Apostle Grace Lubega
1 Peter 3:3-4 (KJV); Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel; But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price.
God values a meek and quiet spirit. In our theme scripture, the Bible reveals that it is of great price in His sight.
Some Christians’ spirits are very loud and restless. The signs of this can easily be seen when they pray. It is often the case that such people’s minds wander the moment they start to pray.
In prayer, their minds scuttle from one thing to the next: who annoyed them last evening; why did Brother John or Sister Mary ignore their text message; why they suddenly feel hungry; when was the last time they changed their engine oil?!
God values a quiet spirit because it is positioned to listen to Him. Loud spirits miss instructions in prayer because they neglect the point of focus: God.
Loud spirits do not watch in prayer because they cannot tune long enough to the frequency of the Spirit of God. Learn to quiet your spirit.

GOLDEN NUGGET: God values a quiet spirit because it is positioned to listen to Him. Loud spirits miss instructions in prayer because they neglect the point of focus: God.
PRAYER: My Father, I thank You for this wisdom. You teach me to quiet my spirit so I can hear You. I exercise myself in this truth and as I do, Your voice becomes more distinctive and clear, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
