Permit God To Speak
Is it not a scandal when children over-speak their parents, or give them no honor of listening?
Why would a child refuse to hear a loving parent's call?
'The need of the world is to listen to God.' ~ Albert Einstein
And the good Lord said:
As to life and as to death - I will call.
I call into existence and snatch from existence, let all the earth be silent before Me. No petition can they make, nor can they offer Me any improvement - I cannot be added to or subtracted from. I owe mankind nothing, nor can he call Me to account.
A defenseless and culpable earth can plead no case.
Let them be silent before Me; they have no power of persuasion and no gift they can bring.
When earth is silent I will speak.
But the Lord is in His holy temple; let all the earth be silent before Him. (Habakkuk 2:20)
It is from silence I begin to appreciate my true station in life, before God and man.
In silence the covering of words is removed.
Through silence the heart cries out to Heaven for the tongue can no longer rule it.
Choosing silence in my life is the offering of God a space to speak into my life.
