The Power Of One Voice
4 So Esther’s maids and eunuchs came and told her, and the queen was deeply distressed. Then she sent garments to clothe Mordecai and take his sackcloth away from him, but he would not accept them.

Today our country is honoring Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. This special holiday has been set aside, to honor a man who used his voice to unite instead of divide. He preached love instead of hate and he encouraged instead of discouraged. He also used his voice to give hope for a better future for those who were oppressed. His approach and his stance were always nonviolent in nature, not only was he nonviolent, but he encouraged others to be nonviolent as well.
This one-man proved, that if you stand for a purpose that will bless the lives of others, your legacy will indeed live on through those who are the beneficiaries of your sacrifice.
What is abundantly clear is that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s one voice became the voice of millions. It is also abundantly clear that God was leading him for a divine purpose. Don’t ever forget that there is power in your one voice when you have a divine purpose. His one voice was connecting to others, to bring changes that would affect generations to come. I truly believe that we all have a voice that can make a difference. Our platform may be different, but we all have a God-given voice.
May I ask you; What difference you are making with your voice? Are you speaking on behalf of the homeless, unwed mothers, abused wives, abused children, human trafficking, or the mentally ill, etc. The list literally could go on and on. Where is your passion? Because wherever your passion is, is where your voice should be also. Your voice can be used in your community, your church, your job, and your home.
Today I challenge you to get clear as to where your voice will be the most impactful. This will require much prayer, getting still before the Father, and listening to His voice as He gently directs you. Be brave and speak up. The world will be blessed by what you have to say.
The time to start is now!
