Ever notice how noise fills our lives? We wake to music or alarms. We get in the car and what’s the first thing we do? We slip in a CD, plug in an iPod, or turn on the radio. When we walk into the house or a hotel room, the first thing we do is turn on the TV. It seems that, with noise, we just don’t feel so alone. Sometimes, we use the noise as a buffer to keep from thinking about our problems or doing things we know we should do.
In the midst of all of this noise, are you missing the most important voice of all?
In 1 Kings, the Bible tells us that God sometimes speaks in a still, small voice. In the busyness and noisiness of our lives, it’s easy to miss Him. The only way to hear Him is to make an intentional effort to quiet the noise of our lives and spend some time listening, through prayer and reading His Word. You will never get a more important phone call or crucial message.
Find some time each day to be alone and quiet, and listen to the most important voice of all. It will enrich your life tremendously.
