There are absolutely different voices whispering into our ears. I totally understand the sort of comic visions we've seen with a little miniature devil 😈 on one shoulder and a little angel 😇 on our other shoulder. Both whispering something different into our ears.
The little devil keeps bringing us down. Saying nothing is possibly going to be good in our lives. That God doesn't care. That there is no hope. That we have blown it so bad as a human that we cannot be used or expect anything good to come our way. That there is no real love to be found or had.
Then there is the angel speaking... there is the voice of gladness. The voice of immediate hope. The voice of joy. The voice of vision. The voice of forgiveness. The voice of thankfulness! The voice of a personal and everlasting plan. And a voice of so much love to be had towards and for us.
Why in the world would we choose to listen to the voice of sorrow and sadness and no hope and condemnation when we can listen to the voice of GOD?!
Have a beautiful Friday my friends, while today and throughout the weekend, you listen to The Voice of Gladness.
