There are times when the least informed voices speak the loudest. These dishonoring shouts of ignorance are designed to get your attention, divert your energy and occupy your time in personal defense.
These uninformed voices – voices that do not know your heart – will eventually pass and become distant echoes remembered only by those who have chosen to believe the worst about you.
While all the shouting is taking place, listen for God. His powerful voice will be expressed in a gentle whisper of affirmation. As the shouting voices of condemnation continue to make themselves rudely known, strain to hear the quiet whisper of God. This listening is your act of spiritual warfare.
