At any given time you can walk in my house and hear the dogs barking, my sons pounding on the drums, the kitchen radio going and the girls playing. It is loud! Some days the word loud doesn't even begin to describe my house.
Yesterday I had the music player on my phone playing my favorite worship music because I just wanted to worship and hear God. Then all of the above mentioned things happened. Dogs, drums, games, kids, noise. I could hardly hear the music let alone hear God due to all the noise.
Do you have noise going on in your life blocking the voice of God?
Psalms 46:10 tells us to, "Be still and know I am God" and Hebrews 12:2 says, "Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God." Sometimes we need to find a way to block all that noise so we can be still and fix our eyes and ears on Him. For me, it was leaving the boys to their drumming, the girls to their games and the dogs to barking at the birds out the window, and going out to the deck for a few minutes.
What noise is blocking you from hearing God? What can you do to be still and fix your focus on Him to praise Him today?
