In this moment, discipline your whole being to go before God in true humility, purity, and calmness. The silence will help you seek God’s will for your life this day. If you will not think more of yourself than you ought to think, not look after your own interests only, but other’s welfare too, if you prepare yourself to accept all things as God’s, then you will have a chance to benefit from what God has to tell you.
