Instantly, the Holy Spirit spoke to my heart and said, "I speak to you and so many others every day, however I can't make you listen!" That was a huge chunk God proceeded to feed to me, and I can't lie, it was a tough pill to swallow because I felt embarrassingly convicted. You see, I too have been guilty of allowing the noise of life to drown out the voice of God; of allowing the thoughts revolving in my head to trump the truth I knew in my heart; of turning a deaf ear to wisdom, all for the sake of selfishness and narcissism. Some of us have put so much distance between ourselves and God, that we wouldn't know His voice if it was screaming in our ear! So what exactly are you to do if you find yourself guilty of failure to clear the clutter out of your mind, heart, and soul?
In college we used to say that "Real Recognizes Real!" That leads to what we must do first and foremost, which is to acknowledge and submit to the Voice of Reason, the Voice of Correction, the Voice of God! Secondly, you must put God back in His rightful place, which is in your heart! If you live your life according to the principles of the Bible, by default you win! God instantly is in everything that you do and any person, place, or thing that attempts to pull you further away from him, you will put distance between immediately. So today, make sure you pay close attention to the voices you give your attention to. Put as much distance as you can between yourself and bad habits; between yourself and negativity; between yourself and toxic relationships; instead of what we typically do in the face of adversity, which is to distance ourselves from our family, our friends, and God Himself!
Well that's my time Ladies & Gentlemen and I thank you for yours! Make today Memorable by only giving your time, talent, attention, and energy to the Voice of God!
