There is a prophetic sound going out to many; it is a call of the Holy Spirit.

You may hear it through a report or message that stirs your heart. It may come through something you read or see. It could come in a dream, or an encounter with God.

And in that moment, you experience a Divine collision.

The sound of the destiny God has created you for, has reached you. It has touched your heart and you will never be the same.

The Prophetic Sound of a Disturbing Report

Nehemiah was serving at the king’s palace in a privileged position as cupbearer. When relatives came to visit, they brought firsthand reports from the city of Jerusalem (Neh 1).

As Nehemiah heard the story of Jerusalem’s broken walls, the truth about the condition of the people and place he loved struck him forcefully.

That report was a prophetic sound that touched Nehemiah’s heart and he began to weep, pray and intercede.

Within a short space of time, Nehemiah was launched into a mission that would change the landscape of history.

There will be times when a report or story intersects with your prophetic calling.

God may use the voices of others, or stories that are being shared.

And like Nehemiah, God has called you to be the solution to a problem. He has called you to be the answer to someone’s cry for help.

You are about to discover what your experience and history has been all about.

When Esther Heard a Distressing Report

Queen Esther received a report from her cousin Mordecai (Esther 4). The verbal account of the edict made by Haman—an enemy who wanted to destroy her people—touched Esther’s heart. That news set in motion a series of events through which God used Esther and Mordecai to save the Jews.

Like Esther, there is something you are created for that only you can do. It is your prophetic purpose.

No cost, no risk will be too great. For the greatest prize of your life and calling lies ahead.

The Prophetic Sound of a Move of God

For Naomi, the report that moved her towards her destiny was an uplifting one that brought hope in the midst of her pain. (see Ruth 1)

  • Naomi heard stories that God had visited his people in Bethlehem by giving them bread

The rumour of God’s goodness awoke her heart. Naomi’s destiny and calling, and that of her daughter-in-law Ruth, was ahead in Bethlehem, Judah.

As happened with Naomi, it may be a report of a work of the Holy Spirit that draws your attention.

You hear of a move of God and in that moment, you know you are meant to be a part of it. Fire is ignited in your heart.

The trajectory of your life is set before you.

In a moment ordained by God, your heart is stirred to action. It is a move of the Holy Spirit and nothing can hold you back.

A Prayer Movement

There are moments in our lives, when our heart is awakened by a prophetic sound.

Our prophetic calling lies ahead. But first, it must be prepared through prayer and intercession.

  • Nehemiah prayed and then he was ready to be a part of the answer
  • Esther called for a community fast—only then, was she ready to risk her life

A great door of favor and influence was about to swing wide open.

The Prophetic Sound in a Dream or Vision

The Apostle Paul had a vision in the night—and heard a man from Macedonia calling to him, ‘Come over and help us!’

It may not have been a physical sound, but it was, nonetheless, a cry for help. It was being released from the very heart of God on behalf of people who needed to hear the Gospel.

And that sound determined the direction of Paul’s missionary team. It changed history.

There is a cry that is heard in heaven, a plea for help. It is converging with your calling and it echoes in the very chambers of heaven.

All of heavens resources are being brought to bear.

Receive Your Heavenly Awakening

We are at an appointed time when God is awakening prophetic callings, dreams and destinies.

It is also time to recall to mind past encounters with God—and in particular, those moments you have been impacted by a prophetic sound.

You may not be near a throne, as Esther and Nehemiah were. But know this for sure: In God’s kingdom, there are no small people and no small places.

You are loved and called by God.

  1. I’m still waiting on God. I’m still do not know how to hear from him. I have many questions to ask God. My youngest son William has a lip inflammation for years, been to the hospital 2 years and they don’t know how to help him. 4 years ago I used to take him to church and ask pastors who supposed to be miracle healer but still waiting for miracle. Now my son lost trust and will not want to be prayed for. Just wondering when will God answer our prayers and let my son get instant healing and experience miracles. I wish I have the healing touch of God. When I touch, William will be healed instantly. I have also been praying for his salvation and my daughter Caroline and her fiance salvation. I really hope I can hear from God and experience his presence. Then I can talk to God my other issues as well. Im still learning and hope God will talk to me soon.

    1. Hello LiLi, I am praying with you right now for your children, oh how He loves your family! Know that Holy Spirit is at work even though you do not see outward signs. I also agree with you for your son’s healing, in Jesus’ Name.

  2. Hi! What an awesome word! Your blog and videos on YouTube are always so enlightening and empowering! God is speaking! I believe a Divine shift is taking place and His true sons and daughters as described in Romans 8 are coming forth! It is time to fly and embrace the call! God bless you woman of God!

  3. Hi Hele
    Thank you so much ch for the way you pour yourself into the Kingdom and let God use you in such a special way. Could you please pray for me as I step out into a new season where God has planted me and my husband. We feel His calling to draw the broken to the Fathers heart and into their true identities as sins and daughters as He has done for us. He is stretching and challenging us into greater ministry and places we haven’t walked before. It’s exciting but we need to be obedient and faithful and just take the next step in faith. I’m praying for a double portion of faith and grace and anointing and blessing. I honour you and bless you today. Sherry

There is a mountain standing before me I am in debt pray for me Helen to find ways and means to overcome this giant I am very much encouraged by this prophetic teaching about Gedion because I was looking down upon myself thinking that because I have no education back. ground how can I be called. Now I am inspired because God is using my lack of education as a stepping stone to take me to a higher level . Pray for me for spiritual growth and clear vision .Amen
