In Listening To Hear Him! I chided myself about being a chatter box. This is because, I am very good at talking. I can’t seem to keep my mouth closed when I am in the presence of God which I have come to know is always. He is ever constant with me. I praise the Lord, worship Him, question him, share my thoughts, and my secrets since He is all I’ve got! I am in a constant mood to talk. However, now is a time to listen!
What a dilemma it has been for me to sit down, keep quiet, to be still just for a little while, to rest in God’s embrace so He can speak to me. I need to hear Him! This I have already established and am so eager, however, staying still is not my strong suit.
Oh Lord help me! I want to hear you speak through the pages of your Word! I do! You know I do Lord! Please help me to calm my mind down, help me to put these countless thoughts flowing in my brain into compartment so I have room to hear.
Only you Oh Lord my Father, can calm my anxious thoughts, and comfort me with your joy. Psalms 94:19 -When anxiety was great withing me, your consolation brought me joy.Tweet
I am also asking for grace to bridle my tongue as you speak Lord! Friends, now is not a time to speak aimlessly, for folly flows ceaselessly like a river from an unbridled tongue. Like a broken rudder in a ship, boat or aircraft, is anyone that lacks wisdom to bridle their tongueTweet
When you called for a meeting Lord, wisdom demand that I come early and prepared to listen. You know I haven’t acted as such Lord, help me. Father I need you. Yes, I am trying, but I know I need more than to try. I must discipline myself to be still. I ask for help here Lord. Help me by your Holy Spirit in Jesus mighty name. Amen!.
All Mighty, All Knowing, All Sufficient, All Powerful Father of Glory! Thank you for your faithfulness, grace and mercy!
