Listen for My Voice

“Love the Lord your God, listen to his voice and hold fast to him. For the Lord is your life.” – Deuteronomy 30:20

Stop worrying, and listen carefully for My voice. But remember that I speak softly. If your thoughts are too noisy, you will not hear me.

I understand that there are many things to think about: school, family, friends, what to wear, what to say, what to do…the list goes on and on. All those thoughts start bouncing around in your mind, zig-zagging all over the place – until the “noise” they make drowns out My voice.

You’ll never hear Me above all that confusion. That is why I gave you a special gift- My Spirit inside you. Ask My Spirit to quiet your thoughts so that you can hear Mine. Then sit peacefully in My Presence – letting my thoughts become yours.
