Late at night, the TV commercial asks;
“Do you have headaches and trouble falling sleep? Are you exhausted, irritable, achy and constipated? This is SERIOUS! You need OUR prescription drugs!
We HEAR that word, we have FAITH in that word and we IDENTIFY with that word.
Now, we start to think, “OMG! I DO need that drug!!!”
A few minutes ago we were just FINE, but now we’re convinced that we could be DYING! What’s up with that?
What Are We Listening To?
If we just follow our FEELINGS all the time, it’s easy to be DECEIVED.
But if we stop and LISTEN to the Holy Spirit in us, we will usually hear something WISE like;
“This is TOO good to be true.”
“I think they may be LYING to me.”
“Go back to SLEEP and don’t worry about it.”
“Everything is going to be ALRIGHT!”
Faith Comes By Hearing
I don’t have to tell you, there’s a lot of NOISE in the world competing for our attention.
Let’s turn off the television and turn on some good WORSHIP music.
Let’s get our hands on more books and electronic media of sound Christian TEACHING.
Try spending more quiet time TALKING with God and reading HIS BOOK.
Guard Your Heart!
Remember, we can’t always share our DREAMS and GOALS with well-meaning friends and relatives.
This thing that God has called US to do, might sound a little WEIRD to them.
We CAN guard our hearts and make sure the ONLY advice we choose to HEAR is Godly advice.
Let every man be a liar and God’s Word be TRUE!
