DON’T LET THE NOISE OF THIS WORLD KEEP YOU FROM HEARING THE VOICE OF GOD!

IN SEARCH OF SILENCE!

I HAVE CALMED AND QUIETED MY SOUL. (PSALM 131:2)

My next record should be 45 minutes of silence”, said singer Meg Hutchinson, “because that’s what we’re missing most in society.”

Silence is indeed hard to find. Cities are notoriously noisy due to the high concentration of traffic and people. There seems to be no escape from loud music, loud machines, noisy generators, and loud voices. But the kind of noise that endangers our spiritual well-being is not the noise we can’t escape but the noise we invite into our lives. Some of use noise as a way of shutting out loneliness: voices of TV and radio personalities give us the illusion of companionship. Some of us use it as a way of shutting out our own thoughts: other voices and opinions keep us from having to think for ourselves. Some of us use noise as a way of shutting out the voice of God: constant chatter, even when we’re talking about God, keeps us from hearing what God has to say.

But Jesus, even during His busiest times, made a point of seeking out places of solitude where He could carry on a conversation with God (Mark 1:35). Even if we can’t find a place that is perfectly quiet, we need to find a place to quiet our souls (Ps 131:2), a place where God has our full attention. – Julie Ackerman Link

There is a quiet resting place,

Where peace and joy are found;

Where burdens may be laid aside

And faith and love abound-Moore

Don’t let the noise of this world keep you from hearing the voice of The Lord.

May God Almighty prosper Nigeria and Israel and defend them from all their enemies in Jesus Christ Name, Amen!
