Strength in silence

Jesus gave him no answer. Luke 23:9

There is mayhem all around. The crowds are shouting. Pilate is accusing. The disciples are hiding. In the midst of all this Jesus stands silent and in control. All the power and strength is flowing from Him. I’ve just returned from Spain where there is noise and bustle. We live in a noisier world than ever before. Yet by prayer to our all-powerful God , we can find strength and power.
