LIFT UP YOUR VOICE


by Tom Inglis 14 August, 2016

No two voices are the same. The spectrum of frequencies that make up the human voice or sounds we make when we speak or sing is unique in every individual. The voice can be described as the most distinguishing hallmark of the individual, and the most powerful. Your voice is the greatest communication tool you have, for with it you bless God with your words and invoke His presence and power through praise and prayer.

Give heed to the voice of my cry, My King and my God, For to You I will pray. My voice You shall hear in the morning, O LORD; In the morning I will direct it to You, And I will look up. Psalm 5:2-3.

For I Myself will give you a mouth and such utterance and wisdom that all of your foes combined will be unable to stand against or refute. Luke 21:15 (Amplified Bible).

VOICE IS A LETHAL WEAPON

Your voice is also your most lethal weapon to silence the enemy. The Bible repeatedly tells us to watch how we use words, because they are the carriers of life and death (Proverbs 18:21). The words you speak are never unheard or insignificant. They bring into manifestation the things they describe. Words eventually become ‘things’. That is their ultimate objective and the way God has purposed the use of them.

You will also declare a thing, And it will be established for you; So light will shine  on your ways. Job 22:28.

As a spirit being, you are ‘tuned in’ to hear the voice of God. It should be normal for a Christian to hear the voice of God, not necessarily in an audible way, but as a ‘still small voice’ in your spirit (1 Kings 19:12). The more you spend time with God in reading His word and praying, the clearer His voice becomes, because you have tuned into the same ‘spiritual’ frequency as God. This is a key to life because it is the way God leads us is to be tuned into His frequency (John 10:27, John 16:13).

It is also the only way to accomplish the impossible, for God has created all things to respond to words. In Genesis 1:3, “Then God said, “Let there be light” and there was light.” The atoms responded and arranged themselves accordingly to produce the thing that God had spoken, namely light. Every atom responds to God’s word and the creation of all things is based on this principle. When we speak or sing God’s word, things around us respond accordingly. Faith in what we speak or sing causes things to become ordered according to God’s word (Hebrews 11:1). Your voice, whether speaking or singing is your most powerful asset, for with it your world.

POWER OF SINGING

Singing praise has a particularly powerful affect. There is evidence that when you sing, the Holy Spirit releases His power against the enemy coming against you. There is a flow of His power that is synergistic with the flow of your praise.

So they rose early in the morning and went out into the Wilderness of Tekoa; and as they went out, Jehoshaphat stood and said, “Hear me, O Judah and you inhabitants of Jerusalem: Believe in the LORD your God and you shall be established; believe His prophets, and you shall prosper.” And when he had consulted with the people, he appointed those who should sing to the LORD, and who should praise the beauty of holiness, as they went out before the army and were saying:  “Praise the LORD, For His mercy endures forever.” Now when they began to sing and to praise, the LORD set ambushes against the people of Ammon, Moab, and Mount Seir, who had come against Judah; and they  were defeated. For the people of Ammon and Moab stood up against the inhabitants of Mount Seir to utterly kill and destroy them. And when they had made an end of the inhabitants of Seir, they helped to destroy one another. 2 Chronicles 20:20 -23.

Notice how they only began to sing when the power of God was released on the enemy. It was not the music that released the power of God, but the content of what they were singing, “Praise the Lord, for His mercy endures forever” (2 Chronicles 20:21). God always responds to His word, whether spoken or sung. However there is a manifestation of God’s power that seems to be released quickly when we sing. While in jail, the instance Paul and Silas started to sing there was a dramatic deliverance. When you start to sing, the Holy Spirit starts to flow with His power against the enemy and your adverse circumstances.

But at midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the prisoners were listening to them. Suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken; and immediately all the doors were opened and everyone’s chains were loosed. Acts 16:25-26.
