DCLM Sincere Milk 27 July 2022 Devotional by Pastor W. F. Kumuyi — The voice of God
TOPIC: THE VOICE OF GOD
TEXT: 1 CORINTHIANS 15:33, 34
34Awake to righteousness, and sin not; for some have not the knowledge of God: I speak this to your shame.
Key Verse: “Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners” (1 Corinthians 15:33).
Ruth heard the voice within her, “Don’t ever say you did it, otherwise you will be punished.” At the same time, she heard another voice, “Tell the truth, even if you’ll get punished.” She went ahead and told her mom the truth. Although she was scolded, she was happy that she obeyed the voice of God that told her to tell the truth.
Today, children hear and listen to different things; some are good while some are bad. Our minds and lives go towards the direction of what we hear often. Remember, evil communications (voices) corrupt good manners. Friends of Jesus must be careful about what they watch and listen to, the books they read and the friends they keep.
Judas Iscariot yielded to the voice of Satan, betrayed Jesus and ended badly. Paul, the apostle, obeyed the voice of Jesus which he heard on his way to Damascus. He became a friend of Jesus, lived to please Jesus and ended well.
The voice you choose to obey will determine how your life will be. Choose to always obey the voice of Jesus, just like Paul did.
Prayer: Father, help me to live my life to please You in Jesus’ Name.
