The voice of the Lord is thundering from heaven!
As my friends and readers know, the hand of the Lord has been heavy on me since January 20th of this year, when the Spirit of God released a weighty, tangible glory in my home. (Read the story here). This glory has remained and steadily increased as I have pressed in to hear His voice day and night. One of the most interesting things I have heard the Lord say again and again is: “Come inside the sound of my voice.”
What does this mean? The voice of the Lord is a container for His power. Hearing and obeying God's voice empowers us on the earth. From the day of salvation, believers are invited into an intimate, personal relationship with a God who speaks - and speaks often!
When I take time to enter into places of stillness and rest in God, I hear His voice better. It is as if Holy Spirit amplifies the thoughts of God's heart to me in spiritual “surround sound!" With the voice of the Lord leading me and surrounding me, I no longer follow the multitude of other voices that would lead me astray.
I hear the Lord saying today to come apart, to set things back into divine order. Put His Kingdom first. Do this for yourself, for your family, your communities, and your nation. Doing this will activate a Divine “reset” that will sync us again with His overarching plan to reveal the mystery of Christ worldwide.
Here are the words He spoke to me:
Come inside the sound of My voice; come INSIDE the sound. As you enter into the sound of heaven’s reverberations you will experience more and more of My wisdom. Place yourself inside the “waves” of sound, riding them in the Spirit. There is strength, energy, and “dunamis” power released in the sound of My voice; the sound of many waters. Let the roar of My voice so “deafen” you to the roar of the enemy that ONLY freedom is possible. COME INSIDE THE SOUND!
You will hear the sound of liberty ringing: not that of a Liberty Bell or a distant summons to freedom, but something internal and powerful, originating from within you so that its purpose is unmistakable.
The sound of My voice will “ring” and resonate at maximum volume, enlightening you and deafening, even darkening the enemy. It is the sound of war, a war cry over My people, whose hearts have been too dull to hear it. The enemy’s taunts will mean nothing to the ones who are totally surrendered; his voice will simply NOT BE HEARD.
In other words, returning to worship, prayer, meditating on the word, and warring with our prophecies will activate a powerful “shift” in us that releases greater freedom. Cultivating places of brokenness and humility before the Lord right now will result in tremendous advancement for the Kingdom of God later, both personally and corporately.
I wish I could convey to you the hope and excitement I feel in the Spirit as I spend time with the Lord during these quiet days at home!
I know that many of you are impacted negatively by the COVID-19 virus and the fear taking hold around you, but I encourage you to put your trust in the Lord! Everything you need is in Him and inside the sound of His voice: provision, comfort, peace, healing, and purpose!
LIMITATIONS BREED CREATIVITY
Those of you who are creative or innovative know that limitations often breed a magnificent creation! The limitations imposed by national governments to contain sickness and bring personal and economic shutdown are actually tools in the hand of God, instruments by which He is “reading” the condition of our hearts and adjusting our pace so that we do not go beyond the very limits He has established from the beginning.
What seems to be death is actually life. What looks like a limit is a critical opportunity for us to repent, get right, and be restored and ready for the next move of God!
King David wrote that God “set a table before him in the presence of his enemies.” (Psalm 23:5) All of God's watercourses overflow and refresh us, even in difficult times like these. Because of God’s holy Presence abiding in us, believers can pass through the valley of weeping and emerge on sunny hillsides of Grace and Truth.
We need only to come inside the sound of His voice, to draw near enough to Him that even the sound of His whispers rush over and through us. These whispers will become a roar; a flood that cannot be contained!
Dear friends, there is no instability around the throne of God. His rock-solid Kingdom government is founded on righteousness and peace. The sound of His voice is upholding all things. There is no trial or famine He has not already foreseen, and He has prepared us for the time in which we live.
The world is simply mirroring a greater heavenly principle in this hour. A deep sabbath-rest IN HIM is required before we can begin to move in the empowering revival that is coming next. Allow Holy Spirit to hover and brood over you as you remain still, preparing you for the radical and explosive shift that is about to manifest around the globe!
Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Move close enough to hear the sound of His whispers comforting and empowering you. Then you'll release that sound yourself, saying to a weary world: “Come, follow me!”
