Happy New Month Beautiful People,i know it’s a noisy world out there BUT who knows how many voices helpful or not we have in our heads? Words have power, and they can change us for the better or for the worse. If we constantly hear that we’re a failure or that we’re not good enough, talented enough, pretty enough, or smart enough, then we eventually risk believing those lies. And listening to those wrong voices can cripple and immobilize us. It will influence what we do in life and shape who we become.
But God has empowered us to hear him above all others. As John 10:27 says, “My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me.”
To hear God’s voice above all else in this season of uncertainty: –
Immerse yourself in God’s Word. Make time every day to read Scripture. Memorize verses about God’s love for you. Meditate on those words. You’ll find life in them!
Replace lies with God’s promises and truth. When you find yourself thinking about, talking about, or listening to things that don’t line up with God’s truth, take action. Declare all the good things that God has for you today and in your future.
Use discernment in who and what you listen to. When you are listening to affirming, life-giving, hope-filled messages in line with God’s truth, you’ll be better able to hear his voice when he calls you.
Let God be the first One you go to for comfort, wisdom, insight, and discernment. His truth is timeless and eternal, and his guidance is always reliable.
When you internalize God’s truth, everything changes. Your confidence builds on the foundation of his unfailing love for you and he will help you stand firm when life’s inevitable storms strike. You will be stronger and take greater risks because you will have the faith to believe that God is who he says he is and that he will do all that he has promised. God’s truth is a lifeline you can hold on to. You can counter the noise and lies of the world with the life-giving truth of his Word.
