The still small voice

How can we hear the still small voice of God if we’re not giving Him the space to speak to us?

I’m asking myself – and you.

When I’m driving to work, I listen to books on CD that I check out from a library that’s conveniently along the way. I tend to listen to books that are fiction. My reasoning is that since I’m thinking all day long, so I need a break from analytical thinking by putting my mind in neutral.

But if I’m filling that neutral mind with a story, I don’t have space to listen to God.

And I’ll begin my drive by asking God to speak to me while I drive.

Will you join me in this challenge?

Who knows – we may end up by being nicer drivers too!

  1. Thank you ,Paul !
    Jon’s last writing here is of the Trinity talking of us and for us.
    You just wrote of the necessary need of us to listen to the Trinity.
    I got a memory suddenly ~
    I grew up with prayer meeting as part of church. We sang ,maybe a short devotional ,and then the audible prayers began for the needs of people, praises to God ,etc. As someone was praying audibly, all the others listened.
    God is praying audibly for us and we need to make time to listen to Him !!!
