Tune In

We have a million voices that swirl around us every day. We are bombarded with the temptation to believe the “NO’s” that the world pushes in our face.

No, to you becoming all that God has purposed in His heart for you. No, to you living a life of victory. No, to you living in God’s peace.

Or enticed to stand in agreement with the lie that God is not for us that He has forsaken us, and has stopped speaking promises over us.

There are too many voices. Turn down the volume on the noise.

Now, press in to what might seem like a small whisper at first…..but once you’re in heart shot to receive the ONE voice that’s worth anything it will echo as thunderous praise over you and anoint your head with fresh oil……..HIS voice will pour over you with a fresh covering…..HIS voice will run over your heart as a fresh word of HOPE…..

Let’s lean in close……..I’m starting to hear what HE says…..

“For I KNOW the plans that I have for you, DECLARES THE LORD, plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope.” Jeremiah 29:11 NAS

“The Lord your God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save; he will rejoice over you with gladness; he will quiet you by his love; he will exult over you with loud singing.” Zephaniah 3:17 ESV

“For Zion’s sake I will not keep silent, and for Jerusalem’s sake I will not be quiet, until her righteousness goes forth as brightness, and her salvation as a burning torch. The nations shall see your righteousness, and all the kings your glory, and you shall be called by a new name that THE MOUTH OF THE LORD will give. You shall be a crown of beauty in the hand of the Lord, and a royal diadem in the hand of your God. You shall no longer be termed Forsaken, and your land shall no more be termed Desolate, but you shall be called My Delight Is In Her, and your land Married, for the Lord delights in you, and your land shall be married. For as a young man marries a young woman, so shall your sons marry you, and as the bride groom rejoices over the bride, so shall your God rejoice over you.” Isaiah 62:1-5 ESV

“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth should change, and though the mountains slip into the heart of the sea; though its waters roar and foam, though the mountains quake at its swelling pride. There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy dwelling places of the Most High. God is in the midst of her, she will not be moved; God will help her when morning dawns. The nations make an uproar, the kingdoms tottered; HE RAISED HIS VOICE, the earth melted. The Lord of hosts is with us; The God of Jacob is our stronghold.” Psalm 46:1-7 NAS

Are you starting to hear the ONE VOICE we should be tuning in to?? I’m becoming convinced that the God of Psalm 103 is who is speaking over me…..are you?

“Bless the Lord, O my soul; and all that is within me, bless His holy name. Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget none of His benefits; who pardons all your iniquities; who heals all your diseases; who redeems your life from the pit; who crowns you with lovingkindness and compassion; who satisfies your years with good things, so that your youth is renewed like the eagle.” Psalm 103:1-5

If you still need convincing cling to the words penned in Romans 8….

“If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare His own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things? Who shall bring any charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies. Who is to condemn? Christ Jesus is the one who died – more than that, who was raised – who is at the right hand of God, who indeed is INTERCEEDING FOR US!” Romans 8:31-34

“For I AM CONVINCED that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:38-39

Tune in to HIS VOICE and turn down the volume on the noise of the world…..let HIM speak a fresh word, a fresh covering and a fresh anointing over your life.

“I have been anointed with fresh oil.” Psalm 92:10
