The greatest healing works, the greatest works of restoration and reformation, the greatest works of spiritual power are accomplished when there is neither word nor thought, when there is a complete stillness. Then something, the revelation of the Spirit and Its power, takes place within.
In that complete absence of self, when there is only an inner peace, an expectance, there comes that little jump, that little deep breath, that little gasp, that little release. That is when we know the Spirit is on the field and the work is being accomplished.
It is an upsurge from within, a Presence and a Power that reveals Itself in stillness, in quietness, and in calmness, that does the work.
The kingdom of God is within us, and It utters Itself. It may utter Itself in speech; It may utter Itself as a light; It may utter itself merely as an inner glow. But when It does, something happens.
All the Father has will be released through the “still small voice.”

And a woman having an issue of blood twelve years, which had spent all her living upon physicians, neither could be healed of any, Came behind him, and touched the border of his garment: and immediately her issue of blood stanched.
And Jesus said, Who touched me? When all denied, Peter and they that were with him said, Master, the multitude throng thee and press thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me?
And Jesus said, Somebody hath touched me:
for I perceive that virtue is gone out of me.
And when the woman saw that she was not hid, she came trembling, and falling down before him, she declared unto him before all the people for what cause she had touched him, and how she was healed immediately.
And he said unto her,
Daughter, be of good comfort:
thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace.
