Sound of Heaven

sounds from heaven

“The Spirit of God has made me, and the breath of the Almighty gives me life.”Job 33:4

There’s a story about a violinist who come on stage one evening and after he drew the bow across his violin, produced the most glorious sound the audience had ever heard. The crowd gave him ovation after ovation but then violinist broke the violin into pieces. He calmly looked at the shocked audience and said: “Ladies and gentlemen, don’t be dismayed. This was only a three and a half dollar violin. It is not so much the violin that makes the music as it is the man who draws the bow.”
From the scriptures we know that musical instruments have a special place in God’s design of the world, both visible and invisible.  Since the first line of musicians in Genesis 4:21, God ordained the playing of instruments as one of the main forms of worship expressions for his chosen people. The triumphal return of Jesus Christ will be preceded by the sound of trumpets (1 Corinthians 15:52; 1 Thessalonians 4:16;).

A new year means pressing the reset button, recommitting ourselves to a fresh walk with God, and presenting our bodies as a “living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God” (Romans 12:1). Through the willful act of submission and yielding of ourselves to God, we become powerful instruments in the hands of the Master. Often times we want to write our own melodies and dictate our own tune, but the sound of God is only released through those who align themselves to the frequency of heaven. The sound of God is the heart of God and His will being released into a person’s life or situation. Just as different instruments differ in size, shape and sound, there’s a sound that is unique to you because the melodies were written by God as He fashioned you in the womb (Psalm 139:13).

It’s not about our abilities, gifts and talents; in the hands of the Master, a $3.50 violin can turn into a masterpiece. Every so often, instruments need to be tuned to improve the quality of the sound; this year,  let God release through you the Sound of heaven as you submit yourself to Him.

In His authority

In His authorityMoses stands as one of the greatest leaders in Bible times. Being raised among the elite class of the house of Pharaoh, Moses was accustomed to operating in man’s system of power and authority. It’s not surprising therefore, to see Moses taking justice in his own hands and killing an Egyptian. As long as Moses saw himself as “ruler and judge” (Exodus 2:14), he wasn’t ready to be a part of God’s plan to deliver Israel; he needed to go through God’s process of submission.

40 years exile in the wilderness of Midian, transformed Moses self-will into surrender; No longer is he going out on the mission on his own, but he’s being sent in the authority of God: “This is what you are to say to the Israelites: ‘I am has sent me to you.’”(Exodus 3:14).  No longer is Moses operating in his own abilities, but henceforth, the very words and works of God will be made manifest through Him. No longer is Moses the administrator of punishment, but rather an intercessor pleading, and willing to risk his own salvation on behalf of the guilty (Exodus 32:32). In Numbers 12:3, we read of the testimony God gave of Moses; that he was more humble than any other man on the face of the earth.

When we find ourselves defeated, disillusioned and discouraged, it’s because we have substituted our call as servants for a position of savior. The vision may have been revealed, but the worker is not ready, until he or she submits to the process of God’s discipline, and emptying of the self. As the song goes, “we have nothing to bring but empty hands.”
