Matthew 6.6 But when you pray, go away by yourself, shut the door behind you, and pray to your Father in private. Then your Father, who sees everything, will reward you.
I have often said and believe that this passage means to me to go to the secret place close the door and leave all of your crap outside. No distractions…. Crawl up in your Daddy’s lap and just listen and let Him hold you. Don’t say a word. If you are talking you cannot hear. A friend told me this below today and I believe it is the formula for hearing the Lord.
Pursuing God’s voice
1. Silence your body to hear your words
2. Silence your words to hear your thoughts
3. Silence your thoughts to hear your heart
4. Silence your heart to hear your spirit
5. Silence your spirit to hear God’s voice
It is all about pursuing Silence.
Right now I am having the hardest time hearing I have so much going on in my mind. I have actually had to take Tylenol pm to sleep on a few nights. I am leaving to go on Quest next Tuesday and right at this moment my heart does not feel prepared. I know once I get on the bus I will be better. Right now I just can’t shake that feeling. Please pray for me.
Thank you Lord for the RAIN!
