TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
I created you with emotions. It was not by accident. When you shout, you release emotions. You may be desperate or overcome with joy. Go ahead, shout out to me. Shout out for me. I honor your motive and your emotion.
SHOUT IT OUT!
There are many instances in the Bible where they “shouted.” There is a prophetic shout for declaring what’s going to happen, and there is another shout for when a thing is fulfilled.
“Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion! Shout, O daughter of Jerusalem! Behold, your King is coming to you; He is just and having salvation, Lowly and riding on a donkey, A colt, the foal of a donkey.” – Zechariah 9:9
The appropriate response to the fulfilling of prophecy is a shout. I’m telling you, shouting and prophetic works go together throughout the Bible.
“And the seventh time it happened, when the priests blew the trumpets, that Joshua said to the people: ‘Shout, for the Lord has given you the city!’” – Joshua 6:16
They shouted and the response of heaven was to bring deliverance.
“Be glad in the Lord and rejoice, you righteous; And shout for joy, all you upright in heart!” – Psalms 32:11
That’s a triumphant shout of praise.
“Let them shout for joy and be glad, Who favor my righteous cause; And let them say continually, ‘Let the Lord be magnified, Who has pleasure in the prosperity of His servant.’” – Psalms 35:27
Sometimes, you just need to shout because you know God favors you.
“Make a joyful shout to God, all the earth!” – Psalms 66:1
When it comes to praising God for His awesome works, it’s actually a command to shout. Don’t wait until all hell breaks loose and you get desperate. Don’t go through all that mess. Admit now that you’re not God and that you need Him.
Whether it’s a shout of praise or a “help me” shout, now is not the time to be all prim and proper. There must come a time when pride no longer matters. In Mark 10:47, blind Bartimaeus shouted and was told to be quiet. That brother just got louder. Because of his persistence and belief, he was healed, so, shout it out!
