The noise is too great,
His voice is too quiet.
I dream of “God moving”,
but in my own definition.
I act like God isn’t speaking,
but it is the noise that is on high volume.
God won’t shout above the noise.
He will wait patiently for me to turn it down.
The most intense battle is often the battle to GET to prayer. Once we are in prayer we don’t have much trouble.
When I was at the prayer retreat this week, I had no trouble praying, quite honestly. When I go away for a silent retreat, I honestly don’t have much of a struggle.
It’s getting to the place of prayer. We need to understand the schemes of the enemy. He knows the danger of prayer. He creates the distractions. He keeps us busy. When we find the place of prayer, we find that God really is speaking.
Battle FOR the place of prayer. When you get there, you find God.
