It dawned to me then, that God has always been the author of peace, He fashioned the nature to carry His peace and calmness amidst the busy strenuous lifestyle we so often find ourselves in. When we find ourselves enveloped in the solitude of nature, that is also when we could hear God with clarity and receive His comforting peace. God spoke to Moses from the burning bush at Horeb- the mountain of God (Exodus 3), God brought Abraham out to see the stars to count his descendants to be (Genesis 15: 5)and Jesus went to the mountainside to pray and spent the night praying to God (Luke 6:12-13).
Are you in need of peace to refresh your soul? God has provided it ever so abundantly outside of our door steps and are you struggling to hear from Him? Learn from Jesus and withdrew from the crowd. For us, it could simply mean to withdraw from the crowd our modern life, modern technologies and embrace the peacefulness of nature that He has provided. Quiet your soul then and that very still small voice, you will eventually hear. Don’t let the clutters of life’s demands silence the voice of God within you and robs you of your inner peace.
Psalm 29: 11 NLT
The LORD gives his people strength. The LORD blesses them with peace.
