"After a fire came a gentle whisper. When Elijah heard it he pulled his cloak over his face and went out and stood at the mouth of the cave. Then a voice said to him, What are you doing here, Elijah?" 1st Kings 19:12-13
Did you see that? God was in the whisper. Not just a whisper but a gentle whisper. God is gentle.
Don't you wish sometimes God would send down huge bright neon lights and yell at the top of His holy lungs His plans for us. Don't you wish there were flashing arrows at every turn and a road map for us just for that extra protection? Well there is a road map ~ His Word the Bible but God doesn't have to yell. He shouldn't have to, we should have our ear turned to Him at all times, praying and listening for instruction.
Strength and power are not always found in the dramatic and sensational. There's great power in the whisper. We're supposed to imitate God and be gentle in spirit, quiet and humble so we can hear Him and His instruction. I'm not quiet or gentle but I want to learn how to be, I will do whatever it takes to become gentle like my Father.
Lord help me quiet my spirit, help me be gentle
so that I may always hear your whisper. I love you Daddy.
