“Oh, that you would be silent, and it would be your wisdom!” (Job 13:5)

Today, we are going to examine the word “silent” and how it relates to the practical and biblical principles for “Spiritual” growth. In essence, “silent” is the state of absence from sound or inefficient speech. Silent is further defined as having no effect, not operating, virtue less, and dead; Free from sound or noise; Absolutely still; Perfectly quiet; Speechless; Mute; Indisposed to talk; At rest; and A time of silence. Silence is to compel to silence; To cause to be still; To hush. In the business world, it is called “silence” a key leadership ability in building trust, confidence in relationships, leveraging power, discernment, wisdom, and self-discipline. To be “silent” is a direct connection between “silence” in the ability to act intelligently without violating sovereignty in building relationships, partnerships, and human sustainability to make an effective impact globally. However, “silent” or “silence” is often used as an inferiority weapon or misused in showing one’s strength, control, or power amongst people.

In the context of the scripture, Job, a blameless, upright, intelligent man, with Godly wisdom, wrote to instruct leadership and all people the importance to discipline oneself, think before speaking, reacting; knowing at times to be silent is wisdom, when words are unwholesome and the very act deprives life or speaks death. For instance, personally, I call this “Tame-The-Tongue-And-The-Mind.” It is the ability to value relationships, practice, discipline, listen, and give thought to the outcome before responding. It is an in-depth ability to know “silent” or “silence” deals with a person’s ability and mentality to act with meekness, kindness, compassion, and humility. Thought to ponder: “Silent” is a stillness of one’s soul igniting the worth, validity, and invisible to visible. At this level, it unveils a person “true” form, that being the substance of a person, distinct character, and the ability to perfect for the greater of humanity.
