TOPIC: The Power of Sound
SCRIPTURE: It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life. John 6:63.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: What you hear transmits the spirit in the sound into your life because every sound has a spirit.
Sound has been confirmed to carry a dimension of power. There is power in sound, and this power has implications for your faith. The right sound has the power to keep your faith alive.
Now, what is the power of sound?
i. What you hear determines what you can believe; it also determines what you fear.
Faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the Word of God (Romans 10:17).
Fear also cometh by hearing.
Deuteronomy 17:13 says, And all the people shall hear, and fear, and do no more presumptuously.
Can you see? All Israel shall hear and fear.
Please understand this: What you hear can either build your faith or groom you fear.
ii. What you hear transmits the spirit in the sound into your life.
What you hear transmits the spirit in the sound into your life because every sound has a spirit.
John 6:63 says,
It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.
What you hear transmits into your life the spirit in the sound. If the Spirit of God is in a sound, then the same spirit is transmitted via the sound. And the Spirit of God is the Spirit of faith. But if the spirit of the devil is in that sound, the spirit of the devil is transmitted, and the spirit of the devil transmits fear.
It is important to know that every kind of music carries a spirit. There are some kinds of music that usher people into immorality while others make people kill.
Beloved, beware of the music you hear. Avoid listening to or paying attention to unhealthy sound so you can keep your faith alive.
Remember This: What you hear transmits the spirit in the sound into your life because every sound has a spirit.
1. Beware of the sound you permit into your life.
2. Listen to sounds, messages or music that will lift your spirit and transform your life.
PRAYER: Thank You Lord for Your Word to me today. I receive the grace and discipline to listen to only edifying and faith-lifting sounds, music and messages, Lord, in Jesus Name.
