Psalm 62:5 - "For God alone, O my soul, wait in silence, for my hope is from him."
Our world today is very noisy, busy and at times stressful. When you feel stressed or frustrated, go somewhere that is silent -- your soul will begin to calm down. Inner peace and quiet are vital for hearing from God or sensing the direction He wants us to take.
Outer silence helps promote inner silence. Learn to love silence and you will be more inclined to hear the still, small voice of God. At a time when Elijah desperately needed to receive direction from God, he had to wait until all the noise passed, and only when he was in a gentle stillness did he hear the still, small voice of God speaking to him. (1 Kings 19:11-12)
