It is hard to stop and listen. The noise of our world roars, rattles and clangs in our ears. Our thoughts are sprinting here and there with what we should do and how to handle life. Our hearts are filled with shouts of fear, worry, sorrow and guilt. How can one stop and listen in the midst of this cacophony?
The Lord speaks, “Be still and know that I am God.” (Psalm 46:10)
Listening takes effort. When we work at it and learn to tune into God’s still small voice we discover the life God has given us. We discover the heart of our Abba. We learn his desires, his love, and his care. We sense his presence, are blessed with his grace and are filled with his peace.
The voice of our Abba stands out when we quiet our hearts, and still our thoughts. His word enlightens our hearts. His mind cleanses our thoughts. His truth guides our lives. Now his life fills ours. Listen, be still, relax and know that he is God.
“Show us your unfailing love, O LORD, and grant us your salvation. I will listen to what God the LORD will say; he promises peace to his people, his saints — but let them not return to folly.” Psalms 85:7-8 NIV
