“God is always speaking. “there is no speech or language/where [his] voice is not heard” (Ps. 19:3). But we’re not always listening. We don’t make the effort and so fail to go boldly into his throne room to receive what we need:  a word that can pierce, and cut, and heal.

Here’s the paradox: If we don’t listen, we never enter his rest. Yet if we don’t enter his rest, we never listen.”

~Mark Buchanan, The Rest of God

May you allow yourself the luxury of waiting and listening and taking a deep breath of doing a lot nothing. Lean into the stillness and remember what His voice sounds like. He hovers over you in the hush, delights in your heart hallowing his holiness, and rejoices in your awareness of the realness of His presence. Are you listening?

God is always speaking.
