Have you noticed that you can hardly go anywhere without some sort of “noise” bombarding you – in stores, diners, laundromats, and even complaining people? So, what do we do with all that noise and does it really matter?
Yes, it does matters! More than you think. What you hear definitely impacts you, even if it’s just plain annoying. So, why is this so important?
First of all, the most important reason is Rom. 10:17:
Romans 10:17 (KJV) 17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
You see, not only does faith in God come by hearing God’s Word, but faith in the devil and his evil doings comes by hearing the words of the devil. And the more you hear – either good or evil – the more it gets into you and what gets into you, you believe! That’s why it’s so important what you let yourself hear.
If you’re fretful and anxious because of the world situation and economy, it could be because you’re watching and listening to the fake news and other worldly media. You’re tuned to the wrong channel! In order to have peace and joy in your life, you have to tune into God’s Word.
Romans 15:13 (KJV) 13 Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.
Joy and peace come through believing God’s Word and in order to do that, you must get into it and read, study, and meditate on it until it becomes a part of you. And, unfortunately, that doesn’t happen overnight! It takes time to study God’s Word and make it a part of your life, but it’s worth every minute!
Another channel you might be listening to that is detrimental to your well-being is complaining and negative people. They certainly don’t lift you up but rather bring you down. Some of them you’ll just have to distance yourself from in order to walk in the victory that God has for you.
And then there’s YOU! What me? Yes you! What you’re saying with your mouth can be your biggest asset or your biggest liability! If you’ve been reading my blogs for any length of time, you know how important the words you speak are because what you say is what gets into your heart and according to Mark 11:23, you going to have what you say – whether good or evil.
Mark 11:23 (KJV) 23 For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.
Galatians 6:7 (KJV) 7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.
Fortunately, many of the negative things we say we really don’t believe, but the fact is, the more you say it, the more you will believe it. Purpose in your heart to say only those things that you want to come to pass, especially God’s Word.
And so, my dear friends, guard your heart from all the negative things around you by limiting the time you spend listening to the “news-that’s-not-fit-to-hear” and continue to stand on God’s Word so that you can live a life worth living.
Proverbs 4:23 (AMP) 23 Keep and guard your heart with all vigilance and above all that you guard, for out of it flow the springs of life.
1 Corinthians 14:10 (KJV) 10 There are, it may be, so many kinds of voices in the world, and none of them is without signification.
Mark 4:24 (KJV) 24 And he said unto them, Take heed what ye hear: with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you: and unto you that hear shall more be given.
