Create silence for God’s voice

“Stand still, and I will hear what the Lord will command” (Num. 9:8).
“I will hear what God the Lord will speak” (Psa. 85:8).

How silent are God’s voices. How few men are strong enough to be able to endure silence, for in silence God is speaking to the inner ear.

Let us then labor for an inward stillness—
An inward stillness and an inward healing;
That perfect silence where the lips and heart
Are still, and we no longer entertain
Our own imperfect thoughts and vain opinions,
But God alone speaks in us, and we wait
In singleness of heart, that we may know
His will, and in the silence of our spirits,
That we may do His will, and do that only.
—H. W. Longfellow.
