A New Sound!

Isn't it just like the Lord to give us an opportunity to put into use the revelations recently revealed?! I mean - it seems like it would be nice to let it just soak in... but maybe then it would soak too far and be forgotten... He's pretty witty, knowing that if we are not called to use what we've been given - it will more than likely grow dormant!

The Lord, as I have shared, has been talking to me about Speaking OUT... not just reordering our thoughts... but the power of the Spoken Word... I have been talking a LOT more (in the car, and at home, and even {almost unaware} in the grocery store) ...of course - this often gets concerned or frightened glances from strangers. Oops - there is that Fear of man again!? Let's just deal with one issue at a time, shall we, Lord?!

So - these past couple of weeks, I have been battling health issues. First off, I must tell you that I have been blessed with health and I am not very 'good' at being sick. I grew up in a home where we planned for our sickness... being sick was how we got attention and rewards... skipping school, being pampered, the prime couch spot in front of the TV... etc.! So - when I was a young adult, I thought it was normal to preplan for sickness. The Lord graciously renewed my mind and helped me to decide to live in health, rather than in sickness. I know it is not always that easy - but overall - changing the way my MIND worked, helped my flesh to line up! So - we are a healthy house! We pray, we do what we know to do to stay healthy, and we stand on the Word. I know the healing scriptures... I quote them to others when I pray... I listen to them and quote them over myself and my family... so off and on for the past few weeks - I have dealt with this irritating illness. I would take some herbs and pray and rest, and it would go away... for a day or two or even a week, but then it would come back again. When it would come back, the enemy would attach all sorts of tauntings with it... causing me to struggle against the spirit of fear. At one point, I thought I felt the Lord speak to me saying that this 'illness' or infection was a physical sign of a spiritual problem... not just for me, but for the Body... since I felt that in my spirit, I have talked to many who have been dealing with the same issues... (ear related stuff) Therefore, last week during prayer when I heard the Lord give this Word - I knew that not only would I need to Speak out, cry louder, and stand on those healing scriptures that I know - but I also knew that my victory was around the corner...

When we entered in to worship, I immediately saw in my spirit Jesus, standing firm - feet planted on the ground - almost in a Warrior position, His arms outstretched, His head back, with fire in His eyes... and yet, those eyes were full of Love! As He opened His mouth, the Sword of the Spirit came out... then suddenly I saw myself (representing the Body) stepping up and INTO Christ. (Christ in me, the Hope of Glory!) This tied in with the Abiding in Him and He in me verses we had been talking about earlier in the prayer meeting! Anyway - I saw myself stand up and step INTO Jesus...my skin covering His, etc. I saw myself taking on His stance, opening my mouth to boldly speak and the Sword of the Spirit - which is the Word of God - coming forth and being released. (End of vision)

For me, this was just another confirmation that we truly do need to be taking up the Authority Christ has given us, and rise up in the victory for which He battled and won... He has paid the price and we are more than conquerors! We need to be speaking out and standing firm on the Word of God... allow it to be released when we speak. We must hear His Voice and speak whatever it is that He asks or tells us to!

As I was processing this and thinking these thoughts, I heard Him say, "I am releasing now, in this seasons, a New Sound to those who have ears to hear." I saw in the spirit musicians playing various instruments and as the notes or chords were being played, on the very sound waves, were Words of Life... Words of Prophecy, Words of Hope, Faith, & Love. "Even in the natural, for those who have ears to hear, they will hear a new dimension to the music I am now releasing! Many will speak out, some will sing out, and there will be depth and harmony within the sound. It will be like the Sound of Many Waters because I, Myself, am speaking WITH you and FOR you! I will join in with your proclamation and decrees!" says the Lord!

You see, the enemy had been attacking my ears for weeks... I do not have ear problems - even as a child - this was not a 'normal' occurrence. I believe the devil was trying to block my hearing... whether or not you are dealing with physical issues - I believe the enemy of your soul is trying to block your hearing as well - but the Lord is now releasing a New Sound - and His desire is that you would have ears to hear!!!

I don't know about you - but there are a few things that quickly came to my mind when He said He would join with us in our proclamations and decrees! I am decreeing a few things with renewed faith and boldness! I encourage you to pray and ask the Lord what it is that He would desire you to declare and decree over your own life and circumstances!!! Take action, write it out and read it boldly... decree some things of your own this week!

Lord, give us ears to hear, and a boldness to speak out and decree!
In Him,

    Karrilee - how deeply your blog has touched me. I have to tell you that I just got over an ear infection and I have had a problem with my voice since our last Encounter Meeting (where I spoke)in April. The doctors say that there is no medical explanation for the strained vocal chords. Someone is just trying to keep us quiet. Keep trying - it ain't gonna work!


Thanks so much for stopping by! I always love to hear your thoughts! Remember to: Speak Life - Be Love - Shine On!
