We live in a noisy world.
Political noise, economic noise, social noise, environmental noise, cultural noise, religious noise, medical noise, pharmaceutical noise, educational noise, fashion noise, entertainment noise, lifestyle noise, marketing noise, social media noise, news media noise, electronic noise, digital noise, food noise, fitness noise, traffic noise, work noise, family noise, emotional noise, mental noise…..noise, noise, noise.
It seems as if every facet of life has turned up its volume, getting louder and louder, vying for our attention, more and more every day.
In the midst of the noise there’s been a sound.
Did you hear it?
In the midst of the noise there’s been a rustling.
Did you sense it?
In the midst of the noise there’s been a shift.
Did you detect it?
In the midst of the noise there’s been a change.
Are you ready for it?
Father as the end draws near, help us not to let the noise of this world numb our spiritual senses. In the midst of the noise help us be sensitive to the times and seasons in which we live. In the midst of the noise help us to always be attuned to the voice of Your Spirit. In the midst of the noise help us to be ready for and obedient to whatever You require of us as your people…..in Jesus’ Name, Amen.
