Listening To Wrong Advice
Psalms 1:1 How well God must like you-you don’t hang out at Sin Saloon, you don’t slink along Dead-End Road, you don’t go to Smart-Mouth College.
Advice is often cheap. Have you ever noticed how many people there are that only want to tell you what is good for you? Or continually want to tell you how you should live your life.
We often make a mess of our lives, not because we don’t know what is right but because we listen to the wrong advice and act on it. I heard a saying in A.A. many years ago that rings as true today as it did then. “If you want to be a winner stick with the winners!” If you want advice about living life recovery speak to someone who is successfully living life recovery, who have put the past behind them and are kicking goals with God’s help.
There are many voices in the world telling us what to do. May we always remember that God is also always speaking to us. He has something special to say to all of us. He speaks through His Word, He speaks through those living victoriously and He speaks to us through quiet times of prayer and meditation. When we take time to listen to Him we will begin to view life differently and walk in His ways.
