Are You Listening to What Others Tell you or What Scripture Teaches??

All your life you are told the things you cannot do.
All your life they will say you’re not good enough or strong enough or talented enough;
they will say you’re the wrong height or the wrong weight
or the wrong type to play this or be this or achieve this.
THEY WILL TELL YOU NO, a thousand times no, until all the no’s become meaningless.
All your life they will tell you no, quite firmly and very quickly.
AND YOU WILL TELL THEM YES.
-Anon.

Throughout our lives we will come across many situations like what is stated above. We will be told we cannot do this or that. In the Spiritual world we may even come across others who tell us there is no way to live the type of life God expects of us so there is no sense in even trying. The question for each of us is whether or not we are willing to accept that and give up, or trust in the teachings of God’s Word that we can follow His will and He will help us to do so. Consider the following verses now and each and every time someone tries to tell you it is impossible to follow God’s will.

1 Cor 10:13 “13 No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it.”

Phil 4:13 “13 I can do all things through Chris who strengthens me.”

The question we must all ask ourselves is, “Are we listening to and believing the word of man or the Word of God?”

Prov 2:6 “6 For the Lord gives wisdom; From His mouth come knowledge and understanding;”
