Fenelon: be silent

Monday, August 17, 2015
“But the LORD is in his holy temple;
    let all the earth be silent before him.”
    —Habakkuk 2:20 (NIV)
    How can you expect God to speak in that gentle and inward voice which melts the soul, when you are making so much noise with your rapid reflections? Be silent, and God will speak again.
    ... François Fénelon (1651-1715), Selections from Fénelon, ed. Mary Wilder Tileston, Boston: Roberts Bros., 1879, p. 38 (see the book)
    See also Hab. 2:20; Ps. 46:10; 85:8; Zech. 2:13; Heb. 12:25
Quiet time reflection:
    Speak, Lord; Your people are listening.
