What do these voices want?
“My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out of my hand.” – John 10:27-28
Someone once said life is full of choices and I would say it’s hard to find a truer statement than that.
With that in mind I would like to share what Grace has taught me about the two voices that create the choices in my life.
While I have come to learn that God knows the choice I will make before I do and He already has His provisions in place for me no matter what happens. I have also grown in awareness that the devil is in the distractions!
Which is better to create combat ineffective Christian soldiers?
1) To distract them into thinking they are on the right path
2) To be obvious and blatantly in the face
If anyone ever said the devil was stupid – they lied to you!
Any voice, any thought or idea that takes you away from LOVE – is Not from God!
The devil has a voice and it sounds like worry about the future, shame over the past but it also sounds like “should” and “what if” and “you can’t do that it’s impossible” and “you will fail!”
God has a voice and it sounds like “Peace I give you” and “I Am Love” and “Love one Another” and “I will never leave you or forsake you” and “I will prepare a way for you where there is no way” and “Come to me and I will give you rest.”
Only one of these voices offers Life Abundant! Only one of these voices offers rest! Only one offers peace that passes ALL human understanding!
So much of your life and the quality of it will be determined by the voice you listen to – choose wisely!
Thank you very much!
May Gob Bless you as well!
You know Bob, it amazes me just how much we think and feel alike. lol
I really got into this short but sweet write.
It is written, quite plainly, be ever vigilant, for the devil roams the Earth like a roaring lion, looking for whom he may devour and destroy.
But, it is also written, and simply put, RESIST the devil and he will flee from you!!!
We, God’s Chosen, are covered by His grace and the devil knows he cannot penetrate it.
So he looks for other ways to get to God’s children, and he IS very good at that, in fact no one is better.
He is called the Master Deceiver for a reason!
He uses is old position, appearing as an angel of light, so that he may blind and thus leading the individual to destruction.
Sadly, it works more times than not.
Thank you again Bob.
Thank you for sharing and Yes – we have nothing to fear once in Christ!
I find that the biggest part of the journey for me is listening to the right
voice and seeing the need of others before my own physical pleasure.
Praise God – we do think alike as we are on the same journey brother!
This is The Journey by Grace through the road of Faith toward The ever
increasing and bright Light of Love, Peace and Healing!
Journey on my Amazing Brother – Journey on!!
