Day 19

Spend Time in Silence Before the Lord

(by Eric Roberts)

Noise wears us; silence feeds. – C.H. Spurgeon

Sometimes you are surrounded by too much noise.  Noise can separate you from a wellspring of eternal joy, excitement, and purpose.

How can silence feed you?  The deep recesses of your soul – the places where one seldom goes – need to be fed with silent inspection.  It’s in these places where the Word of God begins to speak to your life.

In silence…

  • you are healed through the cross;
  • you are transformed through the work of the Holy Spirit;
  • your heart comes alive;
  • you stand in awe of God; and
  • you are moved by the very presence of God to share the glorious cross of Jesus Christ.

If not for the silence, you could not be heard. 

Father, I will spend time in silence before You, allowing You to transform me into the image of Your Son. Use our time alone together to change me into a real voice for you – someone who will joyfully offer the wonderful news of forgiveness through Jesus Christ.
