Voices are everywhere, bombarding us about everything.
- Look this way, dress that way…
- Be this size or else you won’t fit into the “norm”…
- Work at home mom’s keep their children from…..
- Stay at home mom’s keep their children from…
- You can’t pray this way in this place
- If you want to be a success then…
- If you are as good as you say you are then…
- You can’t do it…
- You can do it….
So many things, so much to do and so much to juggle.
I understand. I get it.
I have a family, I work a full time job, I run a Non Profit, I volunteer with various ministries and I faithfully attend church, along with a whole host of other things I do, people I hear and voices that are always telling me… “over here…listen to me…”
In reality, I need to focus on the ONE Voice. The Voice of truth. God’s voice, for in the end if I am to hear that precious voice say “Well Done….” then I need to focus my attention on His voice each day.
At the beginning of each day, start your day asking God to help you focus on Him and what He would have you to do. When your day ends, thank Him for having done so.
When doubt and discouragement creep in as they often do through all the voices that come at us each day, remember the Voice of Truth that tells you that
“Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.”
Or the Voice of Truth that tells us
“Matthew 19:26 But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.”
We need to forget about living up to society standards and live up to Christ’s expectations.
We need to stop listening to what Hollywood says is acceptable and hear what Christ says is right, pure and just.
We need to stop listening to those voices that won’t matter when Heaven is our reward, that never cared for us and start focusing on the One who always cares for us, the One who always loves us and the ONE who died for us.
When you Call on the Lord, make no mistake…HE will answer! You may or may not like his answer. Will you listen to the voice of truth even when you don’t agree or even when you don’t understand? Will you trust the voice of truth to give you courage to step out and do what only HE can enable you to do? Will you listen when He answers?
Will you listen to the Voice of Truth, or will you let doubt, fear and discouragement drown out His precious voice?
The Voice of Truth… what is HE telling you?
