The New Sound

by Feb 10, 2022Devotional0 comments

Proverbs 8:4 I call to you, to all of you! I raise my voice to all people.

      
      Are you tired of the same old sound of “Oh hum?” Have you become a mouthpiece for all the troubles we are going through and reinforcing the magnitude of the problem by talking about it all day long? Our Heavenly Father says it is time for a new thing to be done, and a new sound to be heard. Isa. 43:19 See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland. The wilderness experience that many are going through can be changed by obeying the direction of the Lord. If you have found yourself languishing in a desert and existing with a dry arid soul that no longer satisfies your life, then it is time for a new song to come forth from your inner man. Psalm 96:1 Sing a new song to the LORD; let the whole earth sing to the LORD.      
      What does a new sound of God sound like or even look like? Where is the mighty wind of God that will change the negative narrative that is stagnating numerous people in the church? Acts 2:2 And suddenly there came from heaven a sound like a mighty rushing wind, and it filled the entire house where they were sitting. And divided tongues as of fire appeared to them and rested on each one of them. The Holy Spirit is available to us, however, we have to ask for His indwelling and leading to bring about the move that God has planned for us. We have to want the sound of the Holy Spirit’s visitation and revival upon our lives.
      Like all revivals in the past, they have all come about because of the hunger within people’s hearts for the will of God to manifest. Plus, the desire to see God moving in the earth, freeing countless souls from a Christless eternity. We all want God to move and bring about the biggest revival ever, but we have to get out of God’s way so He can fulfill His will and our destiny. To simply put out an old dusty sign in front of the church saying Revival This Week, Between the Hours of 7:00 pm. to 8:30 pm. is not going to cut it. It is going to take a submissive heart toward the Holy Spirit and let Him do the eternal work within us that needs to be done to sanctify us for the Lord’s use.
      The new sound of the Lord is an anointed birthing of holiness that is God-inspired. God is the one who leads His people into a revival of the heart and does it in a way that all the people of the earth may take part in the outpouring of His grace. Hab. 2:14 For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD as the waters cover the sea. If the Lord is asking you to pray for the coming new sound of the Holy Spirit, then do not put this calling off. Prov. 8:4 I call to you, to all of you! I raise my voice to all people. Don’t say, “God would not use me to bring about a worldwide revival because I am not that spiritually connected to Him.” So many people say the same thing and this is why we need a new move of the Lord and revival in our hearts. God can and does use who He wants.                   
      Revival is God’s idea and our necessity. God does not need to be revived, we do. We want to have a sharp focus on what God is doing so that we stop approaching Sunday after Sunday with a drone-like attitude. We will die a slow death within our souls if we do not come alive to what God is up to. We were created to live and be alive in the spirit of God. To have the Lord of the universe dwelling within our hearts is not a small thing. It is beyond that which we can even imagine. The only thing stopping a renewal of the Holy Spirit’s power within us is the limitations we put on God. 
      The new sound that will come from our hearts is a renewal of resurrection power and love for the Lord. Let us ask God what He wants to do with His church, and ask what the answer is for our lives to come into agreement with what the Lord is doing. God invites us to call upon Him for the answers we need. Jer. 33:3 Call to me and I will answer you, and will tell you great and hidden things that you have not known. Yes, Lord, we ask You to help us do what has to be done in our hearts, to bring about the revival that the whole world needs at this time. Father, Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us an outpouring of the Holy Spirit that we have never known or seen to this day. Let it be done. Amen!
