Acts 18:9 (TLB) One night the Lord spoke to Paul in a vision and told him, “Don’t be afraid! Speak out! Don’t quit!
Beloved, refuse to shrink back. Refuse to be cowed. No ploy of the enemy or criticism of man is worth bowing to fear. I AM with you. My grace sustains you. You are worthy and beloved by Me – not for what you do, but for who you are. And yet stand fast, refuse to be moved. Refuse to allow your testimony to be tarnished or stolen. You are able to withstand. My grace is sufficient.
For I, even I, have put the words in your mouth. So let them flow forth – allowing them to flow unhindered – planting seeds and watering each in their season. And watch beloved, for I will surely plant them in fertile ground and that will yield beautiful fruit. Rich is the reward.
Psalm 104:33 (TLB) I will sing to the Lord as long as I live. I will praise God to my last breath!
Beloved, break forth in song – refuse to be made silent. For your delight is a blessing to Me and brings glory to My name. It shifts the atmosphere and declares My goodness. It magnifies Me and brings honor to My name. So sing, precious songbird, sing!
Never discount the power of your song. The sound coming forth breaks chains and sets the captives free. The angels respond to your voice – even the armies of heaven move out on the notes carried by your breath. Your voice changes things. It shifts things in the unseen realm as well as the seen. Refuse to be silent anointed songbird, release what I have placed within you for it is lovely and more powerful than you know.
Psalm 33:2 (VOICE) Worship the Eternal with your instruments, strings offering their praise; write awe-filled songs to Him on the 10-stringed harp.
Beloved, use whatever is at your disposal to make a joyful noise. I AM less concerned with proficiency than heart, so simply pour out from your overflow the joy and worship you have for Me, may your love shine forth on words and notes so sweet unto My ear. May your praise be a fragrant offering and your worship as incense before My throne.
Make your praise glorious, worthy of the King of Kings. Like the widow’s mite, your all will be enough – you and your praise will be accepted when offered with clean hands and a pure heart. Ascend the heights with Me, beloved, lost in the glory of My praise. Watch life and joy pour forth as the flame on the altar burns brightly.
Psalm 66:1-2 (ASV) Make a joyful noise unto God, all the earth: Sing forth the glory of his name: Make his praise glorious.
Colossians 3:16 (VOICE) Let the word of the Anointed One richly inhabit your lives. With all wisdom teach, counsel, and instruct one another. Sing the psalms, compose hymns and songs inspired by the Spirit, and keep on singing—sing to God from hearts full and spilling over with thankfulness.
Beloved, lift your voice in song. I AM worthy of your praise, worthy of your affection. Release a sound. Give voice to the overflow of your heart. Let My word pour forth from your lips. Make My heart known. Release it into the atmosphere on the wings of joy. Breath life. Prophesy.
You are created in My image and I AM the Creator, I spoke life into existence – the sound of My voice reverberating through heaven and earth. Do likewise. Lift your voice. Don’t hesitate. Refuse to allow timidity, lack of perfection, or performance anxiety to hinder you from breaking forth. I have put song in your heart, release it, beloved.
Isaiah 62:6 (AMP) On your walls, O Jerusalem, I have appointed and stationed watchmen (prophets), Who will never keep silent day or night; You who profess the Lord, take no rest for yourselves,
Beloved, be relentless in your prayers. The enemy will always be persistent and tactical in his attacks, so be persistent and tactical in yours by staying focused and intentional in prayer. Allow My Holy Spirit to lead and guide you. Refuse to be silenced. Cry out. Declare truth and life.
I AM the way. I AM the truth. I AM the life. Declare the truth of Who I AM and the authority I hold into every situation and circumstance. Nothing is too hard for Me. I AM mighty. I AM strong. I AM the Lord of Heavenly Armies and I will not be defeated.
Psalm 139:23 (VOICE) Explore me, O God, and know the real me. Dig deeply and discover who I am…
Beloved, I see who you truly are for I know who you’ve been created to be because I AM Creator. I know you. I AM calling forth your true self. Just as death couldn’t hold Lazarus back when he was called forth, nothing will keep you from walking in all I have called you to for I have spoken your name.
So walk boldly, beloved. Let nothing hinder or hold you back. My voice is the voice of many waters and it breaks even the mighty cedars, surely you know that when I speak chains are broken and no restraint can stand. Be free, beloved! Be free! Continue reading “I Have Spoken Your Name”
Ecclesiastes 3:1 For everything that happens in life—there is a season, a right time for everything under heaven
Beloved, everything I do has a rhythm and a flow. Each thing in its perfect timing. Like an orchestra playing a powerful piece of music and each instrument, each melody, each beat needs to be in perfect timing – flawlessly synchronized – to create the desired harmony. Creation is orchestrated for My glory. All are blessed and moved by the way things align, like shivers from a sweeping arpeggio or a grand crescendo.
Each season, each moment perfectly timed. Yield to My flow. Trust My rhythm. I AM always on time: never early, never late. Move with Me – not trying to rush ahead, nor trying to drag your feet. Experience the exquisiteness of My harmony.
2 Samuel 5:24 (VOICE) When you hear the sound of a mighty army marching, reverberating in the tops of the balsam trees, come quickly and fight, for the Eternal has gone ahead of you into battle to destroy the army of the Philistines.
Beloved, listen for My sound. Listen for My heartbeat. Listen for the sound of Me moving – taking action. Tune in your spiritual senses to My frequency so you may be alert to how I AM moving. I want you to know. I do not want you to be surprised. I want you aligned with Me – in step with My cadence – so catch My rhythm and move with Me.
When we align, the results that come forth have supernatural impact. Like when the walls of Jericho fell at the sound of the blasts and the shouts of Israel, when My people align with Me – My heartbeat, My rhythm, My sound – and move with Me, I move in power and darkness trembles. Hear Me, beloved, and move with My sound!
Amos 3:7 (TLV) For the Lord Adonai, will do nothing, unless He has revealed His counsel to His servants the prophets.
Joshua 6:20 (ESV) …As soon as the people heard the sound of the trumpet, the people shouted a great shout, and the wall fell down flat…
Romans 8:26 (AMPC) So too the [Holy] Spirit comes to our aid and bears us up in our weakness; for we do not know what prayer to offer nor how to offer it worthily as we ought, but the Spirit Himself goes to meet our supplication and pleads in our behalf with unspeakable yearnings and groanings too deep for utterance.
Make a sound, beloved. Let it come forth from inside you – whether it be a bursting shout, a mighty roar, or a groan too deep for words. Pour it forth – whether an offering of praise or a tool of intercession – release what is stirring in your belly, for I have placed it there. Let your sound echo through the heavenlies – breaking strongholds, declaring victory, and ascribing praise.
Do not hold back. Do not let the enemy steal your voice. Do not let concerns of what man may think hinder you from doing, being, and birthing that which you are called to. Break forth! Shout in victory! Let your sound declare it to be so! And so the thing shall be established. Release it! Mighty is your sound.
