Who are you listening to?

Who are you listening to?

Acts 18:9 One night the Lord spoke to Paul in a vision: ‘Do not be afraid; keep on speaking, do not be silent.

The Lord spoke to Paul.

You have an enemy of the soul that will fill your mind with as many voices as possible. Your mind filled with the noise of repetition. The same sounds have been there for many years: condescending, derogatory, vision killing, faith destroying voices as loud as the loudest thunder, battering your mind continually. You long for a still small voice. You long for peace and order. Thank God you have God!

Away with such intimidation!

Do not be afraid!

Keep on speaking!

Do not be silent!

 

You have an enemy of the soul that is trying to shut you up. He doesn’t like your voice. He doesn’t like your encouragement, your inspiration, your words of kindness, your love. He hates it when people are better for having been with you. So he will target you with such circumstance and threat that you will be tempted to abandon your voice in order to tremble with fear. Thank God you have God!

Away with such intimidation!

Do not be afraid!

Keep on speaking!

Do not be silent!

 

Paul had a vision in the night. Dreams happen when you are asleep, visions when you are fully awake.

You have an enemy of the soul that will keep you awake at night. When everyone else is sound asleep you are pacing the floor not knowing what to do and where to go. You call out to God for help, you pray, you weep, you plan, you write, you read, you search for guidance, but it can be dark and it can be lonely. Thank God you have God!

Away with such intimidation!

Do not be afraid!

Keep on speaking!

Do not be silent!

Thank God you have God and He has you!

Listen to Him!
