... a weekly letter of encouragement.

April 19, 1993

Good Morning!

Is it possible to know God intimately amidst the bluster and clanging of our lives?

"Be still and know that I am God." (Psalm 46:10)

"My soul waits in silence for God." (Psalm 62:1)

SILENCE...A rare but necessary commodity in knowing God.

Isaiah reminded us that Christ "...will not cry out or raise His voice, nor make His voice heard in the street." (Isaiah 42:2) By our trafficked lives we could miss the quiet voice of Jesus. The Master is not accustomed to yelling at us over the noise.

Perhaps God gave us a clue about the importance of quietness by issuing us one mouth and two ears!

"Let every man be quick to hear, slow to speak, and slow to anger." (James 1:19)

The Apostle Paul instructed the Thessalonian believers to:

"Lead a quiet life"

"Attend to your own business"

"Work with your own hands"

The result? "Your conduct may win respect from those outside the Church." (I Thessalonians 4:11, 12 NAS/TCNT).

Want to know God intimately and influence your lost friends toward Christ? Then:

Slow down...Simplify your life...Listen for God...

Affect a lifestyle that becomes a person who knows God.

The world will sit up and take notice. After all, no one else is doing it.

Have a great week!
