How to Get Quiet [Psalm 32:8 Daily Devotional]

“I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you.”

Psalm 32:8

While this verse is a record of God speaking to the writer of this psalm, this truth remains even in our new covenant churches. When we’re feeling confused and uncertain about what’s next, we can know that God will be there to instruct us in how we should move forward. He may not do it through an audible voice, but he is faithful to nudge us in the right direction.

How to Get Quiet

So, what do you do when you’re feeling confused? It takes some discipline, but my encouragement to you is to get into a quiet place. God is able to speak to you at any time, but you’ll be more inclined to hear him or feel his nudges. I guarantee that this psalm was written in a quiet place, and the psalmist can write this confidently because it happened to them.

I typically start my mornings with 3 minutes of quiet time, a quick devotional, and then 5 more minutes in silence. No, I’ve never heard the audible voice of God, but I leave that time with a clear mind ready to take on the day.


Jesus, thank you for always nudging me in the right direction. Help me to take time and get quiet to just listen to you. When life is busy and I’m hit from all sides, I ask that you instruct me with your loving eye. It’s in your name I pray, amen.
