The Upper Room Devotional for 18th January 2023

The peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. – Philippians 4:7 (KJV)

Needing to find a quiet place to clear my head and find direction and peace, I had driven to one of my favorite spots. On a warm, breezy morning in southern New Jersey, I sat on a wooden bridge in the middle of the marshland, seeking an answer from God for a tough decision I had to make — a decision that could significantly affect the rest of my life. I prayed aloud, “Lord, I need peace; please speak to me.” Though I have never heard an audible voice from God, there have been times that I have had a distinct impression, or have had some evidence that I have interpreted as that “still small voice of God” (see 1 Kings 19:12).

Shortly thereafter, a seagull landed in the creek which flowed under the bridge. It just sat there, peacefully looking at me as it floated in the water. Again I asked the Lord to speak. Looking around, I said, “Oh, I see now. You are speaking. I’m just not listening!” All about me was peace. In the solitude, I sensed the Lord’s voice and felt the beginning of peace in my mind and heart.

It’s good to have a special place where we feel closest to the Lord. It is also always a good idea to pause and allow time for God to speak to us.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Lord, we know that you are always here for us. Help us make time not only to talk with you but to listen for your still small voice of comfort. Amen.
