Take Your Hands Off Your Ears

Psalm 16:8
The Voice

He is ever present with me; at all times He goes before me.  I will not live in fear or abandon my calling because He stands at my right hand.

No matter how loud the distractions of life are, He doesn't change.  Some days you do want to abandon where God has placed you because you feel like you think you cannot hear His voice anymore.  Those things that distract us - and they are different for each of us - can get so loud at times.  Spiritually, mentally and emotionally you feel like putting your hands over your ears and shutting it all out. 

In a lot of ways, it does come down to fear.  Fear of others, fear of a situation, fear of weakness...insert your own fear here.  According to this scripture, and I love this particular version of it, He is always present, He is going before us, He has called us and He is the power in our lives. 

Remember these things, take your hands off your ears and you'll find the distractions have dulled and faded to a whisper.
