The quiet heart can be a heart that hears the Lord…for He speaks in “a still, small voice.”
Any other kind of heart has a hard time hearing the Lord.
Things that make a lot of noise in the heart include:
- fear, worry, anxiety, fretting
- envy, jealousy, resentment
- strife, arguments
You get rid of these kinds of things by remembering that…
…He cares for you.
– 1 Peter 5:7
But you have to let a thought like that from Him sink deeply into your heart in order to overcome and drive away the other toxic thoughts. So…do whatever it takes to let it sink in deeply.
