What SOUND are you listening to?
“And it shall be, when you hear the SOUND of MARCHING in the tops of the mulberry trees, then you shall advance quickly. For then the LORD will go out before you to strike the camp of the Philistines.” 2 Samuel 5;24.
We all have many voices speaking around us and attempting to speak into us. Some of what we hear is sound wisdom, solid prophetic counsel, and some is simply chatter while others even attempt to speak curses and witchcraft against us and over us.
King David while facing the large Philistine army in 2 Samuel 5, FIRST INQUIRED of the Lord asking the Lord, will you give the Philistines into my hand?
While it would have seemed easier to go straight for the enemy or to LISTEN to the band of men that surrounded him, David CHOSE to LISTEN to the voice of the Lord. In SEEKING the Lord David found a HEAVENLY STRATEGY from the Lord in order to see his enemies fully defeated.
The Lord gave David a BLUEPRINT, a HEAVENLY STRATEGY instructing David to go around to the mulberry trees, and when He HEARD THE SOUND of MARCHING in the tops of the trees, the LORD would then GO BEFORE David and DELIVER the enemy into his hands.
Many times it is easier for us to implement a strategy that makes sense to our natural minds and reasoning. We can have a tendency to look only with our natural eyes and senses instead of SEEING with the EYES of the SPIRIT.
What if God wanted to see the manifestation of the vision in a way that seems absurd or goes against our natural minds?
That SOUND is a PROPHETIC PICTURE of the SOUND of HEAVEN, and the HEAVENLY STRATEGIES, DOWNLOADS, and BLUEPRINTS the Lord is releasing to those in this season who have an EAR to HEAR what the Lord is saying to His sons and daughters.
I declare and decree NEW MARCHING ORDERS are coming forth in this hour. It is imperative that we choose carefully what SOUND we are going to LISTEN to.
Wrong VOICES can lead to wrong CHOICES. It’s not only the VISION God wants you to CARRY, but the STRATEGY of how to implement that same vision.
David LISTENED CAREFULLY for the SOUND as God instructed him. Are we LISTENING for the SOUND of HEAVEN?
Or are we in a place of confusion because of the many voices continually speaking into us.
It’s TIME to GRAB HOLD of the SOUND, STRATEGY, and BLUEPRINT of HEAVEN. As we do, VICTORY is assured!
To GOD be all the GLORY!
