Voice Of Truth
Are you someone that believes everything and anything you hear or read? From the Internet, Facebook, Instagram, Wikipedia – that is always accurate and the truth…isn’t it? How about the news?
It is actually quite difficult to know what to believe from what you hear and read these days. It raises the question of which voices are we listening to. Are you listening to the ‘Voice of Truth’?
We are living in the last days, there is no question or debate about that. The world is in turmoil and chaos. More and more as we get closer to the end of the age, the return of Jesus, hearing the ‘voice of truth’ will become an important ingredient in our daily lives. Putting it bluntly, knowing and hearing God’s voice will save your life. To recognise who is speaking into our lives, what is being said, and not being deceived will go a long way to keeping us under the shadow of the Almighty.
Matt 24 speaks about not being deceived. Deception comes from hearing something that is false and accepting it as truth. The enemy wants you to believe that you are no good. That you won’t amount to anything and that the promises God has given to you will not come to pass. They are lies, false and not to be accepted as truth!
The only way not to be deceived is to know the truth. My Bible tells me in John 14:6 that Jesus is the way, the truth and the life and it is the truth that will set us free.
John 8:31-32 says; Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, “If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”
Do you want to be free today? Then know the truth. Listen to the ‘voice of truth’. I believe we have to know Jesus and have the Holy Spirit living within us to know and be able to recognise His voice. Anything that opposes the Word of God is not truth. Like a sheep who hears and knows the voice of the Shepherd. Jesus is our Good Shepherd who leads and guides us, loves and protects, and sometimes He even corrects and disciplines us.
Know and recognise Jesus’ voice, the voice of truth.
