Hearing the voice of Truth

Hebrews 2:1
¹Therefore we ought to give the more earnest heed to the things which we have heard, lest at any time we should let them slip.

We should hold more importance to the truth, which is the word of God. The word of God is the ultimate truth. It is authentic, proven sure, tried and reliable (Revelation 22:6). The word of God should be the weight of everything in your life. It is truth and life. It is in this truth that you receive salvation and once you veer off, it means you are living a lie because this truth sustains you, makes you, perfects you, and what you become is because of Him.

A lie is anything that deviates from the truth of God’s word. Lies carry negative energies such as condemnation, judgment, fear, guilt, and anxiety among others. On the other hand, truth empowers and uplifts us, guiding us toward light, into righteousness and greater victories. Embracing the truth allows us to live authentically and with wisdom for His word is a lamp unto our feet.

Numbers 13:31-33
³¹But the men who had gone with him said, “We can’t attack those people! They’re too strong for us!” ³²So they began to spread lies among the Israelites about the land they had explored. They said, “The land we explored is one that devours those who live there. All the people we saw there are very tall. ³³We saw Nephilim there. (The descendants of Anak are Nephilim.) We felt as small as grasshoppers, and that’s how we must have looked to them.”

When ten of the twelve spies were sent by Moses to explore Canaan lied, we know that judgment came upon them that believed the lie of the report. We know this bad report prompted God to disinherit and smite them with pestilence until Moses interceded. However, those who clung to the truth like Joshua and Caleb continued to live, their life was sustained and blessed while the ten spies that made a false report were smitten and that generation lost their pass to the promised land (Numbers 14:12, 36).

Mark 4:24
²⁴Then He said to them, “Take heed what you hear. With the same measure you use, it will be measured to you; and to you who hear, more will be given.

We ought to have an open heart to receive truth and to live it, to manifest it. What you hear ideally has a great impact on you because what you hear is what you receive. As children, we learn by hearing, every lad learns through what they hear, and they take it in and utter it as well, no wonder it is written, “Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God”.

So what are you hearing? Is it deception? Is it truth or lies? When the blind man heard the crowds passing, it was evident that he had heard something about Jesus, which was part of what built his faith to keep pursuing Jesus even though others tried to persuade him to keep shut! What you hear can either lift your faith or crush it, so be mindful of what you hear.

³⁵As Jesus approached Jericho, a blind man was sitting by the roadside begging. ³⁶When he heard the crowd going by, he asked what was happening. ³⁷They told him, “Jesus of Nazareth is passing by.” 38He called out, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!”

When King Herod heard about the birth of Jesus, it troubled and disturbed Him but perhaps if he had heard that Jesus would bring all to faith and a sure guarantee of an inheritance in God, it would have been different (Mathew 2:1…, Ephesians 2:14-22).

Proverbs 8:34-36 (Wisdom speaks)
³⁴Blessed is the man who listens to me, Watching daily at my gates, Waiting at the posts of my doors. ³⁵For whoever finds me finds life, And obtains favor from the Lord; ³⁶But he who sins against me wrongs his own soul; All those who hate me love death.”

To hate the wisdom in the truth you hear is depravity lack of understanding likened to the psalmist saying its a flirting with Death.”

Prophetic Utterance:

In the grace of life, I am blessed and favored. I cling to truth, the wisdom of God is my food.
Faith being my guide, I continue to live and manifest His word.
My heart is open to receive the truth for in truth’s embrace I find sustenance.
With His truth in my heart, my spirit is uplifted.

Guiding Text:
