Just recently, several ladies gathered on the Tuesday Morning prayer line and a very strong word from the Lord came forth concerning the sound that is now being released from heaven. It is a clear sound. It is the voice of the Father calling us to be discerning and to walk in wisdom and obedience to His voice. There are so many voices speaking and yet God says that His sheep know His voice and a strange voice they will not follow.

I must wonder if we are really hearing the voice of the Lord or do, we pay attention to and give more attention to the voice of the enemy or that of our own fleshly desires. And yes, the flesh does have a voice! The voice of our flesh speaks loudly with intense cravings that go against the voice of the Father and creates conflict and chaos within and without.  The voice of the enemy likewise speaks cunningly and boldly enticing us to do that which opposes the work of the Father.

My husband has Bose noise canceling headphones. They are headphones that reduce unwanted ambient sounds by using active noise control.  I tried them while we were on a flight and they worked. I could only hear the music and all the other sounds in the aircraft I could not hear. Oh, wouldn’t it be great if we were so in tuned with the sound that God is releasing from heaven; that all other voices would be cancelled? Have we become so familiar with the voices speaking in the earth that we have even forgotten to be intentional when listening for the Father’s voice? Have we become so cavalier concerning what the Father has to say that we have ceased to sit before Him and wait until He speaks? Hmmm, something to think about!
