Habakkuk 2:20 
“The Lord is in his holy temple; let all the earth be silent before him.” (NIV)

“But oh! God is in his holy Temple! Quiet everyone—a holy silence. Listen!” (MSG)

God is worth waiting for. His words are worth hearing and obeying. The best way to wait for him is with attentive silence and calm stillness. 

Live with a bias for action, yes. Live with a bias for hearing and obeying God before taking action, amen.

A settled heart full of expectation and anticipation is more likely to hear God’s will and to know God’s ways. 

True worship is more often experienced and expressed in moments of solitude and silence than in rhythmic bouncing to drums and guitars. The key words to the previous sentence are “more often.” 

Personal and private worship seldom mirrors Sunday morning praise by gathered believers. Instead, it prepares us for collective praise and adoration. It empowers congregational expressions of love for God. 

Cultivate more silence in God’s presence. Esteem more highly the practice of stillness and anticipation. Trust God to speak. Acknowledge it when he does. Do what he says. Join him in building a better world. 

Are you listening? Really listening?

I will be still and silent and wait for God.

Our Father, I will be still and silent and wait for you today, tomorrow, and as a daily habit. Give me ears to hear what you are saying. Give me a willing and obedient heart to do what you say. Empower the work of my hands, direct my steps, place your thoughts in my mind, and your words in my mouth. Amen.

Daily D – Psalm 57:2

Daily D – Psalm 56:3

Psalm 56:3 When I am afraid, I will trust in you.

Daily D – Deuteronomy 8:12-18

Deuteronomy 8:12-18 When you eat and are full, and build beautiful houses to live in, and your herds and flocks grow large, and your silver and gold multiply, and everything else you have increases, be careful that your heart doesn’t become proud and you forget the Lord your God who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the place of slavery. He led you through the great and terrible wilderness with its poisonous snakes and scorpions, a thirsty land where there was no water. He brought water out of the flint rock for you. He fed you in the wilderness with manna, which your ancestors had not known, in order to humble and test you, so that in the end he might cause you to prosper. You may say to yourself, ‘My power and my own ability have gained this wealth for me,’ but remember that the Lord your God gives you the power to gain wealth, in order to confirm his covenant he swore to your ancestors, as it is today.

Daily D – Deuteronomy 6:4-9

Deuteronomy 6:4-9 “Listen, Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength. These words that I am giving you today are to be in your heart. Repeat them to your children. Talk about them when you sit in your house and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Bind them as a sign on your hand and let them be a symbol on your forehead. Write them on the doorposts of your house and on your city gates.“
