Patrick Morley, Executive Chairman of Man in the Mirror Ministries, joins us this week on The Noble Man Podcast to discuss his new book, The Four Voices: Taking Control of the Conversation in Your Head.
It’s not just a self-talk issue. The Bible speaks to four “voices” we hear in our heads: the world, the flesh, the devil, and the Holy Spirit, and it’s up to us to learn how to distinguish and master each of these voices. Patrick walks us through how we can figure out which voice is speaking and then take control of the conversation by walking in the power of the Holy Spirit.
Every man relates to struggle in some way – lots of “good” Christians struggle. Many have had shadows cast over their lives, and the echoes of the negative voices remain. They wonder if God’s grace is sufficient for their circumstance. “The core message of the world is that Jesus Christ alone is not enough to make you happy.”
The enemy is a master of deceit, doubt, and despair.
The great news is that the Holy Spirit is infinitely and exponentially more powerful than the other voices combined. A lot of guys have the Holy Spirit, but they haven’t figured out how to “turn on the Holy Spirit switch.” It requires work and personal discipline.
“The Holy Spirit tends to do his best work when I do my best work.”
Listen and be encouraged that you can diminish the negative voices in your head through the power of the Holy Spirit.
“Little children, you are from God and have overcome them, for he who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.” 1 John 4:4
