Did You Hear That?

Did You Hear That?

“And when you shall HEAR the sound of marching in the top of the mulberry trees, then you shall advance quickly.”  I Chronicles 14:15


Today the Lord, our Jehovah Perazim (the God of Breakthrough) is confirming His position in our current battle.  Just as He was with David, He is reminding us that His wisdom still supersedes that of the adversary. 

When reading this story in I Chronicles (or II Samuel) we discovered that Jehovah Perazim required  David’s response  to be quick and at precisely the right time.  Let’s consider David’s responsibility.

  1. David had to know the voice of the Lord.
  2. David had to remain alert and attentive in the realm of the spirit.
  3. David had to already have his weapons and be positioned offensively.

When we attempt to correlate this story to our daily lives, we must remember that:

  1. David sought the Lord for direction prior to the onset of the battle.
  2. The Lord went before David and “Broke Through” the front line of the enemy’s defense.
  3. Whatever the Lord has done before, He still has the power to do again.

I found it interesting that David was told to LISTEN for a certain sound. If we are going to know exactly when to advance, conquer and reclaim our territory; then we must critique or fine tune our ability to recognize a specific sound. Far too often we are listening to and follow the wrong sound!  For example, David was instructed to listen for a specific sound - the sound of marching.    

Next, the sound was in a designated pace - the tree tops.  Not on the ground, nor in the air, but in the top of the mulberry tree.

So because Jehovah Perazim had already preceded David, he (David) was able to be victorious.

Our God is still operating as Jehovah Perazim today.  He has broken through enemy territory and is permitting us to recover all! 

 On yesterday, we talked about a mystical bird in West Africa called the Sankofa.  The motto of this bird is “Take It Back”.  What’s distinct about this bird is that its feet are facing forward, while its head is facing backward.  Our Jehovah Perazim is reminding us to keep in our minds the miracles, signs and wonders that the Lord has previously manifested; as we walk forward into our new places, dreams and aspirations. 

But we must LISTEN for our specific marching orders. 

 Don’t lose faith; which will permit a delay in your recovery.  Don’t become discouraged - which can cause you not to hear or recognize the voice of God concerning His specific instructions; advising you how and when to advance - and recover all!

Just as David did…. Seek the face of God, Reference the former manifestations of God’s hand, Listen for the Sound, and March your way to victory.  KEEP THE FAITH!!

“Faith is like Wi-Fi…..its invisible, but it has the power to connect  you to whatever you need!

“Faith is the reality of what we hope for, the proof of what we don’t see.”  Hebrews 11:1
