“Wanting to satisfy the crowd, Pilate released Barabbas to them; and after having Jesus flogged, he handed him over to be crucified.”
Mark 15:15 CSB
What voices are you listening to the most?
We may have good intentions, but we are ALL selfish deep down.
There’s only one who 100% has your back no matter what.
He brutally died for you.
Listen to Him over anything else, and you’ll be ok.
You may not get everything you want in life, and you will still have trouble, because life is hard.
It’s not His fault it’s hard, it’s ours.
Listening to Him first will help you navigate the difficult paths and storms.
He’s has something to tell you if you’ll carve out some uninterrupted time with no distractions so you can actually here him.
I know no better time than early in the morning.
Do it consistently, you will produce the FRUIT of Freedom from being so concerned what others think of you.
And you won’t make the same mistake Pilate made.
You won’t squelch Jesus out of your life to please man.
