Be Still and Hear the Voice of the Lord!

We live in a very noisy world. It honks at us, demands speed from us, robs us our centering stillness.

This world is filled with words. We are inundated with one wave of information after another and hardly can stop the flow.

The Bible says. "Be still and know that I am God." It is our job to find stillness in this world today.
We could go for a walk without any phone on us.
We could listen to music, especially classical, without words.
We could get up early before the noise starts and spend time in quiet.
We could find a way to be still if we really tried and valued stillness.

It is our job to "BE STILL". If we have lost the most important voice of the Lord we must train ourselves to tune out and tune in.

Jesus also withdrew to pray. How much so do we, his sheep, or his wandering sheep, or his lost sheep, need to feed ourselves in the balm of stillness?
