I included the NLT version of the scripture on the photo but I also like how the Message paraphrases it.
But I’m deaf and mute to it all,
ears shut, mouth shut.
I don’t hear a word they say,
don’t speak a word in response.
What I do, God, is wait for you,
wait for my Lord, my God—you will answer! Psalms 38:13-15
There are times in life when it’s necessary to turn a deaf ear to enemies taunting. And, when I can’t think of any scriptures to quote or lack something positive to say, it’s best that I choose silence instead.
Oh and what about the times that you’re praying for someone’s salvation and everything you see and hear from them is contrary to your prayers. That’s a good time to make a decision to not be moved by the happenings around you.
