Why God Longs for You to Find Your Voice Again

by | Jul 16, 2021 | Purpose & Identity

The human voice is powerful. It has the capacity to build up, tear down, bring to life or curse to death. James describes the tongue as a rudder that sets the course of our lives. The voice is also vulnerable. It’s directly connected to our personhood and identity. Science has proven that our DNA contains a specific sound. Each person has a unique and significant voice. When we say someone “has a voice,” or has “found/lost their voice” we refer to their ability to freely communicate with a sense of creativity, confidence, significance and impact in their relationships, realms of influence and in communion with God.

For us to find our voice, we must first be found by the voice of the one who designed us. The voice of God apprehends the human heart and aligns us with who we are and whose we are. Everything is under subjection to God’s voice. Our ability to live and move and have our being is directly derived from the Word of God, the voice of God.

In the Garden of Eden, it is God’s voice that called Adam back to his identity. God shouted, “Where are you?” But He hadn’t lost Adam. Adam had lost truth and needed to recognize he was lost. It took the searching sound of God’s voice to recalibrate Adam to who he was created to be. The word used in Genesis to describe God’s voice calling out to Adam and Eve is the same word used for singing, thundering and the sound of an instrument. God’s voice reverberated through the garden like an accosting trumpet blast. It was a song of God’s longing, jealous heart over Adam and Eve.

A similar description is used of Jesus, God’s voice manifested in flesh, as “the voice behind” John in Revelation 1 calling him up to a heavenly perspective. When God sings and shouts His song over us, it calls us to truth, heaven’s perspective, our identity and the unlocking of our voice

There’s a responsive sound from us God longs to receive in return. Our voice is divinely designed, composed of vocal cords, windpipe, lungs and a mouthpiece that are connected to mind, will and emotions, governed by the Spirit. His Spirit fills us with revelation like a breath inhaled, and we exhale melodic phrases to God. We are fashioned as living musical instruments. There is a song that He forges in our journey with Him for which He longs to hear.

The Lord speaks through the prophet Hosea, singing over the adulterous bride, Israel. God sings, “Therefore, I will allure her, and bring her into the wilderness, and speak tenderly to her” (Hos. 2:14.) In this same way, God deals with us. Places of compromise, devastation or weeping can become doors of hope. God sometimes takes people through struggles to unlock their voice and teach them to sing again. He will allow them to go through dry, hard or lonely seasons. In that place, He will sing His love song over them and give them the opportunity to find Him and their individual true sound. God sings and dances over people, unlocking the songs of their hearts spiritually as well as literally. (See Zeph. 3:17.)

Is it time for you to find your voice, pick up your instrument, write, sing, paint or move again? His voice is calling you out: “For now the winter has past; the rain is over and gone. The flowers appear on the earth; the time of singing has come … let me see your face, let me hear your voice; for your voice is sweet, and your face is lovely” (Songs 2:8,14b-16).
