Voices, voices, voices lots of voices. All talking at the same time inside of my head. I'm hearing lots of voices sometimes they are shoutong, sometimes they are whispering but do I actually listen to what they are saying. Yes most of the time I do BUT am I goin to continue listening to the lies the enemy is saying to me or am I goin to start listening to Gods voice and what he wants to say to me. Again it all comes down to making a choice.
2 Corinthians 10:5
We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.
So whatever old lies that we believed about ourselves come back saying that we are stupid, worthless, flawed, incapable, inadequate. We have the power to take these thoughts captive. We can think new thoughts based on God's truth. We can talk back to the lies. We have to learn to speak truth over ourselves. Encourage yourself, build yourself up. When the past screams, "you are useless, hopeless, not good enough, you will never measure up! We need to tell ourselves truths like these & this is where we need to listen to Gods voice.
We are Fearfully and Wonderfully made (psalm 139:14)
We are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus (2 Corinthians 5:21)
Greater is he who is in us than he who is in the world (1 John 4:4)
We are greatly loved by God (Romans 1:7 Ephesians 2:4 Colossians 3:12)
We can do all things through Christ who strengthens us ( Philippians 4:13)
We are God's workmanship, created in Christ for good works (Ephesians 2:10)
So suppose what I'm trying to say is as well as hearing God's voice we need to be listening to the truth and the promises that he gives us so when the enemy tries to come in and speak lies we can say No because we are safe in the arms of Jesus and we are leaning on God's promises. So remember to jus not hear but to listen also
Amen! One of the things I do in order to remind myself of what God says is to write it down on sticky notes and post them where I can see them. In other words, I
stick God's Word in front of my face!
And you have tried to say that you are not hearing from God at the minute? Away and catch yerself on.
This is fantastic, and something you have been trying to drum into my head for weeks now.. Good solid teaching. Proud of ya hon.
