light will not shine unless the mouth of God has ordained it as such – The sound of God’s voice always precedes, takes precedence, or priority over things that appear.

As it was in the Beginning, so it shall be in our day-to-day walk with God. He said, “Let there be light,” and the light broke forth. Sound preceded light!

That’s why even during the dark times, we must walk by faith not by sight and trust the sound of the Shepherd’s voice…the light is on its way.

If God gave you a word or a promise, you can rest assured, the light is on its way!

John 1:1-4, In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 The same was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. 4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men. 5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

God Can Sympathize

For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are–yet was without sin. Heb. 4:15. The shortest verse in the Bible, yet very profound is John 11:35 – Jesus wept. God, robed in flesh was moved to tears for the loss of a friend. I’m glad I serve a God of compassion and mercy who allows me to cast ALL my care upon Him!

Preaching in a Frying Pan

Moreover take thou unto thee an iron pan, and set it for a wall of iron between thee and the city: and set thy face against it…Eze. 4:3 – God called Ezekiel to preach his message to Israel into a frying pan! I know the faces of the unsaved may be intimidating when sharing the Gospel, almost like an “iron skillet,” but tell them anyway. The postage was paid at Calvary folks…you just need to deliver the mail!

Put Postponed Promises in the Potter's Hands

The Psalmist declared, “I will praise you; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.” Only the God of the universe could form man from clay and breath the breathe of life into him. What lifeless lumps of clay you thought were dilapidated dreams and postponed promises, will you allow God to breath new life into? Leave them on the wheel and let the POTTER perform His artistry. He said, “I will work…who will let me work?
