Silence Can Be Golden

I was reminded of this quote by Dionysius last Wednesday evening during our development group meeting at church when our pastor talked about how to listen when the Holy Spirit is speaking to us.

If you have Jesus living in your heart, then He is most certainly speaking to you, attempting to lead you in the way you should go.

Pastor told us that sometimes we can’t hear the Holy Spirit speaking from deep within us because we are talking so much we drown Him out. Sometimes we just need to be silent.

I’d much rather hear Him than me. With one word He can solve a problem I had been working on for weeks. After telling Him about my issue (like He doesn’t know), I need to listen, not continue to whine.

Dionysius and my pastor are right.
