Loud voices are very audible. Especially for some of you who’ve been to a concert, it doesn’t take much to realize we’re sensitive to loud noises and voices. But it takes a lot to hear, or even listen to a whisper.
There’s a difference between hearing and listening. Hearing is just recognizing the audible sound, whereas listening is to actually interpret and understand the words. We exist to listen to His words. We exist to listen to His whisper.
The devil always speaks loudly, in your guilty pleasures and joys, making reasons and understandings for these actions. The Lord doesn’t match this for a reason. He doesn’t overcome these loud voices. He doesn’t have to match the volume. His truth speaks louder than the devils words.
On this special day of Easter, He overcomes, and His resurrection gives us the opportunity to live and be saved from the mistakes and mishaps we’ve all experienced. Don’t listen to the loud voices that tempt us each and every day. Instead, keep your ear open to the whispers of His plans for you.
You are all special. Each and every one of you were meant for something great. Have a wonderful and blessed Easter!
