He Who Has An Ear…….

Deut.13:18 “When thou shalt harken to the voice of the Lord thy God,to keep all his commandments which I command thee this day,to do that which is right in the eyes of the Lord thy God”.

We live in a sophisticated age where technology rules.This high-tech living causes us to hear many voices,radio “shock jocks”,television talk show host, and outrageous sitcoms that offer everything but comedy. We are inundated with noise, yet in spite of all that we hear, there are really only two voices to be heard. The voice of the almighty God, and the voice of the enemy, Satan. The bible is full of many who listened to the wrong voices,The Hebrews in the wilderness, Jonah, Job, Hannah, Abraham, Rebekah, and a host of others at one time found themselves listening to the voice of lack and limitations, but they soon heard the voice of God and did what was right.
Both voices come from different forms, through any type of medium. The voice of God may direct you to do that which seems least desirable, while the lure of satan seems to call us to paradise. Many of us have muddled our lives because we have not listened to the right voice. We must remember the devil is a liar, he is incapable of telling the truth. Jesus is our shepherd, He is our provider, He leads us along on this journey, He will take care of us and our every need. Every person is free to listen to what ever voice he/she wishes, but when we confessed to be Christians, we no longer belong to ourselves, and once you’ve chosen there is no turning back, and being His sheep we must hear His voice and obey it. His voice the right voice, tells us that we are to seek out that which serves others as well as ourself. It tells us to put the needs of others before our own. It tells us to love inspite of. It tells us to be Christ like even when all others have fallen away. It tells us to follow Jesus even when the road seems to┬árough to travel.
If we listen to the wrong voices, we will be full of fear and worry about doing God’s will. The wrong voices fills our head with negative, limited thinking. From the wrong voices we get the what if’s, these are the voices that get us in trouble. The truth is God will take care of us. When we obey the voice of God, he will never bring us to a place and leave us alone.
