    My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me. I give them eternal life, and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of My hand. My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all, and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father's hand. John 10:27 ESVThe star ...

The Gentle Whisper

  • He said, 'Go out, and stand on the mountain before Yahweh.' Behold, Yahweh passed by, and a great and strong wind tore the mountains, and broke in pieces the rocks before Yahweh; but Yahweh was not in the wind. After the wind there was an earthquake; but Yahweh was not in the earthquake. After the earthquake a fire passed; but Yahweh was not in the fire. After the fire, there was a still small voice. When Elijah heard it, he wrapped his face in his mantle, went out, and stood in the entrance of the cave. Behold, a voice came to him, and said, 'What are you doing here, Elijah?' 1Kings 19:11 WEB

    Elijah was a seasoned prophet that knew the voice of God. When he was told to go and stand before God on the mountain, Elijah remained inside the cave until he knew that the Lord was there.

    Elijah ignored the tornado or strong wind that came by. He ignored the earthquake that shook the mountains. He ignored the fire that passed by. Finally, he heard the sound of a low whisper, and He knew that it was indeed God Almighty speaking. Elijah arose and went out to meet Him.

    The still small voice was a gentle whisper. The soft voice of God that speaks to your conscience and illuminates your mind. We are meant to hear His voice, created to hear His voice. That was His original plan, that each person listened to the Voice of God and obeyed, but in Exodus 20:19 the people were afraid and said: 'Do not let God speak to us, let Him speak to you.'

    Jesus said: 'My sheep hear My voice' (John 10:27). Hearing the gentle whisper yourself changes things and will give you an edge that no one can take away.

    Often when the Lord speaks to us, it is easily drowned out by our busy lives and He does not shout over the noise. I find that I have to get quiet so that I can listen. This includes an inner calmness, a place of rest, so that you can hear Him. A quiet room is nice, but if your life is in turmoil, there will still be noise in your head. I have been there and done that. You will have to fix what is wrong.

    Many times we are looking for the supernatural, but His word often comes to us in such a natural way that we miss it. We expect a booming voice from God, but instead we hear the words of a mentor, or a friend, or a song comes to our mind. Maybe something they once told us in the past.

    That is the Holy Spirit whispering to you. Jesus said: 'But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things, and will remind you of all that I said to you' (John 14:26). The reminding of past things spoken to us is some of the work of the Holy Spirit, the breath of God.

    Listen for the voice of the Lord always and try to be sensitive to the Spirit. That gentle whisper will make all the difference and can turn disaster and terror, into peace and joy.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father please teach me to hear Your voice and to recognize when You are speaking. Help me make the right decisions and guide my steps today. Speak to me and through me Lord, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

Prayer: Heavenly Father please teach me to hear Your voice and to recognize when You are speaking. Help me make the right decisions and guide my steps today. Speak to me and through me Lord, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray. I hear that still quiet voice everytime I see my heart blessings, reminding me God is always near <3 I have always believed that when I can't quiet my mind I need to come to God just as I am so he can help fix me and quite my chaos. I would like to thank you Pastor, Sylvia, Linda, Jim, and anyone else praying for our situation. With your help in prayers, the Lord has hepled to calm my anxiety some and I am trying to rest more in his love to not focus on the things I can't control. But I do hear his calming quiet voice telling me to just rest patiently and he will make things right....so I wait <3

Amen it is so important to ask every morning that the Holy Spirit leads us throughout the day, that every thought, word and deed is in alignment with the Holy Spirit, Then as we go about our daily business we often hear that still small voice directing us through the day. What a joy there is in the hearing, but a far greater joy in the obedience.

Thank You Lord for the times You have spoken to me thru Your Holy Spirit.  Always what I needed to....very desperately at times needed to hear.  You are a giver of good gifts, of timely scriptures lit with Them.  Urging me to do something.  May You Holy Spirit of God continue on for me to hear.  Thank You for being there even when you are silent.  Amen

Thank you Pastor Dion for you daily devotion. I need to find more quiet time so I can hear the low whisper. I always have one of those noise machines on so it's not always so quiet. I listen to a runnning brook. I'll have to turn it off and have quiet. Amen :-)
