The enemy is stealthy in his strategy against us individually; against us corporately; and against us nationally. One of his stealthy strategies is that of silencing us. Most people do not see silence as a strategy of the enemy, but if he can steal your voice and get you to be silent he can work his plan in your life, in a corporate bodies life or in a nations life. Yahweh does not shut you up, He encourages you to speak up, speak out, sing, shout, praise, decree, pray, prophesy, all words the Lord uses to say, speak my child, speak.
Psalm 94:16-17 says, “Who will stand up for me against evildoers? Who will take his stand for me against those who do wickedness? If the LORD had not been my help, My soul would soon have dwelt in the abode of silence.”
One of the evidences of God moving in your life, in your corporate setting, in your nation is the breaking of the silence. The sounds that come out of nations reveals the Lord working in that nation. In Canada we hear the sound of trucks and truckers; in Australia we see the signs people are carrying; wherever you hear a sound, you are seeing God helping that nation. While the enemy will use silence to control, the Lord will use sound to liberate. Listen for the sound coming out of your life, out of your corporate setting, out of your nation. The sound is evidence of the Lord’s help.
