The importance of quietness.
“I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me… My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one can snatch them out of my hand.” -JOHN 10:14, 27–28
How busy is your life? Hustle n bustle tends to dampen our ability to hear his voice. When the sheep are all penned up in the cave all kinds of shepherds come to the door calling sheep. The false shepherds of the world call out but we must learn to know his voice n hear when he calls us by name. Sheep learn to sense the presence n movement of their shepherd so well that as his shadow passes over the mouth of the cave they perk up their ears ne eyes attentive to the great shepherds voice. We can learn to be sensitive to his voice. It begins in the quietness of our lives.
Take time to be quiet n listen for the voice of God. Then as u learn to distinguish his voice thru his word n his spirit u can learn to carry that quietness around with u inspire of the bustle of life around u. And in that innermost quietness of ur soul he will speak n u will hear no matter the storms that rage around u.
