Inner Voices

Lion of Judah

Break forth into your freedom!

“No weapon formed against you shall prosper; and every tongue which rises against you in judgment - you shall condemn. This is the heritage of the Servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is from Me, says the LORD.”  (Isaiah 54:17)

Attempts to destroy you come as encounters aimed at your identity more than your eternity. As your life’s journey unfolds, it carries its real purpose in the perceptions you have in every experience. God’s Word reminds us that no weapon formed against you is to carry any real authority in your battle. The same verse speaks of “tongues that rise in judgment against us – we shall condemn”. 

Weapons – External Voices: 

Enemies arise to rob our future through their voice. It might be impossible to stop criticism and accusations, which wound and tear into our emotional life like daggers, but God has not left us defenseless. The weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, arguments and high things that exalt themselves above the knowledge of God. We bring every thought into captivity and make every voice bow its knee to Christ as Lord (2 Cor. 10:3-6).

Giving Up or Breaking Through:

It really is up to you. External voices which challenge the choices you make are connected to thoughts and can position you at the brink of giving up or breaking through. What must be understood about these voices is that there is a spirit behind their influence. Perhaps nothing can be done about the words themselves, but we can silence the effect upon us by releasing them to God and calling them into obedience.

Enemy Strongholds:

Satan’s goal is to turn external voices into internal voices through “demonic strongholds”. These demonic strongholds are simply houses of thought and perceptions ruled or governed by demons. Inner voices create internal dialogue that condemn and confuse our identity. We have limited knowledge as to whether the devil can read our minds, but we do know he can watch our activity and plant temptation and destructive experiences before us. Painful voices from yesterday’s experience often remain etched upon our minds and continually echo in our thoughts. These inner voices aim to destroy our identity and confidence in Christ, as well as undermine our faith in God’s Word.

An Established Heritage:

Take hold of your heritage as a Servant of God! You can silence the inner voices by drawing authority from the Word of God and your personal testimony as a believer (Rev. 12:11). Strength will arise and shut down the effectiveness of those demonic thought patterns within your mind. You are a re-created being with supernatural power in your spirit man. Destroying the residue of inner voices releases you from their control. Hear only the voice of God (1 Cor 2:9-16). Learn to live from the inside out. You can have a new beginning with a liberty to discover the person God created you to be! Celebrate hearing His voice as your new freedom begins to emerge!

  • One of my favorite praise songs…

No weapon formed against me shall prosper! All those who rise up against me shall fall! I will not fear what the devil may bring me… I am a Servant of God! Oh, I am a Servant of God!
