There are two kinds of whispers taking place in your
life. One whisper is spoken behind your back. This whisper demeans and
dishonors you. The other whisper – the whisper of God – is spoken directly to
you, face-to-face. The whispers of God affirm and encourage.
There is a problem. You keep turning around to listen
to the negative whispers. You are giving too much credit to what is being said
behind your back. These whispers have you twisted around to try to hear what
they are saying. Your focus has shifted to what is in your past, not what is
promised in your future. God’s whispers of hope are always out in front of you
inviting you to something good and new. God will only have your visit your past
to set you free from its failure and bondage so you can begin to move forward
You can never stop these behind-the-back whisperers.
They will always be there to demean what they do not understand or what makes
them feel jealous. Turn around and look ahead into your future – this is where
the face of God is positioned speaking words of affirmation inviting you to
step forward into a place of hope and destiny.
