VOICES!

08 Dec

“He who guards his lips guards his soul.”   Proverbs 13:3

The voice is the sound made by the vibrations from the vocal cords.  For the most part, it has a distinctive sound to its own.  Some voices are sweet, like that of a tenor voice.  Our voices are used for communication; to give voice to a mute or cartoon character.  Our voices can be active, passive, loud or soft.

There is one thing we all have in common when it come to our voices and Christ, and that is; He created us to hear His Voice.  So we need to understand the fact that if the voices we are hearing contradicts The Scriptures-God didn’t say it; and I don’t know who you heard.  Want me to guess?

When our voice’s come together in harmony, a choir can be formed, but if we are all talking at the same time it creates babble, and that is not music to our ears.  The voice cannot work alone, it needs four organs to function properly in my opinion.  The tongue, the mouth and the vocal cords.  The fourth is the spit that holds them all together, and the one that falters the most; Our Mind. A healthy brain is needed to be an asset, in all aspects of everything.

The voice is not only audible, it also has a special sound only we can hear in our heads.  There are some who hear with their eyes; such as when using sign language, body posture, etc.  Our voices are one of the most widely used, and one of the most powerful tools we possess as humans; with or without sound.

The Holy Spirit tops the list for me.

Oftentimes, we talk so much it has become commonplace to not think before we speak.  How we use our voice and what we use it for is what’s important.  Understand if you are silent about your pain or not voice your opinions, just life in general and it kills you, others may say you brought it on yourself.  As if we enjoy suffering.

Our problems need to be addressed, and we need to find the courage to speak boldly about them; if we intend to be heard.  In order to find a solution, “Go to God in Prayer!”  The God I serve Jesus Christ will guide us to the correct solution for our unique and personal situations.

If we concentrate, stay still and study the Word, we will learn to listen to the Holy Spirit.  This way we will be able to hear the Voice of Christ in our hearts. With this knowledge in tack, we can travel down the right path and properly form the words in our mouths that “Glorify and Praise the Lord.”

“Your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, “This is the way, walk in it, “Whenever you turn to the right hand or whenever you turn to the left.”   Isaiah 30:21

Our voices are often used as a defense tactic and an excuse.  If we are guilty of some infraction, for some reason we cannot keep our big mouths shut.  A dead giveaway when we are wrong or have wronged someone.  Talking about “speaking in tongues,” but not in a wise way, if you get my drift.

A conscience is what I use to call the Holy Spirit.  Now some may choose to disagree, claiming not to have either one; that’s alright with me.  But things change when we can discern the Words of Christ, our conscience will become known as The Holy Spirit, the more we learn about ourselves thru Christ.  That’s the voice we all should be striving to hear.

Some hear strange voices; for instance the one’s where a “little birdie” or our “first mind”  is telling us something.  “Don’t go there,” could be what one of those voices is saying.  O.K. But when we practice the Words of Christ and use them with common sense, we may recognize Jesus as the real author and not some bird; this time.  “Stay with it until you get it.”  Pray for clarity.  Then and only then can we discern (understand) both good and evil.

We choose our paths, including what we believe and to whom we listen.  So I have taken to the notion that we can hear three different voices.  The 1st is the one we all know, all too well, the Devil.  The 2nd is the greedy voice of our bodies, willing to go and do whatever it pleases without reservations.  Last but not lease, heard but often dismissed, and the most important and sweetest sound of them all; The Voice of Jesus Christ. 

Our voices have different ranges; even the smooth tones of a tenor can fuel a fire, just as easily as it can calm the worst of nerves.  Powerful in all aspects… Even the bible tells us “life or death lies in the power of the tongue.”  Our physical voice can create a problem, if it is not contained.

At some of the most inopportune times, the tongue and mouth can become dangerously out of control, and they can be the “masters of disguise.”  When those two are working together in an unchristian-like fashion; our voices can get loud, causing us to “say one thing and mean another.”  Some of us need to get a grip on that sometimes nasty mouth, even if we have to “bite our tongues.”

For safety reasons our voice is best used when the brain is working properly, causing most of us, I hope,  to use common sense and knowledge.  Some conversations are not worth it.  So keep in mind if you are hated for trying to reason with others, walk away before anger get the best of you.

The old folks say; “Loose lips sink ships.”   The bible says “A fool will only resent you more.”

Some may not want to admit to voices only heard in their head.  Some voices are whispering in our ears, and some from our peers, etc...  (Demons.)  Each voice has a personality of its own.  The voice I am seeking is the one that’s in one accord with Christ Jesus.

So I am proclaiming with my voice, Jesus is Lord.

As strange as it may seem we sometimes miss what is being said, not only because we weren’t listening, we were not watching the body language.  And most of us have issues because we can only hear our own voice, although someone else was speaking.

In some countries the tongue is cut out for lying, the hand cut off for stealing and lives lost from the voices of deceit and misdirection.  Our voice, when speaking in truth is one of the most useful tools we process to fight against the Devil, in the physical world.

Talk about Christ to the Devil, in any world, and he will flee.   “Get thee behind me, Satan.” 

Since we are a race of “I know-it-all,”  be careful not pushy when speaking the truth.  Sometimes we try to drown out the voices of others while trying to be heard, causing us to have miscues in patience.  I resolved this issue by putting pen to paper.  It’s best for you to do you, I now let my words out with a new-found calmness; I have been known on occasions to get loud.  Sometimes at a cost.

When we receive the Holy Spirit, “The Lord will put his rules in our minds, and write them down on our hearts.”   Hebrews 8:10                                                                                                                                                                            Jesus Christ speaks to our heart, in the Spirit, we must learn to listen in spirit, to obtain a Christ-like voice and Everlasting Life.

Jesus wants to hear our voices, especially in praise, so “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.”   Colossians 3:16    Amen!

We have been told, it’s simple enough; If we want to be heard by Christ, lift up your VOICE, SING and PRAISE HIS HOLY NAME.
