THE MYSTERY OF QUIETNESS
Let a picture deformed in your mind as I quote the Psalms to you. The word is my shepherd; I shall not want he maketh me to lie down in green pastures; he leads me beside still waters; he restores my soul. Ps 23 Be still and know that I am God. Ps 46:10 Now take that picture formed in your mind and step into it for a few minutes and watch the pressure of life around you diminish. Before you leave that place in your mind and your spirit, lay down in that green pasture, take a deep breath, and let all tension, nervousness, and fears leave. This is not the power of suggestion or modern psychology; this is as old as God himself because he made it possible. God built us to have the best creative moments in our quietest places. That's why dreams can come to us while we are asleep because we are quiet at last. When someone says to you, "go to bed and sleep on it," they tell you that your most significant creative moments are coming to you very quickly. One of America's most incredible adventures, Thomas Edison, had a strange system of creative thinking. He took naps regularly in his office on his couch. He would hold a steel ball in his hand with a tin plate on the floor. As he slipped into sleep, his hand would relax, the steel ball would hit the tin plate, and he would awake. At that moment, his greatest inventions or enormous problems were solved. The experts tell us that it is in our deepest sleep that Delta level is where our creative brain kicks in. No wonder the Scriptures tell us to be still and know. There are mysteries waiting to be revealed for you if you quiet yourself before the Lord and enjoy the green pastures and the still waters. Remember, prayer is not only words; it's also quietness.
