A manager of a fast food outlet had a unique way of training his employees on how to recognize counterfeit money. He gave them a large stack of legitimate notes with only one counterfeit. They would flip through that stack and learn what a real felt like. As soon as they felt something other than the authentic currency, they stopped and recognized it. The same is true for understanding God’s voice. When we spend so much time hearing and reading God's Word, which is His truth, we will know it well. And anytime the accuser speaks a lie, we’ll recognize it and go back to what we know is true.
The more time we spend in His Presence, the more we know Him. The more we know Him, the more we recognize His voice. Remember, God never changes. Whether we are sitting by ourselves in our lounge, or out having fun with our friends, or hard at work, He is with us. He is always speaking, guiding us on the best pathway for our lives. And He is always listening.
"Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever." (Hebrews 13:8)
Enjoy a good weekend. Be alert for the counterfeit.
