Lamentations 3:25 “The LORD is good to those who wait for HIM, to the soul who seeks HIM!”
“Not thinking” at times has a jarring effect. Not that flawed are such steps but when “Silence is deafening”…
…then felt is GOD’s presence in no way compared to this earthly dimension. Instead… we’re consumed!
Overwhelmed by HIS greatness, even awestruck; so no words are shared — spoken nor heard in the mind.
Whether broken or willing, such heights of Surrender….are wonderfully met when we cherish HIS WORDS!
So study the Scriptures without Thinking’s voice most expectant to hear HIM…without any sounds!
As HIServant saying fewer words and thinking less when HE meets me while studying HIS perfect WORD,
Devotional: Psalm 27:13-14 “I believe that I shall look upon the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living! Wait for the LORD; be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for the LORD!”
My personal experience is that the voice in my head is too often just mine.
“Thinking” out loud yet still in my thoughts often overwhelms my ability to focus, to hear HIM… instead of myself.
So the Silence surrounding seems to be asking for input, sometimes insistently repeating itself till its void is filled.
But GOD! By waiting for and deeply listening without any of Thought’s clutter, then!
Then without Time table or interruption, our investments of Thought-lessness shall be rewarded!
Isaiah 30:18 “Therefore the LORD waits to be gracious to you, and therefore HE exalts HIMSELF to show mercy to you. For the LORD is a GOD of justice; blessed are all those who wait for HIM!”
“So wait!”, I say to Self most of all. “Wait in every way without sound…on your GOD!”
Amen and amen!
