Did you hear that? Do you need to go back and watch it again? Go ahead, I’ll wait.
There is a sea of voices competing with each other to drown out the voice of God in your life. They are trying to derail you. To distract you from hearing the Shepherd’s voice. They are all trying to win at telling you who you are and making you believe it. Here and now when you are in the midst of pain, they think they have a hold on you. They think you aren’t strong enough to stand up for yourself. There is only one way to defeat them, to prove them wrong. The Shepherd’s voice can and will drown out all the others. You can stand on who He says you are and defeat all the competing voices, but you must first know the Shepherd’s voice.
I encourage you to dive into God’s Word and spend some time learning who He says you are. It’s important that you do. It’s important so that you know the Shepherd’s voice. So you can recognize it and pick it out over the din of competing voices. Listen so that He can tell you who you are. So that you have a firm foundation to fight from when the world is coming at you. It doesn’t matter who the world says you are when you can come back to the knowledge that YOU ARE HIS! Who He says you are is the only truth you need.
Only God can heal a broken heart, but there are things we can do to help foster self healing. This post is part of my series 31 Days of Self Healing. You can find the rest of the posts for this series here.
