I am sharing with you in this season about hearing the voice of God. One of the main things that helps us hear the voice of God is to eliminate other voices. Eliminating other voices is a master key to hearing the voice of God. That is why 1 Corinthians 14:10 says, “there are, it may be, so many kinds of voices in the world, and none of them is without signification” (1 Corinthians 14:10). Sometimes to hear the voice of God, you have to tune down or take away some other voices. That is true of every voice. If we are in a room together and everyone starts talking, you may not hear me. One of the keys is to know and recognize the voices that exist and silence them. You will realize that as you quieten them down, you will start to hear the voice you need to hear.
Many kinds of voices confront us daily. Some of these voices include the voice of God, the voice of the mind, which is constantly influencing you, and the voice of the flesh which is also constantly speaking. To do well, you need to quieten certain dangerous voices. “Thus saith the Lord, thy Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel; I am the Lord thy God which teacheth thee to profit, which leadeth thee by the way that thou shouldest go. O that thou hadst hearkened to my commandments! then had thy peace been as a river, and thy righteousness as the waves of the sea. And they thirsted not when he led them through the deserts: he caused the waters to flow out of the rock for them: he clave the rock also, and the waters gushed out” (Isaiah 48:17-18). God is the one who actually teaches you to do well. It is not the devil, circumstances, the billionaires or philosophers of this world that teach you this. God is the one who leads you where you should go in this life. How will you be led and how will you prosper if you cannot hear the voice of God? Every other voice will lead you astray. That is why you must trust Him to lead you. When you follow the voice of God, He will cause miracles to happen in your life and make the impossible possible in your life. These are the great advantages of drowning out other voices. From today, choose to listen to God’s voice. Allow him to lead you and you will receive unending peace and righteousness. God is working wonders in your life today because you have yielded to His voice and not any other.
