Most days are not quiet. But today, it is. When it’s quiet, I’m searching for the reasons it is so. I’m usually happy when the quiet finally comes, but today is different. When I can hear the clock ticking and the refrigerator running, it’s quiet. Normally, I’ll look at my phone or watch something on TV. I’ll take a shower or pull out the vacuum cleaner. I’ll think of something to distract me from this silence…
Maybe God is trying to get my attention with this silence and I can’t hear Him. So I pray,
“Yes, God. I’m here. I’m listening. What would you have me to know today? What would you have me to do today?”
Will He answer me? Will I hear him answer me? Will I discern His voice? Lord, I want your Holy Spirit.
Because I’ve read His word, I know that if I seek Him, I will find Him, if I seek Him with all my heart. IF.
“Well, today Lord, I’m seeking you. With my whole heart. Will you to talk to me? Speak to me and tell me things I know not. Tell me what to do, if anything.”

It is the glory of God to conceal things, but the glory of kings is to search things out. (Proverbs 25:2)
…To make the word of God fully known; the mystery hidden for ages and generations but now revealed to his saints. (Colossians 1:25-26)
He reveals the deep things of darkness and brings utter darkness into the light. (Job 12:22)
Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. (Psalm 119;105)
So I wait…
