Who's Leading Your Life?
It's crazy how many people have dropped out of performing at the Presidential Inauguration because of peer pressure (i.e. bullying). The other day I saw that the singer Jennifer Holiday cancelled her performance because she was getting death threats. Her so called fans didn't want her to perform so they sent her death threats?! Is that really a fan? (yikes!)
It's amazing how many people allow the voices of social media to lead their lives. And because of fear people let them dictate what they should and shouldn't do.
When you have Christ, only God should be the one leading. Everything should go through him. It's a dangerous thing to let people play God in your life.
You have to turn down the voices of social media and anyone else who is trying to play God in your life. That's what Christian artist Travis Greene did. He's performing at the Inauguration and said for the time being he's not on social media. He said he was already taking a break from social media when he was asked to perform. With social media voices turned down he was able to determine what he believed God wanted him to do. He has a song called Intentional you can check out here on YouTube.
Of course God may call one person to do one thing and another person to do something else, but the important thing is that you're hearing God's voice above all the others.
(I'm not writing this because I'm for Trump or against Trump...I am for God leading. How can you be led by God if you're busy listening to everyone else?)
Psalm 118:5-9 In my distress I prayed to the Lord, and the Lord answered me and set me free. The Lord is for me, so I will have no fear. What can mere people do to me? Yes, the Lord is for me; he will help me. I will look in triumph at those who hate me. It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in people. It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in princes.
