Sometimes, you have to turn down the sounds to hear the voice of the Lord. Turn it way down. Not just noises, not just chatter – but sound.
Turn it down to where it is silent. Even the music–turn down the music.
To everything there is a season. A time to dance and a time to laugh (see Ecclesiastes 3:4) – a time to speak, and a time to keep silence (see Ecclesiastes 3:7). Amen, “to keep silence” means rightfully – to observe (to keep), to ALLOW (consent to) silence. Selah.
As men and women of God, we have to allow silence to have its pure course in our lives. Silence keeps our conscience’s pure and silence allows us to hear God’s voice more sweetly. Make room for His beautiful spirit by clearing your mind from unnecessary sounds, while you seek His guidance.
Today I turn down the sounds of my natural reality and in my busy work life, to hear from God.
I need a move of God. He has given me His comforting touch, as well as His comforting Word. Now, I just want to hear more of His Holy Spirit whisper ever-so gently in my ear.
But, to do that and to sweetly enjoy communing with His spirit – you must turn down the sound. I find that when I do this, I am able to be used more completely by Him. I am able to allow Him to lead me more clearly.
Prayer: Lord, keep us today and always in our holy and righteous walk with You. Help us to turn down the sound in order to commune with your gentle Holy Spirit. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
