The Creator's Nature is Gentle

God’s nature as we know it, attracts every soul not just because He is our Creator, but also because even a soul that hasn’t discovered Him can find him in a meditative state – that quiet moment and environment with your deepest thought to discover anything. There is a nature we are yet to adopt from the Spirit of God: these attributes are in us, but lack balance to yield its effectiveness in our lives. Psalms 46:10 says “…be still and know that I am God.” Only a calm and vigilant soul will hear when the Spirit of God speaks, because our means of communicating with the Spirit of God is divine, graceful, honourable, humble, and is cloaked in integrity. A lousy soul cannot commune with the Spirit of God: because when you are joined with Him, you would have all the characters of the Spirit of God active in you.
Galatians 5:22-23 KJV.
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,  [23] Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

James 3:17 KJV.
But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.

These qualities are developed in the heart of someone that lives and worships in spirit and in truth. Never has it been recorded that in the multitude of noise and restlessness [created environmentally and by mental instability] one would hear God speak. The mind will have to be in balance, with an added advantage of a quiet environment, because to seek a king’s counsel, you must first have order to receive effective counselling. To effectively connect with the divine spirit, is to enter into total inward and outward silence; speaking to and with God.
How can you achieve, when you are not still, neither do you have the fruit of the Spirit active in your life? In our world today, there are too many distractions; distractions that take one’s mind from that which is beneficial to the soul. The devil clouds us with life distractions, but The mind undertakes one process at a time ,if concentration is really demanded. A still mind in total silence has a better chance to listen and communicate with God, because one of the fruit of the Spirit is gentleness. Most of us are yet to observe that quiet state of mind, or get a quiet environment for sober reflection, to listen to God.
 1 Peter 5:8 KJV.
Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:

A reckless, carnal mind has no chance in being vigilant, because he/she is too busy acting reckless. When you reflect on God you would  have no time to milk pain, depression , anxiety, failures, or the imperfection of this present world.

Matthew 11:28-30 KJV.
Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. [29] Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. [30] For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. 

Jesus Christ was constantly connected with the Father, but when it came to serious matters, He would go privately, in a solitary and quite place to speak with God; away from the distractions of the world; communicating and working in meekness (gentleness).
There is a gift of the Spirit which we must all yearn for. A true Christian is a gentleman or woman. There is a certain tenderness about their attitude, which convey itself powerfully in their relating to things around them. They act with discipline and balance. Dissociate yourself from the world’s noise and business, then in it you would find peace within. Oftentimes, we see many shouting at the top of their voices some individuals do this as a means of communicating to God – the God who created all the organs in the body; the ears, mouth, tongue and sees the heart before words are spoken.
Matthew 6:6 KJV
But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet,  and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.

Shouting endlessly and repeating words does not qualify your prayers or words to be heard by God. Matthew 6:6-8.

Matthew 6:7-8 KJV
But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. [8] Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.

Saying your amen countless times does not change anything and has no benefit from the person that said it once etc. We worship the God of the universe so we ought to reason and act like we know God knows all things seen and unknown.God has called us to an everlasting relationship;we must take His nature to fully relate with Him.

James 3:11-15 KJV
Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and bitter? [12] Can the fig tree, my brethren, bear olive berries? either a vine, figs? so can no fountain both yield salt water and fresh. [13] Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? let him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom. [14] But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth. [15] This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish.
