Turn a Deaf Ear

Here’s an encouraging devotional by Max Lucado.

Two kinds of voices vie for our attention. One says, “God will help you.” The other says, “God has left you!”

And here’s the great news: you select the voices you hear. Why give ear to pea-brains and scoffers when you can, with the same ear, listen to the voice of God? I had a friend who battled alcohol. He tried a fresh tactic. He gave me and a few others permission to slug him in the nose if we ever saw him drinking. If the wall is too tall, try the tunnel! Try something different… God will help you!

Ephesians 1:19-20 says, “God’s power is very great for those who believe. That power is the same as the great strength God used to raise Christ from the dead and put Him at His right side in the heavenly world.”

Turn to God and he will give you what you need. Turn a deaf ear to the old voices. Open a wide eye to the new choices!
