Psalms 51:6 Surely you desire truth in the inner parts; you teach me wisdom in the inmost place. (The Holy Bible, New International Version)

This is part of a prayer from the psalmist to God. In it the psalmist recognizes his sinfulness and God’s power and compassion to forgive. He recognizes God is truth and wisdom and the only way to hear truth and get wisdom is to listen deep within ourselves. When we receive God’s Son, Jesus, as our Redeemer, Lord and Savior we also receive the gift of God’s Holy Spirit. It is this Spirit Who convicts us of our sin, reveals God’s truth and give us God’s wisdom. Our question is are we willing to be quiet and listen? Being quiet is something which needs to be practiced. It is difficult to shut out all the interfering thoughts without blanking our minds so much we can’t even hear God. Let us learn to take time each day to tune out the world and tune in God through His Holy Spirit.
