Watch God move in silence

blog - dockA busy weekend is upon us, which has me thinking about Sabbath.

And silence.

Many of us don’t know what to do with our silences. And yet this is when God does some of his deepest work. His silence does not mean his absence. Delay does not mean impotence. Every lull does not require activity. Every vacuum does not need to be filled with words. Take it from an extrovert; excessive words are not a strength, but a liability. God moves more in our weakness than our strength, so let him do his thing.

Be still and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!” (Psalm 46:10)

Are you in a valley? Maybe you need to stop fighting it and start dancing with it. Carve out enough breathing room, shut out enough distractions, and watch God move in silence. Discipline your soul to engage in solitude. You just might be surprised at what you discover.
