God’s voice is not one that obsesses over things.
God’s voice calms.
God’s voice does not bring fear, because God is never fearful (so why would He speak to us as if He was?)
It brings comfort.
God’s voice is not shouting threats at us.
It’s the voice of Hope.
God’s voice is not one of confusion.
It’s the voice of Truth.
Make sure you are checking in on which voice you are listening to right now.
Because friends, if you think the enemy doesn’t have his hands all over everything that’s going on right now, I’d encourage you to reconsider.
Be wise and be on guard, of course.
But know that even though bad things can happen, there is an enemy using all that’s happening in the world to destroy our faith and steal our joy.
And this enemy? All he does is lie. He doesn’t know how to do anything else.
He is the father of lies. He created them and uses them on us.
Please don’t be naive, he is looking directly at you trying to pull you into his schemes too.
So friend, be alert and aware.
The swirling of scary thoughts in your mind is not from your Father.
The pit in your stomach does not change the power of your God.
Make sure you are listening for the voice that actually knows what the future holds.
Choose His voice to be your truth.
And if you are wondering..
He sounds like peace.
