With a world-wide “pandemic” on the line (or during any sort of crisis) now is a great time to ask yourself:
WHO/WHAT IS THE ULTIMATE AUTHORITY IN MY LIFE?
Your friend who works in a hospital?
Some unknown person on Facebook who says they have witnessed this or that?
The National Enquirer?
Someone who follows “Q”?
And the list could go on and on….
What I’m NOT Saying: I am NOT saying that the above mentioned are all liars who should be silenced. Maybe some are but that’s for each of us to decide. The opinions of people we trust, who’ve proven themselves to be consistently trustworthy and honest, should most certainly be considered.
What I AM Saying: Have you ever heard of that funny saying – “It ain’t over until the fat lady sings”?
Our thought processes should be like that – not over until we hear from our ULTIMATE AUTHORITY – YHWH Himself. Once you hear what HE thinks about a matter, all other voices should become very faint. Some even become silent. Once you hear what HE thinks about a matter, your heart will align with His Will and purposes.
NEWSFLASH: THE VOICES YOU LISTEN TO ARE A DIRECT REFLECTION OF THE KINGDOM YOU LIVE IN AND UNDER!
It’s time to ask oneself: Why, oh why, do we silence the One Voice that makes the most difference?
“My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.” – John 10:27
“And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.” – Jeremiah 29:13
“To Him who rides on the heaven of heavens, which were of old! Indeed, He sends out His voice, a mighty voice.” – Psalm 68:33
During this season, and all seasons, I pray that you press into God like never before. May you learn to quiet all other voices, including your own, in order to receive true wisdom directly from the Father. May all the chicken littles of the world become faint.
May His voice always be the loudest, clearest voice you hear. May you glow in the confidence of knowing that you are His child. May you grow deeper in the knowledge of the fact that faith, hope, and love are your inheritance. May the Kingdom of God become your reality! You are so very loved – now and always.
