Sit Still and Listen

God is more likely to speak to you with a gentle whisper than with a loud voice.

Prayer isn’t talking to God. Prayer is really talking with God. It is a conversation between you and Him; it is a dialogue where you each take turns talking as well as listening.

Most of our prayers include a lot of our own talking, but they usually lack the important aspect of listening. Of course, we don’t mean to suggest that you are going to hear a celestial voice booming in the heavens like the sound of thunder. We don’t even think that you’ll hear an amplified voice like God speaking through a megaphone. That is not how He works. God usually speaks in quietness. You hear Him, not audibly with your ears, but internally in your heart and soul.

The Holy Spirit is God’s voice inside of you. He wants to speak to you, but you need to be quiet for a few moments so you can hear Him.

“Be silent, and know that I am God!” Psalm 46:19
