Stop the Voices in Your Head

Have you ever heard voices in your head? No I am not crazy.  But I do know that not all voices are good – and sometimes we just need to tell them to shut up.  Especially the accusing voice.  The voice that likes to condemn, and put down, and talks about how unworthy you are.  Can I say right now, that is NOT the voice of God.  God is the lifter of our heads.  It is the enemy trying to get us to run and hide in the bushes. Because we have a Royal Calling – a Destiny in the Kingdom. And we have been authorized to advance the Kingdom – we are Ambassadors of Christ. We carry His Power and Authority to do His work. That’s why the enemy keeps trying to talk to us and get us to run and hide. Like Adam and Eve did after they ate that apple – they went and hid in the bushes.

Psalm 3

 

But You, O Lord, are a shield for me, my glory, and the lifter of my head.

(Psalm 3:3 AMP)

 

 

Remember Eve in the Garden with the snake? He told Eve that God was holding out on her. That if she ate that apple she would be like God. But guess what – he lied to her. SHE ALREADY WAS LIKE GOD! That stupid snake told her she was NOT something that she already was!  So, the enemy accused her. Told her she was NOT…when she already was. What does the enemy accuse you of? What is that voice in your head falsely accusing you of?

If you hear – You are NOT pretty – it is a lie.  God says You are fearfully and wonderfully made.

If you hear – You are NOT smart – it is a lie. God says You have the mind of Christ.

If you hear – You are NOT going to be free – it is a lie. Jesus Christ already paid the price for your freedom. You are free!

See what I mean? Don’t believe that voice. It is not true.  That is why it is so important for us to read the Word.  How do we know what is true if we don’t know the Word? How can we tell the enemy to shut up because God says…..if we don’t know what God said.

The Accuser  is no longer in God’s ear whispering. We do not live in Job’s era.  God kicked the Devil out of Heaven.  He doesn’t live there anymore. This is New Testament times. However, now the Devil may be in your ear accusing you. Just because he says something does not mean it is true.  He lied to Eve and I think he is the father of lies.

You are of your father, the devil, and it is your will to practice the lusts and gratify the desires [which are characteristic] of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a falsehood, he speaks what is natural to him, for he is a liar [himself] and the father of lies and of all that is false. (John 8:44 AMP)

 

Cast him down – God already did. Enforce the victory!  Do not let that condemning voice talk anymore – it is your head. Take control of your thoughts. Any thoughts that are not in line with the Word of God YOU have the AUTHORITY and LEGAL RIGHT to take them captive and kick them out!  Yes, there is a battle going on  – but we know who wins!  Take charge of your thoughts! We get to kick out the bad ones!

 

 For though we walk (live) in the flesh, we are not carrying on our warfare according to the flesh and using mere human weapons.

 For the weapons of our warfare are not physical [weapons of flesh and blood], but they are mighty before God for the overthrow and destruction of strongholds,

 [Inasmuch as we] refute arguments and theories and reasonings and every proud and lofty thing that sets itself up against the [true] knowledge of God; and we lead every thought and purpose away captive into the obedience of Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One),

 Being in readiness to punish every [insubordinate for his] disobedience, when your own submission and obedience [as a church] are fully secured and complete. (2 Corinthians 10:3-6 AMP)

 

 

And more good news – Jesus is the one who is whispering good things in God’s ear about us!

Who shall bring any charge against God’s elect [when it is] God Who justifies [that is, Who puts us in right relation to Himself? Who shall come forward and accuse or impeach those whom God has chosen? Will God, Who acquits us?]
Who is there to condemn [us]? Will Christ Jesus (the Messiah), Who died, or rather Who was raised from the dead, Who is at the right hand of God actually pleading as He intercedes for us?

(Romans 8:33-34 AMP)

 

God wants to lift our heads. I think I’ll let Him – what about you?

    1. I understand Anna, I did too for so many years. But it has stopped since I stopped saying out loud what I heard in my head. It was like when I said it out loud it came to be. I don’t want to be a vehicle for the enemy any more.
      I started reading and speaking the Word out loud. That shut them up right away, lol! And they left, praise God! Praying for you too, Diana

  1. Diana, this is absolutely lovely! The enemy’s voice is SO LOUD compared to the gentle whisper of God. Yet, we are made to be attuned to His voice if we will pay attention, if we will release ourselves from the prison of that other voice. When we reach out and touch His fingertips, His voice becomes all too clear: we are His masterpiece! :-D <3
