Did you know God has a tone of voice? When He speaks to us, He comforts, encourages, or convicts with kindness. He offers the perfect balance of truth and grace. So if the voice inside your head has an accusing tone, then it’s not from your heavenly Father. This is what Tasha Layton sings about in her song “Look What You’ve Done,” and it’s what we discover in Scripture as well.
Let’s compare and contrast the voice of evil and righteousness together this week.
In this episode, I discuss:
- Taking a B.I.T.E. out of Scripture – this week’s Bible Interaction Tool Exercises include:

- The 30 Day Music Challenge

- The Place We Find Ourselves Podcast – Episode 42: Accusation & Episode 43: Agreements

- How satan is the “father of lies” – John 8:43-44
- How satan seeks to devour us – 1 Peter 5:8
- How satan as a strategy and sets traps – 1 Timothy 3:7
- One of satan’s strategies — to accuse you of sin and bring condemnation on you to the point that you make an agreement to walk in the accusation rather than the truth and freedom of Christ
- How satan is our accuser, but God is our judge and has canceled the record of debt that stood against us – Colossians 2:13-15
- Paying attention to the tone – evil’s accusations are unkind and harsh, but God’s confrontations never lack kindness
- How the accuser wants to deceive you into forming agreements with his accusations
- How spending time in God’s Word is part of His freedom plan
- Psalm 52 and how it relates to our discussion about agreeing with evil rather than trusting in the steadfast love of God

This Week’s Challenge
Read and meditate on Psalm 52 this week. Follow the cross-reference to 1 Samuel 21-22 to familiarize yourself with the story that inspired David’s song in the first place. It’s not a pretty story, but our very real enemy plays dirty, too. Check out this week’s show notes above for links to the podcast episodes I talk about that highlight the accuser, the agreements we make with his accusations, and how to find freedom.
