Speak, Lord, your servant is listening.” The Bible is filled with admonitions about the importance of listening: Listen to my words…I told you, but you would not listen…Be silent, Israel, and listen…
Listening is best done in quiet. Again from the Bible: Teach me, and I will be quiet…In quietness and trust is your strength…It is good to wait quietly for the salvation of the Lord… Come with me (Jesus) by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest.
Rebecca St. James writes these words in a meaningful praise hymn:
I’ll stand in awe of you, Jesus… You are God in Heaven And here I am on earth So I’ll let my words be few Because I’m so in love with you
