DAILY READINGS: Joshua 10:1-43; Isaiah 7:1-8:4; Luke 23:47-24:12

Truly my soul waiteth upon God: from him cometh my salvation. Psalm 62:1

Our world is filled with “noise and haste,” with faster, bigger, further, and more. The Lover of our souls, however, invites us to linger to listen, to ruminate at leisure, tasting His words of life, dallying over choice
words, in silence hearing God’s thoughts clearly—and the world’s lies accurately. The Psalmist can hear “the footsteps of coming deliverance” (Spurgeon) because he has learned to be silent, preferring God’s words
and thoughts to his own. Tarry long today; be loath to leave; relish His presence; hear His footsteps. —M. MacMullen

Listen to the music of nature, floating from the birds in the sky,
Singing the song of their Maker, Lifting His praises on high. —Ron Hamilton
