Honor God's Voice Above All Others Voices.

[Most] blessed is the man who believes in, trusts in, and relies on the Lord, and whose hope and confidence the Lord is. Jeremiah 17:7 (AMPC)


One attitude that welcomes the presence of God into our lives is the attitude that honors Him above everyone and everything else. Our attitudes need to say, " God, no matter what anyone else tells me, no matter what I think myself, no matter what my own plan is, if I clearly hear you say something and I know it's you, I will honor you, and honor what you say above everything else."


Sometimes we give more consideration to what people tell us than to what God says. If we pray diligently and hear from God, and then start asking people around us what they think, we honor their human opinions above God's. Such an attitude will prevent our being able to consistently hear God's voice.


If we are ever going to develop an ability to hear from God and be led by His Spirit as a way of life, we have to stop listening to so many opinions from so many people and begin trusting the wisdom God deposits in our hearts.


The Holy Spirit dwells inside of us because God wants us to be led by the Spirit in a personal way and to hear His voice for ourselves as He leads and guides us. In the verse for today, God says we will be blessed when we look to Him.


Good things happen if we listen to God. He wants to be our strength and we must honor His Word above all else.


PRAYER: Father, help me have the right attitude and one that honors You. Help me to not need the approval of people – only You. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.


God bless you as you share the devotion with your family and friends. Shalom.
