Just for a moment on this Sunday morning
Close your mouth
and open your ears
and your heart
Wait quietly for the Lord to speak to your heart.
Listen closely to the quiet whispers of truth, even if they convict, and ignore the clamoring lies.
Listen closely to the precious words of grace, even if you feel unworthy, and know there is no condemnation.
Listen earnestly to the quiet melody of hope, even when it seems impossible, and wait on the Lord for His salvation.
I often find myself in prayer, talking, talking, talking. When I approach the throne of grace I often find it difficult to be quiet enough to hear the Spirit speaking truth into my life, and sometimes I become frustrated because it seems as though He isn’t speaking at all. And I realized that maybe I’m too busy yammering on and I miss His quiet, gentle voice of truth.
Maybe it’s temptation, or maybe just part of the way I’m wired, but I often struggle with being quiet and with waiting, both of which God instructs us to do!
This week I’m challenging myself intentionally wait – quiet and still – for the Holy Spirit to minister to my heart with Truth from God’s Word. Maybe you struggle with being quiet and with waiting on God, would you like to join me this week?
Here’s a little truth, straight from the Word of God, for you today. I need this reminder this week, maybe you do too.
