If you have something to say, say it.
God woke me up in the middle of the night with a word, and I feel it in my soul that it’s one that I’m supposed to share.
When I first awoke, I kinda looked around and realized it was still completely dark outside, and I wondered if there was a sound or something that had woken me up.
I was wide awake, and plain as day, I heard, “If you have something to say, say it. Don’t be silent.”
Before I go any further, I need to be really honest with you guys. I don’t hear from God like this very often. I feel His presence very often, and I feel very connected to him almost every single day. However I do not always get words like this from Him.
I immediately recalled a video I had seen the night before that said when you receive a word or answer from God you have complete certainty, but when it’s not from God, you are left with a lot of questions and confusion.
I sat there for a minute, and I thought, “Was that God?” But I already knew the answer to that question – yes. And I made myself stop because I knew that this question was not coming from a place of curiosity, it was doubt that was creeping in trying to get me to not hear what God was telling me.
Let’s circle back to what God said.
“If you have something to say, say it. Don’t be silent.”
These past few months, I don’t think silent is the word that I would use to describe myself. I have been more active on social platforms than I have been in a long time. I’ve use my words, instead of my pictures to get my point across. God is constantly giving me some thing to say, something worth using my voice for. I’ve been really intentional, and I’ve tried to be really consistent. My whole focus these last few months has just been to spread the word of God, and my goal on social media has been that when people come to my pages or see my videos that one of the first things they recognize is that Christ is in me.
So I sat there and reflected on what I had just heard, “If you have something to say, say it. Don’t be silent.” There’s a reason God told me this, and maybe it’s not because I’ve been silent, maybe it’s because I’m starting to wonder if what I’m saying is having an impact.
Or, and maybe He gave me this word, because He wanted me to share it. I’ve been using my voice for Him for a while now, and maybe He knew that if He told me this, I would repeat it.
Maybe this word wasn’t even for me, maybe I’m just a vessel. Maybe that’s the whole point, if I have something to say, say it. Don’t be silent. Saying these very words out loud to others is the very thing that I have to say right now.
So I say to you: if you have something to say, say it out loud. Don’t be silent.
There is so much noise around us right now, and it’s only getting louder by the minute. You have a voice, God has given you things to say, and now it’s your turn to say it. You must not be silent.
