I wrote a song from an awesome verse in the Bible which says, “Be still”. Think about it. Everywhere people shouting, horns honking, dogs barking, TVs blasting, alarms going off, police sirens screaming, cell phones ringing. Even if you put on noise canceling headphones, the worrisome and anxious thoughts breakthrough and then they’re yelling at us.
Let’s face it. Other than the barking dogs, and shouting, etc., we live in a loud, mechanical and technological world filled with every conceivable kind of sound, noise, decibel level, and distraction, drive you crazy, potential. And the greatest designed ear plugs and head phones will not ever fully drown out the sounds, both external and internal, that flow out of this life.
But in the midst off all this, God calls us to a quiet place, a supernatural place and He speaks these words of peace into our hearts, “Be still.”
The question is, will we take a few quiet moments to hear His voice. This is so key to not only hearing this divine call, but also truly experiencing what it means to actually live, move and breathe in the stillness of God’s Presence.There is no noise on earth that can penetrate the silent beauty of His presence.

I have spoken to tens of thousands of people over these many years of ministry. I have heard from folks who have shared with me all the different methods and approaches they have tried to utilize in order to find that place of stillness, quietness, and inner peace. Sadly, however, the conclusion to all of these stories, is their admitting that it just didn’t work. A common denominator in these many stories is that it seemingly worked for “a while”, but eventually the “feeling” that they had, diminished and disappeared.
This is, and has always been, the difference between the methods, ideas, and approaches of this world, and that which flows out of the unfailing love of God for us. When it comes to a genuine, real, and lasting peace, quietness and stillness of heart, only the supernatural offer and promise of God will, not only work but last. And not just last in this life, but last forever.
“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” (John 14:27)
In this world, there is chaos, noise, confusion, and distractions at constant, sometimes ear piercing, and even heart piercing, ultra-high volume levels, but there is no noise on earth that can penetrate the silent beauty of His presence.
