Stop. Rest. Listen…
(Listen to my song “Turn Off the Noise” by clicking HERE)
In those days he departed to the mountain to pray, and he spent the night in prayer to God. When day came, he called his disciples to himself, and from them he chose Twelve, whom he also named apostles.
Notice how Jesus went off to a quiet place and spent an entire night in prayer to God before making a big decision about picking apostles.
Given that he also instructed his followers to pray by going to your inner room and then to not babble using many words (Matthew 6:6-7)…it would seem that Jesus spent most of his prayer in silent listening.
He needed to remove all distractions so he could listen to the voice of God.
Are you following Jesus’ example?
When it comes to making big decisions…or in times of struggles when you aren’t sure what to do…are you finding a quiet place to commune with your Maker?
Try setting aside 10 to 20 minutes regularly for quiet meditation.
Simply let go of your thoughts.
Allow your mind to rest from its constant judgments and commentaries.
It may be difficult, frustrating and seemingly pointless at first…but with practice you will be amazed at how your life will change for the better…and how your inner peace will grow.
