Voice & Vision

“And the Lord said, Behold, they are one people and they have all one LANGUAGE; and this is only the beginning of what they will do, and now nothing they have IMAGINED they can do will be impossible for them.” (Genesis‬ ‭11‬:‭6‬ ‭AMPC‬‬)

The Bible mentions two instances where the people of God joined together in agreement according to one vision and in unity of voice. When these two principles were combined, the impossible became possible.

First in the Old Testament, Noah’s offspring tried to build a tower to fulfill their ungodly desires. Because they were of one purpose, in one place, and one language, nothing could stop them but God Himself. And He did. God confused their language and displaced the people. (see Genesis 11). No communication and no contact = Defeat.

Later in the New Testament, Jesus’ disciples gathered in one place (the Upper Room) and for one purpose (to wait). In this moment, God unified their language and purpose with the outpouring of the Holy Spirit (Acts 2). ONE Voice + ONE Vision = VICTORY!

Nothing is impossible with God (Luke 1:37), or for Jesus’ followers, as we learn to discern the voice of the Holy Spirit and seek a common kingdom vision.
