Voice activation is where you use your own words to activate things and this is not something new. In April 2011 Apple launches Siri, the first digital assistant and we were all wowed by the technology where you can say things and the technology responded. Hay Siri! What's the weather forecast today? Hay Siri! Turn the volume up.

In the ministry of Jesus have you wondered how many people came to Jesus to pray for them compared to Jesus just releasing the miracle power of the Holy Spirit. Jesus just released His faith when He spoke and, in many cases, it was the individual’s faith that released the power of the Holy Spirit.
We get free from shyness, rejection, insecurity and rejection by repentance. Repentance means to change our mind or change our thinking.
