A great set of headphones will block out distractions and place the sounds you are listening to in the apparent middle of your head. Surrounding and infiltrating you mind with the sound. Music or talk, both will fill the mind if you have a good set of headphones on.
We need a good set of spiritual headphones as we walk through this life. Distractions will arise at every turn to pull our spiritual mind away from Christ. Temptation will attempt to trip us up and make us fall flat on our faces. But if our spiritual headphones are good the distractions will not steal our focus as our minds are stayed on him.
“I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.” John 16:33 NLT
“No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us. And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:37-39 NLT
So Christ said he has overcome the world. Them Paul says we are victorious and nothing can separate us from God, through this same Christ who overcame the world.
Our great and awesome God, I bring you praise and thanksgiving for the wonderful things you have done. You are most holy and worthy of our praise. Give us this day a fantastic set of noise cancelling headphones for our spiritual man so our minds can be firmly focused on you. In Jesus name, amen.
