Day 316: Isaiah 30:21 (November 12)

Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it.  Isaiah 30:21

There are so many voices vying for our attention every day.  But as I read this verse recently, I was so deeply stirred.

I have seen several disturbing stories lately about people saying that women of my demographic are uninformed and must be taught how to vote and act in line with an extremely liberal viewpoint.  So much of it reminds me of what was described during the times of Hitler.

Now, more than ever, we must know the Voice and listen to it alone.

I cannot allow public opinion to sway my walk with Jesus.  I cannot allow the loudest voice to be the one I follow simply because it’s the loudest.  I am responsible for listening and truly hearing His voice.  So are you.  Likewise, I cannot allow my emotions to be the flagship for my decisions.  I must lay aside emotions and focus on what’s true.

The lines in life seem to be more clear than ever.  Both sides seem to be showing exactly where they stand.  This is, honestly, a blessing.  I remember being so frustrated and confused when nobody was telling the truth, so I didn’t know who to believe.  Now, it seems the Lord is lifting the veil of lies and has allowed people to become stirred to a point where they are showing their true colors.  This really is a blessing!

Many are pandering based on loose interpretations of the Bible, undoubtedly skewed to represent their viewpoint.  Beware of reading the Bible just to validate your feelings.  Instead, it should be read in partnership with Holy Spirit and if we do that, then we allow God to guide and convict and encourage us as He chooses.

Don’t ever forget, the enemy knows the Bible and uses it to deceive and lead astray, but only Holy Spirit can give us true understanding and wisdom.

We shouldn’t fear, even though the days look dark, because it just makes it easier to find the Light.  This is our time, and I am watching and waiting for a strong move of the Lord to wash over the earth.

Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!  Isaiah 5:20
