Day 5: Five Minute Friday October Challenge: Silence
“In your unfailing love, silence my enemies; destroy all my foes, for I am your servant.” Psalm 143:12
Do you welcome times of silence or do you need background noise? I just turned off the television so I can hear the silence but it is not silent. A clicking clock, my thoughts, my breathing and of course, the birds outside. Often Jesus felt the need to get away to pray. To be silent with his Heavenly Father, in Luke 6:12 we read,
One of those days Jesus went out to a mountainside to pray, and spent the night praying to God.”
It must have been silent on that mountainside. He took his disciples with him to the Garden of Gethsemane. That night he was not silent before the Lord. He pleaded that his life be spared and while he prayed, his disciples sleep in the silence of the night. Oh, before we are hard on them, they did not have the Holy Spirit and have you ever in the silence of the day or night with nothing to do given in to sleep.
He destroyed Satan at the cross we just need to be more than conquerors through him who loves us Romans 8:37 .
Silence is Golden
Yes, I am His Servant.
Beloved, are you his servant? Will you today for five minutes sit in silence and pray?
