Have you ever wondered how the Lord speaks? I do. The Lord speaks through different avenues to get my attention. He will speak through His Word or even anointed music. He speaks through others to confirm what He has told me. Sometimes, He speaks in a still small voice. Listening to His voice is an opportunity to be His voice to someone else.
This past week I spent 3 days at a conference. Preparing for the conference in prayer and fasting, I was asking the Lord to speak. The conference was amazing, anointed and timely for my life. But something happened that shook me to the core.
During the worship, Annie Edwards, spoke about a man who hadn’t picked up the guitar in a few years and God was calling him back. I heard the name “Josh”. Apostle Ryan Lestrange standing by me looked at me said you know who, and I said yes. He said say it and handed me the microphone. I said Josh. It’s Josh. God spoke in a small voice. Suddenly, Josh came forward and received an impartation of music and I cried! Why? Because I had no idea this man even played an instrument. I was just being obedient to what I heard.
For me, it was listening to His voice and sharing what God spoke to me. What happened inside of me was a stirring through an act of obedience and confirmation from the Lord. Do not be afraid to speak as God speaks.
In this coming year, I hear the word Boldness. We have to step out of our comfort zone to step into all God wants us to do. He is calling a remnant who will be His vessels to a lost and dying world. He wants to take the church to a whole new level. He wants us as the church to call forth what He has told us to do. How do we do that? By listening to His voice. He has a sound that will resonate and rock us to a dimension higher than where we are right now. Isaiah 6:8 says Then I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, "Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?" Then I said, "Here am I. Send me!" be the one God sends to bring encouragement. People need to know they are loved by God. God is calling us to be the voice to share His love with them. I love the scripture that says Call to me and I will answer you, and will tell you great and hidden things that you have not known. Jeremiah 33:3. Listen to His voice and be His mouthpiece.
God is calling His people to a new level of listening, hearing and obeying Him. I want to hear His voice. Don’t you? I pray you do.
