The Rushing of Many Waters

And I heard a sound like the roar of a great multitude, like the rushing of many waters, and like a mighty rumbling of thunder, crying out: "Hallelujah! For our Lord God, the Almighty, reigns. (Revelation 19:6)
I love the sound of water flowing over rocks. To me it is a relaxing and peaceful sound. For many years, we had a fountain in our backyard and we enjoyed so much the sound of the flowing water. It would occasionally splash out and give off a refreshing spray. We no longer have the fountain, so I look forward to hearing the sound of the stream on our property after a hard rain or the sound of a river flowing over rock when we hike in the woods. Each time I hear the rushing sound of water, I think of the voice of God. It is a voice of power and might. Just as the water that rushes over rock can smooth jagged edges and cut new paths for the river to flow so can the voice of God smooth out the rough edges of my life and cut a path for me to follow. The sound of the mighty rushing waters is a reminder to me that God is in control. "Hallelujah! For our Lord God, the Almighty, reins."
