Who to hear?
Have you ever stopped to wonder how many voices we hear every day?
There are many … including the voices of our family members, friends, strangers, famous, and of those who dictate fashion and also of our own “I”.
Do you know that voice inside of you that always wants to give its own opinion—the one that seems like the voice of the serpent that tempted Eve in the Garden of Eden?
It always has something negative to add, like … “You can’t do it, you don’t need to, why so much effort, it’s not exactly like that…” that is, it’s always trying to put you down. Or that voice: “It’s just today! Nothing will happen if you just do it once, God understands that the flesh is weak “ or ” God understands that you need to lie. The situation leaves you no other choice! “
That’s what the voice of our “I” does. It always wants to prevail without thinking of the consequences. Of course, the devil does not waste time, knowing what makes your eyes sparkle; he takes care of preparing a trap!
But how to hear God’s voice, the voice of faith?
Bear with me … When you know a person very well, whether it’s family, friend, you recognize his/her voice, sometimes even by the steps you know that he/she is coming, or by the door knock, or the way he/she rings the bell, you know who it is! Your coexistence with that person allowed you to be so close, that you recognize when he/she is around.
It is the same with the voice of God! The more you are interested to hear Him, have pleasure in seeking Him, talking to Him, making Him your friend, it will be more clearer to distinguish when it’s Him guiding you and it will be more easier to know what He expects of you!
To recognize the voice of God, you must know Him!
When God speaks, He leaves no doubt!
A hug and see you next week!
