HEAVENLY THOUGHTS

When God speaks...Big ear, little ear Psalm 100:3


Know that the Lord, He is God! It is He who made us, and we are His; we are His people, and the sheep of His pasture.  Psalm 100:3

When God speaks : Do you have a big ear for Satan and a little ear for God? or a big ear for God and and no ear for the enemy?

God's word tells us that He comes to us in a small still voice.
Often we hear Him best when we are relaxed and in a calm and quiet state.
Maybe after a bath or shower or when we lie in bed at night, we know He comes to us revealing His awesome presence with a sense of peace or a great revelation of something that we couldn't see before.

But surely God is always talking to us. He tells us the Holy Spirit is with us always as our comforter, to help us in our daily walk with the Lord.

Did you ever wonder why it is that sometimes we see people who continually seem to  struggle? They often do the wrong things like making hurtful comments, ignoring and disregarding others or thinking thoughts that aren't even true.These people can't be listening to God or acting on His commands.

These people have fallen victim to one of Satan's biggest schemes...whispering lies into the ears of God's children.

God showed me an image of  a big ear for Satan and a little ear for God and how this creates much division, chaos and turmoil in the life of God's children and those that love them. 

The enemy is so sly that sometimes these people are totally unaware of the fact that their thoughts and actions are hurtful, or that their words are like a knife cutting into our hearts leaving us bleeding and confused.  One minute they are sweet and loving and the other they are lashing out in anger or frustration with us and we have no clue why. 

Could it be perhaps that in the business of the day, so many people just don't hear that small still voice of God alerting them of what they should or shouldn't do or say?
God warns us in Scripture that Satan is the master of lies, and deception coming to destroy and kill God's children. 

John 10:10 The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.

Could it be that as Satan seeks to divide and destroy God's people and the kingdom of God, that he whispers loudly in the ears of God's people as he sits on their shoulder laughing at the fact that they hear him and his evil tactics instead of hearing that voice of the Holy Spirit that seeks to assist us in our day?

What do we do?

Satan is a thief, a liar and a cheat!
He doesn't want us in relationship with God or with anyone else.  This enemy of our God seeks to kill our joy, happiness, emotions, trust in each other and he seeks to take down God's Kingdom.

God tells us that we are innocent children of His and He tells us how to overcome Satan's divisive schemes and come out victorious.

“Behold, I am sending you out as sheep in the midst of wolves, so be wise as serpents and innocent as doves. Matthew 10:16

You may wonder...How do we become wise as serpents,
but remain innocent as doves?

It's really quite simple when we understand what is happening.  
When we are  made aware of the plan of the enemy and we can see his plan of attack, then we can stand strong in defense, take him down and defeat the enemy, putting him under our feet. 
 
God's word explains that
we must learn to operate in obedience to our Lord with His power through us and this happens when we trust in Him. 

There is safety when we are abiding in the Presence of God as is stated in Psalm 91...

1 He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High
Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
2 I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress;
My God, in Him I will trust.”
3 Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler
And from the perilous pestilence.
4 He shall cover you with His feathers,
And under His wings you shall take refuge;
His truth shall be your shield and buckler.
5 You shall not be afraid of the terror by night,
Nor of the arrow that flies by day,
Nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness,
Nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.
7 A thousand may fall at your side,
And ten thousand at your right hand;
But it shall not come near you.
8 Only with your eyes shall you look,
And see the reward of the wicked.
9 Because you have made the Lord, who is my refuge,
Even the Most High, your dwelling place,
10 No evil shall befall you,
Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling;
11 For He shall give His angels charge over you,
To keep you in all your ways.
12 In their hands they shall bear you up,
Lest you dash your foot against a stone.
13 You shall tread upon the lion and the cobra,
The young lion and the serpent you shall trample underfoot.
14 “Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him;
I will set him on high, because he has known My name.
15 He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him;
will be with him in trouble;
I will deliver him and honor him.
16 With long life I will satisfy him,
And show him My salvation.”

You see, God doesn't want us to fall victim to the ways of the enemy.  He desires for us to turn to Him, hearing His guidance of the Holy Spirit as we go though out our day.  

Satan knows he is a defeated foe, already conquered by the 
death of Jesus and His resurrection. 
Satan knows his time is short here in this world and he is the hater of all things good. And this is why he takes the time to torment and confuse God's children, using whatever hurtful ways he can to destroy us. 

And of course, he seeks to use those closest to us as his tools of destruction. Satan and his demons feed off of our negative emotions. As the enemy of God and us, he all too often  laughs and laughs as he sits proudly in the face of God and good...knowing that he accomplishes unrest and a lack of peace among God's children. 

The answer...is to turn the tables on the enemy.

Now that you know the battle plan of the enemy, 
stand prepared to stake your ground.

Cut off the big ear that Satan has been whispering in all this time and grow a big ear for God and the soft still voice that He uses to guide us in our day.

Its easy to test the spirits...just ask yourself if what you are going to do or say is going to be helpful or hurtful. 
Is it going to build up or put down?
Is it going to make someone happy or sad, bringing joy or tears?
Is it going to pull someone closer to you or push them away?
Is it truth or a lie?  Manipulative or selfish...or kind and giving? Loving or hateful?

These are ways to determine who we are listening to though out our day.
And we all have a choice of how we operate.
Think about it....
 Do you have a big ear for Satan and a little ear for God? or a big ear for God and and no ear for the enemy? 

It is my prayer for today that we focus on listening to our Father in Heaven. Just as Psalm 91 shows us, in Him we abide, have safety and authority over the enemy and a promise of a long life. 

Know that the Lord, He is God! It is He who made us, and we are His; we are His people, and the sheep of His pasture.  Psalm 100:3

Praise God from whom All Blessings come!  
Love and Blessings to all in Jesus precious name. Amen
