As a neuropsychologist, I have spent decades problem-solving with patients. But, I’ve realized something about my problem-solving and doing mode. It excludes God from the process and takes Him out of the picture. As I sought Him, I learned what is now my best tip for how to relieve stress at Christmas and on a daily basis throughout the year.
Can you hear Him? Does the roar and whir of the noise around you drown out His voice so you cannot hear when He calls or attempts to warn you of danger? Does it drown out the Voice of safety? His calls will do no good if you cannot or will not hear Him. How and where do you hear God best?
How can I know the difference between God’s voice, my voice and the enemy’s voice? Many Christ-followers have asked that same question at some point in their journey! The enemy would like you to believe you can’t hear God’s voice, but the truth is God is speaking all the time—we just have to learn to become more attuned to hearing His voice and discerning the difference between His voice and the enemy’s voice. Apply these basic principles to help you discern if the voice you are hearing is God’s or the enemy’s.
