Find God in Silence

By Lane P. Jordan:

Sometimes we find God best in silence.

Today was like any other day at church.  We sat in our usual spot.  We sang songs.  The collection plate was passed around.  And then nothing happened.

No one went up to the platform.  People moved uncomfortably in their seats.

And then, on the big video screens, were words.  Words typed into the system by the pastor.

He started typing the sermon he wanted us to feel, not hear.

You see, we all have too much noise in our life, he wrote. Too much going on.  From work to chores to school to family to drama to problems, our lifestyles cause us too much noise.

We need to ask ourselves:  Are we so busy that we can’t find God in our daily lives?

Are you so busy that you are missing the voice of God?

How are we going hear God when He speaks if we aren’t listening?

“Be still, and know that I am God.” Psalm 46:10

God tells us to be still.  To be quiet.  So we can hear His voice.

This Sunday, I found God in that silence.  And what was even more remarkable, I found joy coming out from my Spirit.  It was as if all the unimportant things stopped and the important part of being with God was heard and felt.

Why not stop right now and listen for the voice of God in your life?
