Quiet time: It is as important to the maintenance of life as food and water… maybe more so. Of course food and water are essential for physical life, but physical life is not eternal; spiritual life is eternal.
“Today, if you hear his voice,
do not harden your hearts.
We are not likely to hear His voice if we don’t take some quiet time for contemplation and prayer, but even if we do we will be more likely to harden our hearts to it; we’re busy people running to and fro after all. A time of quiet contemplation helps us to focus on what is really important, on what is eternal.
Yes, take some time for quiet and keep your heart open to His leading; everything else will start to clear up when you do, and your walk will be closer to our Lord.
