A tad bit schizophrenic

Do you hear the voices? They are everywhere. Some are blaringly loud. Others whisper softly in our minds. You'd think we're all a tad bit schizophrenic. But it's really just the culture we're swimming in. From advertisers to blogs to Facebook to our boss to family to twitter, the voices screaming for our attention are everywhere.

I don't know if you've thought about it but one of the voices that's in competition for our attention is our own. 

But as Liz and I were discussing this morning: The one voice that we don't need to listen to is our own. 

In Jeremiah 17:9 we read that the human heart is the most deceitful of all things.

Maybe you've heard the statement: Just follow your heart.

That's about the stupidest thing that you could do. Why? Because your heart is the most deceitful of all things. And you know this, don't you? How many regrets do you have as a result of you following your heart? 

Following your heart isn't going to get you to where you want to be. 

So what voice should we listen too? First and foremost we need to listen to the voice of God. This requires us reading and meditating on the Bible. It requires us memorizing scripture so that we can contradict the deceptive voices with truth from the voice of God.
