Your 3 Negative Voices vs The Voice of God
By Dr. Taylor Marshall
Every day you are confronted with three negative voices:
microphone squareThe voice of the demons. These are preternatural voices that pop into you head saying such things as: “God doesn’t love you. You’re a terrible follower of Christ. Who could ever love you?”)
The voice of the naysayers. These are people in your family, at work, at church, at school, at the bus stop that complain, rag on other people, and rag on you. They complain all the time about how they are poor, unhappy, sick, sore, demoted, unsuccessful, unfavored, and “catching bad breaks.” They see the world through the grey tint of unhappiness.
Your own negative voice to yourself. These are the words that you say to yourself in moments of quiet: “I’m so stupid. How could I have fallen for that? I don’t deserve ______. Who am I kidding? I’m a failure. Who could love me? Why do I even exist?!”
But there is The Voice above all these voices that says: “You are precious. I love you. I want to reward you. I want to give you things that you never could have imagine. I have a plan for you. I want to know you. I want to make you pure. You are my child. Draw close to me.”
You can only hear This Voice above the others if you read the Sacred Scriptures every day and pray daily. Otherwise, the other voices will get louder and you’ll forget to listen to the most important Voice.
