My Little Voice


18 ‘Pray for us, for our conscience is clear and we want to live honorably in everything we do.’ Hebrews 13:18 (NLT)

 

As a Christian I believe the Holy Spirit lives within me and because He does live in me, I think of Him as that ‘little voice’ warning me not to sin.  The thing that is interesting is my obedience.  So this is how I come to realise that obedience to God’s voice is very important. 

The little voice is like an alarm, when a burglar comes into your house and the alarm goes off, you have a chance to catch him and have him arrested.  Now that is when you take note of the alarm and carry it through.  You can also ignore the alarm and switch it off and pretend you didn’t hear it and the burglar can rob you blind.

My little voice speaks to me mostly when I feel irritated with people around me, I will feel uncomfortable and not happy with my reaction towards them.  I will also feel regret and before I realise it I will repent there and then.  I normally pray and ask “Please Lord, forgive me I have sinned.”

I am of course working on my attitude towards people in the sense that I don’t want to be offended constantly by them, that I should try and accept them for who they are.

Thought for today:

You have to become obedient and listen to ‘your little voice’ and it will save you from going under.

Prayer

Father God please help me to always strive to have a conscience without offense towards God and me.  I pray this in the Holy Name of Jesus Christ.  Amen

Acts 2:38-40 (ICB) 38 Peter said to them, “Change your hearts and lives and be baptized, each one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. 39 This promise is for you. It is also for your children and for all who are far away. It is for everyone the Lord our God calls to himself.” 40 Peter warned them with many other words. He begged them, “Save yourselves from the evil of today’s people!”
I say we are too caught up in our own little worlds, we believe that we are capable of so much and that when times are difficult then we call on the Lord Jesus.  When nothing happens and we do not receive answered prayers we lose hope and start looking for new ways to get out of the mess we find ourselves in.
In the International Children’s Bible we read that “change your hearts and lives and be baptized,”  the words that stood out for me is “change your hearts and lives.”  I have been thinking about these words.  Something m…
