Noiseless-ness

In our technologically advanced world, we have access to information at the blink of an eye. We can talk to someone across the world, and get news while it is happening. People in stores, cars, offices, and sporting events have cell phones growing as attachments to their heads.

Our computers, satellite TV receivers, ipads, ipods, i-everythings, have innundated us with more activity than we can handle and they generate new kinds of noise. Even when stopping at a traffic light, the boom box in the car next to us is vibrating music (is it really music?) we don't want to hear.

With all these sounds reverberating around us, how can we hear God?  
 
  • Turn everything off. "Be still and know that I am God" (Psalm 46:10).
 
  • Listen. "...and after the earthquake a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire and after the fire a still small voice" (I Kings 19:12)

  • Respond. "Oh, bless our God, you peoples! And make the voice of His praise to be heard (Psalm 66:8).

Prioritizing a few minutes of absolute quiet each day will be refreshment to your soul. 
 
You are invited to share what you hear.
