Pusey: in stillness

Friday, October 23, 2015
Let them know that you, whose name is the LORD—
    that you alone are the Most High over all the earth.
    —Psalm 83:18 (NIV)
    Yes! blessed are those holy hours, in which the soul retires from the world, to be alone with God. God’s Voice, as Himself, is every where. Within and without He speaks to our souls, if we would hear. Only the din of the world or the tumult of our own hearts, deafens our inward ear to it... Learn to commune with Him in stillness, and He Whom thou hast sought in stillness, will be with thee when thou goest abroad.
    ... Edward B. Pusey (1800-1882), Sermons during the season from Advent to Whitsuntide, Oxford: John Henry Parker, 1848, p. 193,201 (see the book)
    See also Ps. 19:1-2; 46:10; 83:18; Hos. 2:14; Hab. 2:20; Zech. 2:13; John 11:28
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, still my inner voice that I may perceive You.
