Wisdom and Discernment: How to Truly Listen to God's Voice and Not Satan's

Try listening for God's Voice. Are you listening?

When the enemy tells you lies, you need to stand up to him:
Here is a Devotional that I spent time on:
1. Yes, I have found myself making excuses for failing to follow God's commands.
2. Ways I have benefitted from obeying God's commands are rewards that he gives me or allows me to have.
3. Hesitantly is the word I would use to describe how I am to obeying my Master's commands. This tells me in my relationship with him that I am choosing not to quickly obey him. This means that I need to practice listening carefully to follow the sound of his Voice and obey it!

Exodus 20:2-17 NIV
[2] “I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery. [3] “You shall have no other gods before me. [4] “You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. [5] You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, [6] but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love me and keep my commandments. [7] “You shall not misuse the name of the Lord your God, for the Lord will not hold anyone guiltless who misuses his name. [8] “Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy. [9] Six days you shall labor and do all your work, [10] but the seventh day is a sabbath to the Lord your God. On it you shall not do any work, neither you, nor your son or daughter, nor your male or female servant, nor your animals, nor any foreigner residing in your towns. [11] For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but he rested on the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy. [12] “Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the Lord your God is giving you. [13] “You shall not murder. [14] “You shall not commit adultery. [15] “You shall not steal. [16] “You shall not give false testimony against your neighbor. [17] “You shall not covet your neighbor's house. You shall not covet your neighbor's wife, or his male or female servant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor.”
Philippians 2:12-13 NIV
[12] Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed---not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence---continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, [13] for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose.
1 Thessalonians 5:24 NIV
[24] The one who calls you is faithful, and he will do it.

I hope you fully listen to God's Voice and not the enemy's! I pray you listen to His Voice instead:

Enjoy your weekend!
