Does your environment recognize your voice? If it does not, it should. I have come to realize that Satan wants us to be quiet and not speak to, rebuke, or declare things into our environment. When our voice is silent, then other voices can have the preeminence.

This concept became very clear to me after consultation with the technician at the Apple Store. I noticed when I talked into my Ipad that some of the words that it was supposed to record were misconstrued and either no word or some other word replaced what I had initially said. I asked the technician why this was happening, and he said my Ipad did not recognize my voice, and I needed to speak into it often for it to build and establish recognition. It hit me this same principle had a spiritual application.

As a believer, I have the right and responsibility to take charge of my atmosphere/environment. The power of God in me equips me to rule, and I cannot be a silent ruler. Therefore, I must continuously utilize the following verbs:

1. Rebuke: express strong disapproval, reprimand, censure, check, restrain, silence, stop, put down, or criticize. In Mark 4:35-41 Jesus rebuked the winds that were causing havoc to the boat in which he and the disciples were riding. The winds were making the boat unstable and producing flooding.

2. Speak to: address, express thoughts, and opinions, verbalize, or articulate. Jesus also spoke to the waves/sea and told it how to act (what to do). The waves of the sea had an overpowering effect; it caused loss of control, coldness, and hampered visibility.

3. Declare: pronounce ruling, emphatic announcement, express something loudly, proclaim, speak out, or assert. In Psalm 2:7, David says he will declare the decree of what the Lord hath said, and throughout that book, he declares the glory, righteousness, works, acts, and doings of God. As believers, it is necessary to declare to issues in our lives who God is and what He does.

These three verbs are simplistic but powerful when incorporated into our daily living, and because we use them often, our atmosphere will recognize and obeys our voice. Also, your day may be peaceful and uneventful, so you have not utilized these words today, but you can also use these words to assist someone else. Remember, never miss an opportunity to advance and enhance the kingdom of God for others and yourself.
