Sometimes our lives can be so loud that it becomes difficult to hear God. But when we quiet ourselves before the Lord, the sounds in the silence can change our lives.
Not long ago, I had an ear infection and a hearing test was part of standard procedures. The doctor tested my hearing by placing me in a completely quiet room, putting headphones on my ears, and telling me to raise my hand whenever I heard a beep. Perfect hearing would mean every single beep was heard, even the most quiet. It occurred to me that we must train ourselves in a similar way to hear the voice of God.
