The Shout of A King  

Updated: Mar 2

FEBRUARY 29, 2024

No misfortune is seen in Jacob, no misery observed in Israel. The Lord their God is with them; The shout of the King is among them

Numbers 23:21 

We all shout when our team wins a match because the winning side is the shouting side. In today's scripture reading, we see Balak (whose name means "destroyer") and Balaam forming an alliance to curse the Israelites.

However, Balaam responded by saying he could not curse them because the shout of a King was in their midst. The Israelites, though unassuming, defied the schemes plotted against them because of the Shout of a King (S.O.A.K) among them. It manifested through their sacrifices, praise, and worship, indicating God's authority and leadership in their lives. You may be wondering what the Shout of a King is. It's a deliberate, joyful noise unto God, even in the midst of warfare or battles. Let's explore three ways the Shout of a King impacts us. 

The Israelites, though unassuming, defied the schemes plotted against them because of the Shout of a King (S.O.A.K) among them.

Firstly, the Shout of a King presents us guiltless before God. When God sees us, He does not see iniquity and remembers our sins no more. The Israelites, despite their shortcomings, received forgiveness and were seen as without flaws due to their relationship with God and constant repentance.

He dealt with them according to His promises and not their actions. As 2 Corinthians 5:21 tells us, "God made Him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in Him, we might become the righteousness of God." Romans 8:1 also assures us, "Now, there is therefore no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus." Because of Jesus' sacrifice, we can stand guiltless before God's grace. 

Secondly, the Shout of a King neutralizes the enemy's plans and cancels curses. Just as Balaam's attempts to curse the Israelites turned into blessings, the Shout of a King invited God into their situations, causing God to turn everything meant for evil into good. We all have "Balaams" in our lives seeking to bring us down, but God is the author of our stories. 

Lastly, the Shout of a King authorizes our dominion. Genesis 1:28 tells us to "be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it." When the Shout of a King is in our midst, this command prevails against forces seeking to bring curses and setbacks into our lives. It's a reminder that when aligned with God's purposes, nothing can stand against us. Romans 8:31 reaffirms this, saying, "If God is for us, who can be against us?" Our authority comes from God, not our own strength. 

So why act powerless when you have the Shout of a King on your side? Like the Israelites, you are never helpless; God has given you authority to leverage the Shout of a King and turn things around. God is in your corner, ready to turn curses into blessings. Imagine the transformation in our lives, churches, and communities if we raised the Shout of a King over everything. The King who turns curses into blessings is in your midst.

So, what are you waiting for? Give a shout to the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. With the Shout of a King in your midst, only His decrees will prevail over your life. He has blessed us, and no curse will stick. Amen.
