The Lord spoke to me and said, “I am not listening for a song from my people, I am listening for a sound from my people.”
Honestly, I did not realize there was a difference, until I looked up the definition of the two words song and sound.
Song = a short poem or other set of words set to music or meant to be sung
Sound = vibrations that travel through the air or another medium and can be heard when they reach a persons or animals ear.
The Lord wants to hear a sound, a vibration coming from His people that affects the atmosphere. The prophet Joel said, “SOUND the alarm” (Joel 2). Adam and Eve heard “the SOUND of the Lord God in the garden” (Genesis 3). The Lord told David “when you hear the sound of marching in the tops of the balsam trees” (2 Samuel 5).
Church it’s time to release the sounds that pierce the atmosphere. Blow your shofar, bang the drums, lift your voice for the Lord is listening for our sound!!!
