The Bible teaches in Romans 10: 17 that faith comes by hearing. This means that faith in anything comes by hearing. If we hear something long enough and often enough, we will begin to believe it.

So, wouldn’t you agree that what we listen to is extremely important?

Indeed, it is!  

If we listen to lies long enough and often enough, we will begin to believe those lies. Many people today are in emotional bondage because they have listened to lies most of their lives and have come to believe those lies.

By the same token, if we listen to the truth long enough and often enough, we will begin to believe the truth. Those who have chosen to listen to the truth are the spiritual giants of this generation.

There are basically two sources to which we can lend our ears: the World and the Word. The World speaks lies, whereas the Word speaks truth. It is up to us to choose whether or not we are going to listen to the World or to the Word.

Let’s ask ourselves this critical question: Am I lending my ears to the World or to the Word?

Now, it’s YOUR turn:  Are you lending your ears to the World or to the Word?  Please leave a comment in the box below.

  1. Timely post, dearest MaryAnn! I listen and read the Word, but I have to be completely honest, it is difficult every single morning to see and hear endless counts of national/local massacres, robberies and torture of children; I has also been hard to see weather conditions threatening people’s lives and destroy their home. I pray, of course, and I think the news and social media contribute to the many problems in our world.

    • Yes, Skye, it is difficult to keep our eyes on the Word when we see what is going on around us. One of Satan’s chief tactics is to distract us, to divert our attention from the Word. We must continually lasso our thoughts and bring them back to the Word. We read this in 2 Corinthians 10: 5: “We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.” Blessings to you!
