There is no other voice that matters, begin to condition your seeing and your hearing. Learn to drown out all voices, not MY Own. MY sheep must know MY voice and distinguish it from the chatter.
This is how you know MY voice. MY voice will encourage giving, helping and building. It will stretch you, but it does not tear down. I will produce a spirit of peace, kindness and love. Any voice that produces fear is not from ME.
I AM the only voice that matters. Listen to ME. I will give new perspectives and a new strategy. I will give you the unique ability to see the light, the opportunity and the hope in situations that others consider irreparable.
Choose one voice, MINE and discard the rest, because life depends on it. Your next decision and your next move will cost valuable resources, that are too precious to waste. Be precise, be purposeful and be specific.
So let us do our best to enter that rest. But if we disobey God, as the people of Israel did, we will fall. For the word of God is alive and powerful. It is sharper than the sharpest two-edged sword, cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow. It exposes our innermost thoughts and desires. Nothing in all creation is hidden from God. Everything is naked and exposed before his eyes, and he is the one to whom we are accountable.
