The Power of Silence

“Set a guard, O Lord, over my mouth; keep watch over the door of my lips!”
Psalm 141:3
 
Have you ever noticed that “listen” and “silent” are formed with the same letters? Silence isn’t empty, it can be full of answers.
 
“Be still and know that I am God.” (Psalm 46:10)
 
The ability to be still is best learned in silence.
 
Someone once said, “Silence is a source of great strength.”
 
Albert Einstein once said, “I think 99 times and I find nothing. I stop thinking, swim in silence, and the truth comes to me.”
 
Another person once said, “Silence is the language of God, all else is poor translation.” And you know what? I think he got it right.
 
Psalm 62:5 says, “For God alone, O my soul, wait in silence, for my hope is from Him.”
 
Let go of all the unnecessary noise in your life and all the meaningless pitter-patter. Learn to wait and to be still in silence. For the Lord is a tender, loving Father, and He often speaks in the silence. Learn to be quietly submissive to His voice in your life.
