Apostle Grace Lubega
Proverbs 1:33(KJV); But whoso hearkeneth unto me shall dwell safely, and shall be quiet from fear of evil.
When you learn to truly listen to God, you become quiet from the fear of evil.
Every time someone narrates their problems, worries or fears, it is because that person does not really hear God.
Job had this problem.
He says in Job 3:25-26; “For the thing which I greatly fear comes upon me, and that of which I am afraid befalls me. I was not or am not at ease, nor had I or have I rest, nor was I or am I quiet, yet trouble came and still comes [upon me].”
He was never at ease or at rest; he constantly thought and spoke about his fears.
This is why, in his final confrontation with God, the Lord asks him, “Who is this who darkens counsel by words without knowledge?”(Job 38:2).
The Lord also told him to listen to Him (Job 42:4).
Job was listening to everything else except God.
The voice of God quietens our spirits from any form of anxiety.
If you ever find yourself beset by circumstances, purpose to listen to the voice of God. It is the calm in the midst of the storm.
FURTHER STUDY: Hebrews 3:15, Job 42:4
If you ever find yourself beset by circumstances, purpose to listen to the voice of God. It is the calm in the midst of the storm. When you learn to truly listen to God, you become quiet from the fear of evil.
PRAYER: My father, I thank you for who you are to me. Your voice is precious and priceless. This day I heed to it because it is what sweeps fears away. I refuse to be anxious, I hear the God of heaven and earth who speaks blessed assurance to my heart all the days of my life.
In Jesus’ name. Amen.
