I’ve been trying to consciously make an effort for solitude, silence, and stillness. The way to clearly hear God’s voice is when I’m still enough to listen.
In 1 Kings 19, evil men were in pursuit of Elijah. He was fearful and on the run. His mind was chock-full of cares and concerns, but where did God meet him?
In the wind? No.
God met him in silence.
As we experience trauma from betrayal, most of us cry out for clarity and direction, yet we seldom completely still ourselves long enough to hear God speak.
Could it be we receive answers when we do?
“Be still and know that I am God.” Psalm 46:10
It’s a command—not a request. Be. Still.
