Teen Devotion on Listening to God's voice

Anyone who belongs to God listens gladly to the words of God. But you don’t listen because you don’t belong to God. – John 8:47 (NLT)

What you listen to is important. It’s easy to listen to bad news, bad circumstances, bad reports and allow those things to cause your heart to be troubled.

Today’s Bible verse helps us see the importance of listening to God’s word. In the Bible (God’s word) we find truth. We find the answers we look for. In the Bible we find the hope we need to get through tough and difficult times.

Today’s Truth: Listen to God’s Word, Not the World

It’s easy to listen to the things in the world and let the world’s voice speak louder than God’s voice. However, if we determine to listen to what God says, focus on that voice, we can be at peace.

So today, regardless of what is going on in your life. No matter what circumstances and situation you face, choose to listen to God’s word. Make God’s word your focus and you’ll find that your heart will be at peace.
