Answer me when I call, O God of my righteousness! You have relieved me in my distress; Be gracious to me and hear my prayer.
So many voices calling for your time and attention. each one with their own agenda, request, need, question, demand. As a Christian we must learn to discern the voice of truth from all the other voices calling to us.
Sometimes God simply wants to hear you speak to Him but there are those times He is trying to communicate an answer to you. Listen can you hear His voice above the maddening self absorbed crowd? Be still, you will hear it.
