His Voice

That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive. (Ephesians 4:14)
Paul wrote to the church at Ephesus to guard themselves against the widely changing interpretations of doctrine.
He warned them to not get tossed around emotionally by people who spoke into their lives.
Let us Seek Christ first before we go to people, regardless of who they are.
Mentors and accountability groups cannot take the place of the Holy Spirit.
Pastors and bible study teachers are still human…growing and learning just as you are.
(You)have one Lord, …one God and Father of us all who is [sovereign] God, all in all.
If I am confused, let me go to my prayer room first… not my phone! God sends us mature believers so can become mature too; but His voice must remain first in all we do.
If thou put the brethren in remembrance of these things, thou shalt be a good minister of Jesus Christ, nourished up in the words of faith and of good doctrine, whereunto thou hast attained. 1 Timothy 4:6  
When I read this devotion I had to take a moment and reflect on what was being said. I think often times we are quick to seek guidance, opinion and approval from man, when in reality, we need to first go to God, seek Him and follow His leading. I love when it said, “His voice must remain first in all we do”. Simplicity at its best.
Have a beautiful and uplifting day in The Lord!
