Ignore Religious Voices

Isaiah 36:13-15 Then the Rabshakeh stood and called out with a loud voice in Hebrew, and said, “Hear the words of the great king, the king of Assyria! Thus says the king: “Do not let Hezekiah deceive you, for he will not be able to deliver you; nor let Hezekiah make you trust in the LORD, saying, “The LORD will surely deliver us; this city will not be given into the hand of the king of Assyria.” ’

The enemy often comes with a voice that even sounds like what you have known of God in the past or what you have defined Him to be. He often comes in a voice that sounds like the language of God in your life. It sounds like something you believe God did or might do. He wants you to define who God is rather than allowing God to define who He is in your life. Very often the present reality of God in your life is an offense to the thing you thought God did, or didn’t do, yesterday. The enemy doesn’t speak the language of God, but he is going to pretend that he does. He will use words that you think are God’s words. The language that you think is the language of God in the mouth of an enemy is not the voice of God. Some the things what God says, you hear by the definitions of your own dictionary. So it is with the words that the enemy declares in the hearing of your own mind. 

Do we define God as the one who gives blessings? If we are in a season where blessings are not happening we often look for the voice that promises blessings rather than recognizing the voice of the one who loves us in the midst of our hardship. If we don’t allow God to define who He is in the midst of our circumstances we will fall for a voice of deception. We will believe in our hearts that any voice that speaks the language of God is a voice that promises blessings.
