Daily Journal: Listening in the Quiet

Therefore turn thou to thy God: keep mercy and judgment, and wait on thy God continually. – Hosea 12:6 KJV

It feels like your floating on the top of gentle waves, when that still, small voice rises within your spirit.

Hearing, listening to and heeding the voice of God is essential for every child of God. He speaks to everyone of us and He is always speaking. However, because there are so many distractions in our lives like, social media, electronic devices, games, our work, chores and many other things; we often do not hear Him.

That is why it is necessary to find some quiet time. In the still moments, our mind is able to declutter and quiet down. Then the messages of God can rise up, out of the depths of our spirit.

I find that either before I go to sleep or as I wake in the mornings, those are the best times. The world outside is quiet and you can get instructions for your day.

Take sometime every day to get in contact with God. Take time to recharge and to center your self in God. It will help you when you get through the storms of life and more importantly, develop a relationship with God.

My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of my hand. -John 10:27-28

Make me to know your ways, O Lord; teach me your paths. Lead me in your truth and teach me, for you are the God of my salvation; for you I wait all the day long.-Psalm 25:4-5

Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him, and he will act. -Psalm 37:4-5

Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me. -Revelation 3:20
