A Listening Life
We tend to think of prayer as us doing the talking and God doing the listening, but prayer is just as much about us listening and allowing ourselves to hear from God. God speaks through everything He has created, He may speak through those around us, and He always speaks through the indwelling presence of His Spirit and the Truth of His Word. David knew this very well and He often spent time simply reflecting on God and His Word, and as David listened he was reminded of the love, the kindness, the compassion, the forgiveness and the faithfulness of God. We need to take time to simply 'Be still and know that God is God' and it is He who has made us. He is our Good Shepherd.
