Voices are for Choices

Somewhere along the line in my Christian life I learned I was not supposed to hear the enemy’s voice and if I did I was in sin, fear, doubt, unbelief or somehow doing something wrong. But the Lord just revealed me that we will always hear the voice of the enemy for he is the prince of the power of the air.

Even if we shut off everything and lived under a rock we would still hear his voice for he rules from the air. Therefore, the issue is not whether we hear his voice, but whether or not we obey his voice. Our obedience determines what voice we follow and whether we have faith, trust, belief, etc.

David said it this way in Psalm 3:1-2 “O LORD, how my adversaries have increased! Many are rising up against me. Many are saying of my soul, “There is no deliverance for him in God.” Selah.” He heard the voice of his adversaries but he didn’t submit to them, rather he said, “But You, O LORD, are a shield about me, My glory, and the One who lifts my head. I was crying to the LORD with my voice, And He answered me from His holy mountain. Selah.” (Psalm 3:3-4) It’s not the absence of the voice of the enemy we seek but the obedience to the voice of God. This was liberating for me and I hope it is for you too.

John 10:1-6 “Truly, truly, I say to you, he who does not enter by the door into the fold of the sheep, but climbs up some other way, he is a thief and a robber. But he who enters by the door is a shepherd of the sheep. To him the doorkeeper opens, and the sheep hear his voice, and he calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. When he puts forth all his own, he goes ahead of them, and the sheep follow him because they know his voice. A stranger they simply will not follow, but will flee from him, because they do not know the voice of strangers.” This figure of speech Jesus spoke to them, but they did not understand what those things were which He had been saying to them.”
