But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. Matthew 4:4
I recently got a new job at a huge online retailer during the Holiday season and I have to say that it's been quite an experience in comparison to my last occupation. One of the the things that is beginning to become a "thorn" in my side is that I don't have control over the music that's being funneled throughout the building. You have to understand that for the last six years or so I haven't listen to any secular radio stations for more than a minute of a quick scan through the dials getting to the Christian music stations, so, it's been quite an experience these last few weeks to say the least. Mindless, empty, and dumbed down are a few of the adjectives that come to mind when trying to describe how I feel when listening to today's popular top forty hits. I seriously feel like my IQ has dropped a few points over the last few weeks in that I can barely put a coherent sentence together upon leaving the building each day.There's no way a person can take this mess in on a frequent basis and not be influenced. Music speaks to the soul bypassing our logic and filtering systems going straight to our heart planting seeds of destruction. These seeds will grow into full fruition and manifest themselves one way or another. Thus, it behooves us to be mindful of what we take into our ear gate, and eye gate for these seeds can grow into trees of iniquity that will produce nothin but trouble in your life. What goes in WILL come out!
Music is a language and we can't forget that the enemy of our souls is very proficient in speaking that language. He knows just how to swoon the ladies, rouse the men, and entertain the kiddies, all the while planting seeds meant for our destruction and not for our edification.
We have to be extra vigilant to the schemes of our adversary today, and one simple and sure way to defend yourself is to hide in the WORD of God. The Word will help shield, sharpen, and reinforce your mind against the weaponized propaganda that's conjured to assault you. The mind truly is the battlefield. Get the mind and the body will follow! We must remember to fest on the Word of God as to stay satiated and content so that the "ear candy" of the world doesn't take root in our hearts. May the grace of Jesus be with you!
