I was sent a song this morning called Belong to You by Here be Lions. Here are some of its powerful lyrics:
You called me out of darkness, and SILENCED EVERY LIE
NO OTHER VOICE WILL DEFINE ME, because I belong to you
By Your blood I am adopted and I have taken on Your name
And I need to be reminded that I belong to you
The enemy can’t take what I have or change who I am, I belong to You.
When we said YES to Jesus and gave our lives to Him, I wish we were given ears to only hear HIS VOICE. But we were not. It is one of the areas where we need to work out our faith. It takes DISCIPLINE to attune our ears to HIS VOICE and not all the familiar voices of our past that keep speaking in our present.
In the lyrics above, the writer kept REMINDING himself that the lies in his mind were NOT what DEFINE him, since he now belongs to the Lord by the blood of Jesus.
Take a moment, and ask yourself: WHAT VOICE DEFINES ME?
Is it the voice of the enemy or the voice of our good Shepherd?
John 10:27 "My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me;
When the enemy is speaking lies to us, we need to STOP and REMIND ourselves what the VOICE of our SHEPHERD sound like, and follow it. We must be proactive to destroy these lies!
2 Corinthians 10:5 We are destroying speculations and every lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ,
