‘I wait quietly before God …. I wait quietly before God, for my hope is in Him.’ Psalm 62:1, 5
When we in our littleness and God in His glory meet, we all understand that what God says has infinitely more worth than what a person says. And yet our prayer so often consists of what we need that we give God no time to speak to us.
It’s a great lesson to learn that to be silent before God is the secret of true adoration. It is only as the soul bows itself before Him in honor and reverence that the heart will be opened to receive the divine impression of the nearness of God and of the working of His power.
Such worship of God is the surest way to give Him the glory that is due Him. It will lead to a blessedness that can only be found in quiet prayer. Do not think that it is time lost. Do not abandon it if at first it appears difficult or fruitless. Be assured that it brings you into the right relationship with God. It opens the way to fellowship with Him. It leads to the blessed assurance that He is looking on you in tender love and working in you with a divine power. As you become more accustomed to it, you will experience His presence abiding with you all day long, and people will begin to sense that you have been with God.
