Thought for the month

Pause



God’s able to speak to us at any time. But it can be so much harder for us to
hear Him, remember what He’s said and understand it when life is really busy.

In Psalm 46:10 God says ‘Be still, and know that I am God’.

When we’re still and quiet, we can hear what God’s saying to us. We give Him
space to speak and, if we do this regularly, we begin to recognise His voice
and hear so much more.

We all know life can be really busy and stopping for some quiet time with God
sometimes slips down our priority list. Despite His busyness, Jesus had His
priorities in order. Jesus would often go off by himself to a quiet place in order
to talk to God. And like Jesus, we need to do the same. When we stop for a
while, we can truly focus on God. We can block out all other distractions, calm
our minds and listen to what God is saying!
