Deuteronomy 28:1 ….And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the Lord thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth:
Thinking back almost 25 years ago, I remember us confessing in church over and over that we are the head and not the tail! I remember seeing people continuing in the same situation that they were in when they began to confess the Word of God. We are the head and not the tail! Then, I began to realize that in order for this scripture to come to fruition to the people of God, we must obey what’s contained in the scripture.
The Scripture says, “It shall come to pass, if you listen and take in diligently the voice of the Lord your God, you shall be above all nations.” The key here is, if you hear His voice and follow His voice diligently, then it shall come to pass that you will have influence over the nations.
One of the things that I began to find out is that I shouldn’t focus on understanding and practicing hearing the voice of God. In hearing His voice, I realize that my success is contingent upon Him bringing me to a place of being the head and not the tail, above only and not beneath.
When you look at the life of David, he didn’t rise above all nations until he had a relationship with God. He understood God’s voice and was able to discern when God was speaking versus his emotions and pride. If we are going to have success we must practice hearing the voice of God. But foremost, we must understand how God speaks to us.
There are generally four ways in which God speaks to us.
- He speaks to us by our inner witness.
- He speaks to us through divine revelation.
- He speaks to us by dreams and visions.
- He speaks by common communication with his voice.
If you could learn how to be still, listen, unplug from the world and all of its distractions and submit your mind to the voice of God, you will find yourself in a position to be directed by The Holy Spirit to be the head and not the tail!Share
