"And when Jesus came to the ruler's house and saw the flute players and the crowd making a commotion, he said, "Go away, for the girl is not dead but sleeping." And they laughed at him. But when the crowd had been put outside, he went in and took her by the hand, and the girl arose." Matthew 9:23-25 ESV
I think so many times in our lives we get caught up in the "noise". You know, the things that drown out the presence of Jesus, the words of Jesus. We can't see reality because all we hear is noise. And, we certainly can't hear the words of Jesus!
Our "noises" may be work, hobbies, gossip, relationships, internet, TV and more. They are the things that get our attention. They are the things that get our time. They are the things that get our eyes off of Jesus!
So often we are in need of hearing from Jesus. So often we are begging for that one miracle that could change our lives. We just want to experience Jesus!
All we have to do is put out the noise! Put out the things that are crowding out Jesus in our lives! That's when He will have the room, the chance to make that simple touch that restores life! That's when He has the chance to speak into our lives. (Leaders: this is crucial for your to be a healthy and centered leader!)
What is it that you need to do today to cut out the noise in your life?
