What’s the difference between the counterfeit and the real thing? Simply, the ability to recognize the difference between the two. Without proper discernment and heavenly guidance in ALL of life’s situations, you could abort your destiny. In this hour, deception is high, but what are you doing to prevent yourself from being captured in the enemies’ snare?
Quite honestly, it’s interesting how we never understand the true worthiness behind hearing God’s voice, until we are knee-deep in disaster. Why must it take for us to go off path, to finally seek the voice of our shepherd? It makes me think of how much of His voice is sounded out by our worldly desires.
How much greater would our lives be, if we seek the Lord ahead of the issue? Instead of stumbling around in the dark, God’s wisdom will bring us the light we need to swerve left or right onto His cleared path. This way, we live life with ease and lessen the chance of damage or dis-ease.
So here’s the fix: Desire the voice of God just as much as you desire the hand of God.
"My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out of my hand."
John 10:27-28 NIV
"I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you."
Psalm 32:8 NIV
"Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it.”"
Isaiah 30:21 NIV
"She is a tree of life to those who take hold of her; those who hold her fast will be blessed. By wisdom the Lord laid the earth’s foundations, by understanding he set the heavens in place."
Proverbs 3:18-19 NIV
