Shut your mouth, Dave.
That’s what I felt God was speaking to me in the silence and solitude of our sanctuary during the morning worship and prayer today.
I fill my life with NOISE…
Barrage of communication and media
Zip your mouth!
In any relationship we need to just zip our mouths shut and listen to the other person. It adds value to that person. It allows us to be in a reciprocal relationship.
Same goes with God our Father.
“When you pray, don’t be like the hypocrites who love to pray publicly on street corners and in the synagogues where everyone can see them. I tell you the truth, that is all the reward they will ever get. 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. “When you pray, don’t babble on and on as people of other religions do. They think their prayers are answered merely by repeating their words again and again. Don’t be like them, for your Father knows exactly what you need even before you ask him!” (Matthew 6:5-8 NLT)
Speaks for itself doesn’t it?
Shut your mouth… and listen…
What’s he saying?
