If I do this…what will they think? If I go there what will they think? Have you ever heard from the Holy Spirit and you find yourself in a mental debate with that inner voice that can be so obtrusive?
“What will everyone think? Will this make them happy or unhappy?” I play out imaginary scenes in my head projecting various outcomes. WAIT A MINUTE! Who is this voice that I have been listening to? Are you fear? Pride? Insecurity?
As long as I am listening to my head I’m not hearing Him. His hand is outstretched toward me….inviting me on a journey. But I’m too afraid to take His hand……….because this time the voice won the debate.
What will they think??
2 Corinthians 10:5 The Passion Translation (TPT)
5We can demolish every deceptive fantasy[a] that opposes God and break through every arrogant attitude that is raised up in defiance of the true knowledge of God. We capture, like prisoners of war, every thought[b] and insist that it bow in obedience to the Anointed One.
John 16:13 The Passion Translation (TPT)
13 But when the truth-giving Spirit comes, he will unveil the reality of every truth[a] within you. He won’t speak his own message, but only what he hears from the Father, and he will reveal prophetically to you what is to come.
