They will never follow a stranger, but will run away from him, because they do not recognize the stranger’s voice.” – John 10:5
I strongly believe that we all hear voices! WAIT! LISTEN!
I believe that the spiritual realm is even more real than the physical world, which will eventually pass away. Our bodies will decay one day, but our spirits will live forever – somewhere. We can’t normally see angels or demons but that doesn’t make them unreal.
Many people can say that they feel temptation from the enemy. But, what we don’t realize is that Satan’s spiritual forces speak to us all the time.
One day I was having a conversation about the God Speaks Bible with a ministry leader. A woman walked by and I had an inappropriate thought go through my mind. I instantly began to repent in my mind and the Holy Spirit spoke so clearly to me. He said that was not my thought. I questioned how I could have a thought that was not my thought and the Holy Spirit told me that the enemy suggested it to me.
Anyone can give anyone a thought. I will make you have a vision right now. Are you ready? Ok, don’t think about what I am about to write. Yellow rose. Did you picture a yellow rose? Caught you! You could not resist picturing what I wrote, could you? It has been my experience that if I speak it, I rarely have someone not see what I say to them.
In the same way our enemy suggest things to us. Are you going to listen to Him, or to the Lord’s voice?
