There will always be too many things that need to be done. Before we plunge into action, we need to stop and listen to the Voice that speaks with the perspective of eternity. Jesus faced tremendous demands from those around Him, but He took the time to get alone and listen to the voice of His Abba Father. He knew that it was the one thing that is needful. It is often the hardest thing in the world, dragging my eyes off my to-do list and getting quiet before Him, but it is always, always worth it. He alone has the words of life and it is His delight to speak them to a listening heart.
Luke 10:41-42, John 6:68
Lord, please give us a heart to hear you.
