From His heart to yours...
Why do we choose to listen to the voice of evil over God...knowing that this voice will only lead us down paths that will make us more distant from the God we truly need? Don't we realize that the voice of evil is only meant to lure us away from the best that God longs to offer us?
Is it that we don't recognize the voice of evil...because we have disconnected ourselves from a powerful voice of discernment...One that once came from God's heart to ours?
Have we become so caught up in life; that we are now allowing life to become one of Satan's tactics...one that can keep us more deeply connected with him?
Isn't it amazing how Satan can get us to believe that life will go much better; if we would only follow the path that he is bidding us to take? Satan thinks and even tries to convince us that he can give us so much more in life...and that we don't need the help of God to achieve it; when all along, he doesn't have the power to help us at all...only the power to bring us down.
Today, can we say that God has become more profound in our lives? When we not only know of God; but truly know Him; then this alone should allow us to tune out the voice of evil from our thoughts, while allowing us to anticipate God's response...and once we are able to truly recognize the voice of God within our spirits; then this will help us to shun the voice of evil...and the temptations that have been plotted and planned by Satan, to take us down.
God is saying...to let Him exchange the dry and barren moments of your life, for the presence of a God that can saturate your being with His Holy Spirit...and become a protective barrier; that will keep evil out, while drawing you closer to Him.
