“So, as the Holy Spirit says:

Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts” – Hebrews 3:7-8

Many voices are competing for my attention. All the wrong voices. I’ve been kind of discouraged lately. Scared, doubtful, and having difficulty trusting God. I see Him working in my life, I feel Him with me, and the inner voice in me tells me to trust. Yet, other voices remind me of my past, make me worry about things I can’t change, without wanting to listen to the truth of God’s voice.

I deal with rejection a lot in my personal life and in the past year it spilled into my professional life too. Two almost three years ago, I identified the root of my issues as rejection and I’ve been trying to hand over those wounds to the Lord daily. The problem though is when those wounds harden my heart to the voice of truth.

God told me this morning to trust Him, not lean on my own understanding, and don’t worry about tomorrow. Basically, reminded me of what I already know deep down. In those moments, I knew it was the Spirit.

When the Holy Spirit speaks, we must listen, trust, and believe.

Today, I’m choosing to follow and listen to the Spirit.

Today, what voice are you listening to?
