The Power of the Quiet Moments

As I search for a song to inspire and remind me of my Good Good Father in the quiet moments of the morning, I find myself turning the music down. It’s so loud in the dark, quiet room. When my kids came down for breakfast I wanted to play it for them. I had to turn the volume up as loud as it would go. What was too loud in the quiet room now wasn’t loud enough. It was a perfect visual of what happens in the quiet, alone moments of life. As we sit down in solitude, our spirits and minds are quiet and we hear the still, small voice so clearly with no noise or interruptions.
The opposite is also true. When we clog our life with business and loud activity we can’t hear clearly. We strain to listen. We want answers and feel God is far. He’s not, he’s near drawing you near to Him. It’s up to us to stop, make time and listen in the quiet moments. He speaks. The enemy wants us to keep clutter and noise around us so that we feel our loving Father is not near. Don’t believe it! He loves you and hears you. He wants to speak to you. Put yourself in a position to hear clearly. It’s a good indicator to know if your surroundings are truly quiet when you must lower the volume. He doesn’t always speak to us in the big earthquake moments of life but mostly in the quiet, personal moments. Get alone. Put your phone down. Turn the TV off. Close your computer. Sit, listen and be still. His ways are perfect.
