quiet down.....

Trust in the Lord and do good.
Dwell in the land and feed on His faithfullness.
Delight yourself also in the Lord
And He shall give you the desires of your heart.

It is so important to listen to what the Lord is speaking to you as an individual.  There are alot of powerful Christians out there but you are powerful too!  Anyone who has the Holy Spirit is powerful!

Isaiah 30:15

New King James Version (NKJV)
15 For thus says the Lord God, the Holy One of Israel:
“In returning and rest you shall be saved;
In quietness and confidence shall be your strength.”
 
Over the years the Lord has quieted me down and this scripture definitely describes the work He has done in my heart.  You have to be really discerning about when the Lord wants you to share and when He wants you to quiet down.  If you are sharing your heart with others at a time when the Lord is saying to quiet down and just listen, it keeps you from hearing what He is speaking into your life.  Many times we can't hear the Lord over our own voice. 
 
Sometimes you have to quiet down in order to see what your heart's desires truly are.  If the Lord is impressing some things upon your heart right now, don't be so quick to share.  Allow the Lord to take those desires and to do what pleases Him.
