Find some peace

'I have stilled and quieted my soul' PSALM 131:2

If you're the kind of person you doesn't go anywhere without white head phones sprouting out of your ears or can't work without the TV on in "the background", then you might be surprised to hear that the bible is packed with people pursuing peace and quiet:

'The fruit of righteousness will be peace; the effect of righteousness will be quietness and confidence forever' (Isaiah 32:17 NIV) 'Better one handful with tranquility than two handfuls with toil and chasing after the wind' (Ecclesiastes 4:6 NIV). 'Make it your ambition to lead a quiet life, to mind your own business...' (1Thessalonians 4:11 NIV). 'Be still, and know that I am God...' (Psalm 46:10 NIV).

You can't live a continually noisy life and expect to walk in peace. Jesus made sure He had seasons of peace and time alone. Nobody had a greater life's purpose or more demands placed upon Him than He did. Yet the Bible says, He '...often withdrew to lonely places and prayed' (Luke 5:16 NIV). Surely if Jesus needed this type of lifestyle, you do too. Spending quiet time with God is essential to restoring your body, your mind and your emotions. The truth is, you need it regularly, so insist on having it and don't let anyone take it from you. Work your diary around God; don't try to work God in around your diary.
