Good morning, Father.

Life can get crazy, messy, and take unexpected turns. The concept of silence seems an almost alien  idea in a world of impetuous activity. Unfortunately, we are affirmed by the world when we have calendars of back-to-back obligations. That in reality eventually brings to us fatigue from frantic living.

From stories in Scripture, we know that Jesus was busy. What can we learn from His example of handling this busyness? Jesus chose silence. Why? So He could simply, quietly be with God, the Father.

Without silence, our lives are in danger. Without listening, our prayers are just one-way conversation. It is in the silence, we will be assured that Christ walks with us. It is in the listening, we will be strengthened to face the rhythms and realities of every day.

So, this day, let God take your hand and be silent for a while.

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

In the power of the name of Jesus, Prince of Peace.
