Silence in Community… If our desire is to be ever filled with God’s Spirit, then yes we need to be silent in prayer. I believe I am learning that if a community of follower’s of Jesus want to see manifestations of God’s Power (vision, special knowledge, discernment, wisdom, prophetic, healing, etc.), then we need to rely on God. I believe relying on God is easy to say, but not often accomplished. Silence seems to be a key ingredient to being dependant on God. I could argue there is no more beautiful show of faith then to wait upon the Lord with anticipation. The question is are we expectant in our silence or are we just silent? Do we expect to hear from God in our silence? Will we act on what we hear? Sounds like a fun journey to me!
