In this world, we are bombarded by voices and messages from the media and other individuals. It can be pretty overwhelming. And, there is a voice that seeks to subtly affect us every day of our lives. It’s the devil!
Satan is the “accuser of the brethren” (Revelation 12:10) and seeks to bring ruin and darkness to our lives. He wants to deceive us into thinking things that are out of line with the Word of God, especially about God’s love and how He sees us and other people. He wants us to feel condemned with shame and condemn others as well.
Romans 8:1 TPT says: “So now the case is closed. There remains no accusing voice of condemnation against those who are joined in life-union with Jesus, the Anointed One.”
God is saying we are free from accusation and condemnation. But we must pay attention to what we are paying attention to! Are you spending time in the secret place getting close to God and hearing His heartbeat? Are you reading the Word more than you are listening to and researching the news? In this challenging time in the world, let us remain grounded in what is pure and true. May we listen to the voice of God and receive His love for us and others. Scripture states others will know God by our love (John 13:35). What a high call to walk in love!
May you listen for His still small voice and discern His loving, patient, kind voice over the accusing, negative, unloving voice of the Enemy today.
