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.
