Can You Be Quiet?
We live in a world where it’s hard to sit still and even more challenging to be silent.
We are conditioned to be moving, active and physically engaged. And as we do so, we expect to be surrounded with sound, to be constantly exposed to an auditory stimulus.
To be still can be a stretch for us and to be quiet, quite unattainable. Many would ask, “What’s the purpose of being still?” “Why should I be quiet?” There’s nothing to be gained by doing so.
But God has a different idea. He says “Be still and I know that I am God.” And upon reflection, King David adds, “Silence is praise to you.”
Being still connects us with God and being quiet praises him.
Be still…be quiet…
