Bible Verse for Today
“Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock.” (Matthew 7:24)
They indeed say whom we listen to will determine how far our lives will go. The songs, the messages, things we read, and the voices of people we get ourselves acquainted with will always leave an impact on our lives. The impact depends on the type of things they are telling us or the kind of things we are reading. We love music a lot and we always want to listen to a very good one but are we conscious of the message is passing to us?
Jesus was talking to his disciples and telling us that what we should listen to is His words. It is important to our lives. Anyone who listens to His words, not just listening but also working according to it is a wise person.
God can talk to us in different ways these days. Job listed methods by which God talks to his people in Job 33:14-15, “For God does speak—now one way, now another— though no one perceives it. In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falls on people as they slumber in their beds.”
Do you know even now, God can talk to you through songs? This is why we must be conscious of what we are listening to. Songs with ungodly lyrical contents will affect our minds negatively but songs with godly lyrics will help us grow. God is speaking to us in different ways but are we listening to Him at all? We need to sit ourselves down and ask, who are we listening to on our lives, what kind of advice are we taking in.
God speaks to His people, so let us focus on the words of God alone and act accordingly.
