Today I will discipline myself to pay attention to God when I am in darkness. I will wait quietly and patiently for His word and not distract myself by frantically seeking answers on my own. “Song birds are taught to sing in the dark, and we are put into the shadow of God’s hand until we learn to hear Him .” Chambers From My Utmost for His Highest Classic Edition, February 14. The discipline of waiting and listening in darkness is not for me only, but to be shouted to others.

Matthew 10:27

What I tell you in darkness you must speak in the daylight, and what is whispered in your ear you must shout from the housetops.

International Standard Version

Today I will go to God’s altar in darkness that I may hear His word.
