God’s Whisper In our Stillness

That night the LORD appeared to [Isaac). GENESIS 26:24

That night, Isaac arrived in Beersheba. Was this revelation a coincidence? Was its timing accidental? Could it have occurred on any other night? If you think so, you are gravely mistaken. Why did Isaac receive the revelation on the night he reached Beersheba? Because it was the night he finally found rest. In his former land, he had been tormented by a series of petty quarrels over insignificant wells.

Little worries can be a big burden, especially when many of them exist. Even though the conflict was over, Isaac had bad memories of the place. He decided to leave and change his surroundings. He set up his tent far away from the place of his troubles. That night, something amazing happened. God spoke to him. God couldn’t speak to Isaac when his mind was troubled. God’s voice needs a calm soul to be heard. Only when Isaac’s spirit was quiet, could he hear God. That quiet night became a special and memorable one for him.

Why does God need quietness in our soul to speak to us? When we look at the Bible, we see that Jesus often prayed at night or early in the morning. Many important revelations happened at night or when people were in peaceful places. For example, John received the Book of Revelation when he was on the island of Patmos. Why is this? Perhaps nighttime is the ideal time for us to hear God’s whispers, as we are less distracted by worries, relationship squabbles, or the noise of the television. Psalm 16:7 states, “I will praise the Lord, who counsels me; even at night, my heart instructs me.” Similarly, Psalm 46:10 says, “Be still and know that I am God.”

When our minds are quiet, we are more open to hearing God’s voice. We are less distracted by our thoughts and feelings, and we can better focus on what God is trying to say to us. So, if you want to hear from God, find a quiet place where you can be alone with your thoughts. Pray and ask God to speak to you. Then, listen carefully to His voice.

In times of great distress, it can be hard to hear the answers to our prayers. Sometimes, the answers don’t come right away. Our hearts may not hear a reply when we’re in the middle of our pain. But once we stop crying, once things get quiet, and once we stop trying to force our way through the hard times, and once we start caring about others, that’s when the answer we’ve been waiting for finally appears.

God says, Soul, you need to rest to get what your heart truly wants. Don’t worry so much about taking care of yourself. Give your problems to God. He understands what you’re going through. Then, in the night, God will come to you. You’ll see a rainbow over the flood of your troubles. And in your quiet, you’ll hear beautiful music that will never end.

My daily bread inspired this passage, and I thought it would be beneficial for the world to know.
