As you read this, you are choosing to hear my voice. The extent to which you do this is often your choice. So it is with the information we receive from all of reality surrounding us. EVERYONE hears voices. We hear voices of family and friends; we hear the voices of those in our communities; we even choose to hear the voices of reporters and commentators and any others we can access in our Information Age. Yet, is there a voice out there more important? Is there a VOICE we may need to focus on hearing?
In my experience of tragedy, stemming from the 04-16-07 VT Tragedy, I once again (for the third time) have found myself involuntarily committed to a mental hospital (this was true when I wrote this article, though I have since been released with no problems found). It appears that in the least, some out there are uncomfortable with my voice and my thinking — it scares them. At no time in my life have I taken physical action toward hurting another (aside from possibly with my siblings as a child 😀). In fact, I have not even threatened to ever physically hurt another person.
Friend, we are at a dangerous place in our thinking and attention to voices today. We have come to be emotionally frightened by voices that are different from our own. We often even collectively find people out there to listen to and join with against all competing voices. Yet, are we fully considering the most important voice?
As noted in my last couple of Blogs, the problem I see in America, and the world, and all throughout my own life experience, is that we either hear the collective voices of mankind around us or the voice of GOD. In fact, we should hear both, but prioritize the voice of GOD.
So, how do you hear GOD’s Voice and know that it is that of the Almighty–The Supreme Being of the Universe? You look at His revelations–there are three: 1) Creation; 2) The Covenants (The Bible); and CHRIST. Only as you prioritize His Voice, can you put away any competing voice.
Consider Psalm 19:1-3:
“The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows His handiwork. Day unto day utters speech; and night unto night reveals knowledge. There is no speech nor language where their voice is not heard.”
