The Voice Of Many Waters

One day as my husband and I were praying and asking the Lord to meet a specific need, I heard in my spirit, 'Speak the Word only'.  Then the Holy Spirit reminded me of Matt 8:8, when the Roman centurion told Jesus to 'speak the word only, and my servant will be healed.' He recognized Jesus' authority over time, distance and circumstances.  The Lord reminded me of the scriptures, Ezekiel 43:2b and Revelation 1:15b which tell us that the voice of God is as the sound of many waters, 

I had just recently viewed a video clip that described how water from the Great Lakes feeding into Niagara  created the Niagara Falls. The falls were formed when melting glaciers began to form the large freshwater lakes now known as the Great Lakes. The water in Lake Erie ran downhill toward Lake Ontario, forming a river. This river crosses a ridge known as the Niagara Escarpment. The area where this river falls over the cliffs of the Niagara Escarpment is known as Niagara Falls.

Next the Lord showed me Matt 8:23-27, the day Jesus with His disciples took to the boat and Jesus said,"'let's go to the other side.' The scripture says that Jesus was asleep in the bow of the boat when a tempest or hurricane arose on the sea so that the boat was covered with the waves.  The men were in disparate fear for their lives because of the violence of the storm.  They cried out to the Lord and shook Him awake.

He said, 'Why are you fearful, O ye of little faith?' He arose, rebuked the winds and the sea and there was a great calm .  The Holy Spirit said to me it was the Voice of many waters that caused the winds and sea to drop in reverence before Him and bow down.  The elements heard and recognized the Voice of many waters, the voice of the Holy Spirit speaking through Jesus. This is what made the men say, 'Who is this that even the winds and waves obey Him?

The essence of what the Lord was telling me is He has given us authority in His name. Luke 10:19.  He has given us instructions; He wants us to use what He has given us to subdue and take our enemies captive.  When we speak the Word of God, directed by the Holy Spirit, that same Voice will be heard by the enemy.  Every time you allow the Voice of many waters to speak through you amazing things will happen!  He is seated at the right hand of the Father, expecting until His enemies be made a foot stool.

What then shall we say to these things?  If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things? Rom 8:31-32
