Your Brain’s Caller ID

caller IDCarpe Diem, seize the day (actually it means “pluck the day”), is the lesson Robin Williams’ character in Dead Poets’ Society tried to teach his students. Let’s seize the day to learn another lesson from Robin Williams’ real life: use your tools to shut down all the voices in your head, save one – Jesus.
In a 2006 interview with a TV reporter, Williams said, “Falling back into alcohol abuse (ed. note – he was sober for 20 years) was very gradual. It’s the same voice/thought that… you’re standing at a precipice and you look down, there’s a voice and it’s a little quiet voice that goes, ‘Jump,’ The same voice that goes, ‘Just one.’ … And the idea of just one for someone who has no tolerance for it, that’s not the possibility.”
In his own words, Williams listened to the voice that said, “Jump,” take your drug of choice. What voice in your head are you listening to? It should be the Word of Truth, Jesus Himself, through specific lie fighting truths, your caller ID mechanism, which you’ve stored in your brain. Seize the day by shutting down all the voices (doubt, fear, unworthiness, inept, unworthiness, anger, etc.) that tell you that your drug of choice will meet your need, even in small doses! It’s a lie and we all know it.
Someone once said, “A loud voice cannot compete with a clear voice, even if it’s a whisper.” Choose to focus on the clear small voice telling you, “Come to Me and I’ll give you rest, peace of mind and security right now.” Jesus isn’t always screaming, but He’s always talking. Will you choose to listen and follow only Him? Seize the day, this very moment, to be victorious to walk away from that precipice towards His loving and safe arms.
