Meyer: speaking to God

Thursday, September 10, 2015
To the LORD I cry aloud,
    and he answers me from his holy hill.
    —Psalm 3:4 (NIV)
    Cultivate the habit of speaking aloud to God. Not perhaps always, because our desires are often too sacred or deep to be put into words. But it is well to acquire the habit of speaking to God as to a present friend while sitting in the house or walking by the way. Seek the habit of talking things over with God—letters, your plans, your hopes, your mistakes, your sorrows and sins. Things look very differently when brought into the calm light of His presence.
    ... Frederick Brotherton Meyer (1847-1929), The Secret of Guidance, New York: Fleming H. Revell Co., 1896, p. 107-108 (see the book)
    See also Ps. 3:4; Deut. 30:14; Josh. 1:5; Ps. 22:22; 31:20; 52:9; 95:1; 142:1; Phil. 4:5; Jas. 4:8
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, Your light enables me to see the truth.
