A Good Deafness

What or who are you listening to? It seems like we have been overwhelmed by the power of the woke movement in our country and the voice of those who are woke has become very loud. That voice is so loud that it controls the speaking of pure truth for many, but it should never compromise our conviction about God's pure truth, the Bible. Our hearing, much like our opinions, has become influenced far too much by a world that only leads us down the wrong path. Look at how John wrote to this subject in John 2:15 Do not love this world nor the things it offers you, for when you love the world, you do not have the love of the Father in you. 16 For the world offers only a craving for physical pleasure, a craving for everything we see, and pride in our achievements and possessions. These are not from the Father but are from this world. 17 And this world is fading away, along with everything that people crave. But anyone who does what pleases God will live forever.

God speaks to what we should do with two very powerful words, DO NOT. If we follow the ways and positions of this world, we are listening to the wrong source and soon will begin to live our lives accordingly. Once again...DO NOT! Our source of entertainment, TV or computers, has now been made available on our phones and is easily accessible just to make sure we stay connected with the wrong source.

So what is the solution? We must become deaf to the world and enhance our listening to the Holy Spirit in our life and before long the world's noise will be heard less and God's Word will replace it with the pure truth we need to grow in our faith. I love getting. information and that is good, but it can be also bad if that information is flawed. The world's information IS flawed at every turn, so we need to acquire a good deafness to the world and a hyper-listening sensitivity to the Word. Some of Beethoven's best musical pieces were written after his hearing had left him and he learned to rely on the music he heard inside. He put those notes on paper so those who listened could hear it and enjoy it. What was thought to be a handicap for Beethoven was actually a good thing because we get to experience the music from his soul.

In our world, you may at times believe that a lack of "cool" information that is trending in our world will put us behind. In reality, the voice on the inside is the voice we must be listening to. The Holy Spirit, along with God's Word will cause that voice to give us the best information for living our lives, so study the Bible, and it will speak to you and set you on the right path. Become deaf to the world's wisdom and trends and you will not be "woke" but just "woke up." Break the connection with the world and thus show the wisdom Jesus gave in His prayer to His Father where He said "We are IN the world, but not OF the world." The truth is found in John 17:15 I’m not asking you to take them out of the world, but to keep them safe from the evil one. 16 They do not belong to this world any more than I do. 17 Make them holy by your truth; teach them your word, which is truth. 18 Just as you sent me into the world, I am sending them into the world. 19 And I give myself as a holy sacrifice for them so they can be made holy by your truth.

Jesus gave His life so we could be a shining light in the world, but we cannot be that light if we are trying to use the light the world offers us. We need A Good Deafness, so quit listening to the world and open the eyes of your heart to the Lord and His voice will never lead you wrong.

Vesselogical Out,
