Silence

20 May

In the silence of the heart God speaks.  If you face God in prayer and silence, God will speak to you.  Then you will know that you are as one with Him. Empty yourself for it is only when you realize you are empty, that God can fill you with Himself.  Souls of prayer are souls of great silence.

It is through prayer we talk to God, it is through prayer that He talks to us. Yet still so many say prayer is wasted time because they aren’t answered. But they are being answered, we just aren’t listening.

We were born with one mouth and two ears. This because listening is more important than talking, not only in everyday life, but especially in prayer. It is so important that you were provided two ears just so you can hear what He is telling you.

Through the the years I have heard many complaints about prayer and have talked many times on how prayer is answered. Many think that God must be ignoring them because they just aren’t getting the answers they want. I have learned that God gives me just what I need when I need it. It may be different from what I want, but it is exactly what I need.

I am reminded of my younger days when Grandfather would tell me: “Just because you don’t see His hand, don’t question His plan.” God has a plan for each and everyone of us, we just have to be patient and listen to what He whispers to our hearts.

In the bible every time Jesus prayed he went away from the crowd and prayed in seclusion. We are instructed in the bible to pray in a closet or some other place of privacy. The reason for doing this is so we can hear what His answer is. When He whispers in your ear or into your heart, it is best to be in a quiet place so you have no distractions from hearing His words.

As for myself, I am one who prays unceasingly. Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. 1Thessalonians 5:16-18

For me this has been the most efficient way to talk with God. He is always there to guide my every move and I am always looking for ways to share the blessings He has given me. We are in continuous conversation with each other.

One last thing, in every circumstance, good or bad, there is a gift waiting to.be shared. Our life grows on how we accept and share these gifts. This brings me back to what I mentioned earlier – Just because you can’t see His hand, don’t question His plan!

Walk daily with God at your side.

Love,

Ed
