I know the title is long, weird and somewhat creepy but it came to me during my nap. So don’t be alarmed by it. Just follow along I promise it will all make sense in the end.
Last week I was filling out job apps and becoming frustrated. The fact that I know no matter how many I fill out I still probably won’t like the job can be disappointing at times. I know that “working” is not for me in a sense.
I went to sleep that night and clear as day I heard, “why are you settling”? It shook me and caused me to stay up majority of the night. The question was something I’ve asked myself many times but never had an answer to until now. For years I’ve been following the voice of the devil but the voice of God woke me up that night.
See the bible says that Satan comes to kill, steal and destroy. Yeah I know I’m not dead so he hasn’t killed me. Never been robbed so he hasn’t stole from me and I’m still somewhat sane in the head so I haven’t been destroyed in a literal sense. However, I have allowed him to kill my dreams, steal my confidence and destroy my drive I once had.
Satan has this way of getting in our heads and making us feel inadequate. His voice doesn’t sound evil like we like to believe. I’m convinced it sounds like you. Just a regular voice. When God speaks I’ve never heard a loud boom or anything but I always know when He speaks.
Settling and becoming comfortable is easier sometimes. It’s easy just working to pay the bills and become complacent. It’s easy to wake up and go somewhere I don’t want to be and get a check.
I’m not religious but I do want to become more spiritual. I’m gonna believe God that I stop allowing the devil to speak and do a better job listening to Him. I know settling is not something He wants for me or anybody really. So I plan to give writing my all. There’s no reason why I can’t fulfill all the dreams and goals that are in me. This will be a journey but I’m ready to finally listen to the voice of God from here on out.
P.S. I did this from my phone so excuse any grammatical errors.
