At one time our house was filled with the voices of our children and their friends, who would come over after school or the weekend to hang out. They would always find their way to the pantry where they knew a grand feast of snacks was waiting for them.
“Mrs. Belme do you always connect everything back to the Bible?”
Many hours were spent around the kitchen island talking about their lives, asking questions, and hearing about Jesus. One friend asked, “Mrs. Belme do you always connect everything back to the Bible?”
Yes, I always connect everything back to the Bible. A Biblical/spiritual perspective is where I choose to live. Truly, I can’t help myself. When others share their stories Holy Spirit is constantly downloading a verse(s) or Scripture to share. And I am continually learning how to listen for His voice.
There is another voice. The voice that attempts to cause us to doubt the Voice of God and the truth of His words.
“Did God really say…?”
Genesis 3:1b tells us one of Satan’s favorite questions, “Did God really say…?” Many times we focus so much on our victory of spotting his attempt to cause Eve to question what God really said that we miss Eve’s response.
“but God did say…” Genesis 3:3a
Eve knew God’s voice because she walked with Him and spent time in His presence daily. God invites us to do the same. He waits patiently and lovingly for us in His word where He desires to teach us how to listen to His voice and discern His truth over all the other voices we hear throughout each day.
My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. John 10:27.
God gives us the legacy of knowing His voice. My prayer is that you will choose to open His pantry door daily and find the grandest feast of snacks, morsels, and meat and potatoes that will bring sustenance to your life and grow your ability to hear His Voice.
