My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. John 10:27
Life is all about the voices you hear! Each of us are the byproduct of the voices we have heard throughout our lives. In fact, our destiny is determined by the voice or voices we choose to listen to. Will you choose to allow your mind to listen to the voices of people from years ago or even recently that told you that you would never amount to anything or that you are not as smart as you sister? Or will you choose to listen to the voice of God that says you can do all things through Christ who strengthens you (Philippians 4:13), that you are fearfully and wonderfully made (Psalm 139:14), and that you have the mind of Christ (1 Corinthians 2:16). Sometimes the voices are not actual voices, but perhaps actions, such as rejection, you may have experienced in your youth. When you are rejected as an adult for example, the negative voice will say that no one will ever love you and that you will always be alone. However, God says that when you come to Him He will in no wise cast you out (John 6:37), that He has plans to give you hope and a future (Jeremiah 29:11), and that as you delight yourself in Him, He will give you the desires of your heart (Psalm 37:4)! Choose to believe what God says about you and not the negative things people may have said or done. His opinion is the only one that really matters anyway!
