Last week, I started reading Mark Batterson’s new book, Whisper: How to Hear the Voice of God. It is fantastic so far, but I have not had time to read much. God is whispering to me to read it instead of writing a long blog post, so I will leave you with a quote from the beginning of the book.
“If your life is off-key, maybe it’s because you’ve been deafened by the negative self talk that doesn’t let God get a Word in edgewise! Maybe you’ve listened to the voice of criticism so long you can’t believe anything else about yourself. Or maybe it’s the Enemy’s voice of condemnation that speaks lies about who you really are. If you don’t silence those competing voices, they’ll eventually deafen you. You won’t be able to sing God’s song because you won’t be able to hear His voice.
Is God’s voice the loudest voice in your life? That’s the question. If the answer is no, that’s the problem.”
May we all tune our ears so that God’s whisper is the loudest voice in our lives!
