Sink or Swim……. Are you listening to the truthful voice?

      Sink or Swim……. Are you listening to the           

                                 truthful voice?

 

Good day all! I hope this day is going well for everyone. Have been a little busy trying to get more promotion on the book out so none to say God is fulfilling my time with the work He has for me. I have to admit however I have ran into a few times here recently that I have been told that the promises I have been given by God was not true….none to say, we all know who that is. Hence this is where the blog for today comes from. As you prepare to read this, I want you to stop and think about something…when you have been told things by God through the Holy Spirit how many times has Satan attacked you because of it? Are listening and trusting the voice of truth…God OR are you listening to Satan and not only all the lies he is giving you but also the reminders of the past? Are you being like Peter who Christ told to walk on the water…having the faith that what God has told you is going to happen or are you sinking and not trusting? Think about this as you continue to read and then decide, are you going to sink or swim?

 Many times in life we wonder in what direction God wants us going. A lot of times however many of us get the instructions from God early….just as I received when I was fifteen. I knew and I do know that God is truly the voice of truth however, I am like many who have to daily fight Satan off because of how he is. He enjoys reminding us of our past and of our failures. He also likes to try to get us to turn away from God by telling us what God has promised us will not happen; it is not true all the while laughing at us. When put in this predicament, we are like Peter who was in the boat when Christ was out walking on the water. If you remember He instructed Peter to come to Him and without hesitation, Peter was walking to Jesus on the water. The problem occurred however when Peter realized it and lost the faith in which he would then begin to sink and drown. The same goes with us in that we hold our faith and belief strong until Satan begins attacking us and we realize we are "walking” on water. The fact is though that if when we are instructed by God we just continue to listen and do as He has commanded, that we will be able to walk on the water with God fully. In the book of Jeremiah, we are instructed what happens when we do listen to God, especially in the seventh chapter. We are clearly told that:

               23- but I gave them this command: Obey

                 me, and I will be your God and you will

                 be my people. Walk in all the ways I

                 command you, that it may go well with

                 you.

So as you can see, God has fully instructed that if we

obeyed him and did as He instructed that we will have a much better chance of swimming. The chances of sinking when we obey what God tells us is slim to none. On the other hand however, if we continue to listen to the voice that tells us what a failure we are and continually reminds us of our past, we will end up sinking deep in which we would never recover. So let me ask you ….are you listening to the voice of truth in which will help you to walk on the water not allowing you to sink OR are you listening to the voice that reminds us of our failures and our past causing us to sink daily ? Myself, I would much rather listen to the voice of truth so I can continue to walk with Him on the water and when the voice reminds me of my past and my failures.…well, I just remind him of his future. 

Remember that if you are interested in having a copy of the book or you would like for me to speak at your church, school, group, or organization all information can be found on the front of this website.

God Bless and Keep you-

In Christ-
