New Year's Eve
Sound Precedes a Move of God
Many times we are expecting a move of God, when in fact, God is waiting for the sound of His people. We are the sound that introduces His powerful move.
Psalm 22:3 But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel.
Judges 7:20-22 (Gideon and 300 soldiers) 20 Then the three companies blew the trumpets and broke the pitchers—they held the torches in their left hands and the trumpets in their right hands for blowing—and they cried, “The sword of the Lord and of Gideon!” 21 And every man stood in his place all around the camp; and the whole army ran and cried out and fled. 22 When the three hundred blew the trumpets, the Lord set every man’s sword against his companion throughout the whole camp; and the army fled…
Joshua 6:20 (walls at Jericho) So the people shouted when the priests blew the trumpets. And it happened when the people heard the sound of the trumpet, and the people shouted with a great shout, that the wall fell down flat. Then the people went up into the city, every man straight before him, and they took the city.
Acts 16:25-26 (Paul and Silas in prison) 25 But at midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the prisoners were listening to them. 26 Suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken; and immediately all the doors were opened and everyone’s chains were loosed.
There’s something powerful about God’s people making a sound. Psalms 8:2 Out of the mouth of babes and nursing infants You have ordained strength, because of Your enemies, that You may silence the enemy and the avenger. Our praise shuts up the enemy.
