And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice. And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers.
The Bible says that there are so many kinds of voices in the world, and none of them is without signification (1Corinthians 14:10).
God is not expecting you to listen to every voice in the earth and follow it. He made it simple for us. Jesus said "My sheep hear my voice and they follow me."
This makes our choices easier. When we receive instruction from God, we don’t have to think twice about rather we should follow His instruction or someone else's. Our answer should always be, "Yes Lord, I’ll obey you."
Too many choices sometimes bring confusion to the hearer. We sometimes go through life asking everyone for their advise and opinion about our situation and never stop to ask the one who knows--God.
Jesus said, as His sheep, we would flee from the voice of strangers because we know not their voice. Any voice that does not agree with God and His Word should be considered strange to Christians; and God has given us permission to flee from it.
Flee defined: run away from a place or situation of danger.
The voice of a stranger (words that disagree with God) are dangerous; and if followed, can produce dangerous life threaten results.
God is the only one who will go before us and always lead us in the right direction. So as the voices of this world clamor for your attention be confident and know that the Good Shepherd has all the instruction and direction you need for a safe journey through this earth.
