I’ve been talking about how God is speaking in a still, small voice. So, what is the “still, small voice” to YOU? It’s more about thoughts than about an audible voice. Instead of waiting for the perfect conditions to talk with God, we need to remember that we can stand before Him anytime, anywhere. He meets us when we ask Him to. In essence, it’s less important how God speaks to us than what we do with what He says. God speaks most clearly to us in this day through His Word. The more we learn it, the more ready we will be to recognize His voice when He speaks, and the more likely we are to obey what we hear.
1 Kings 19:11-12 (NIV)
11 The Lord said, “Go out and stand on the mountain in the presence of the Lord, for the Lord is about to pass by.” Then a great and powerful wind tore the mountains apart and shattered the rocks before the Lord, but the Lord was not in the wind. After the wind there was an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake. 12 After the earthquake came a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire. And after the fire came a gentle whisper.
Could’ve God already communicated to you in a still, small voice today? I’ll bet He has. Could it be that you didn’t take the time to notice and didn’t recognize it? Dig into the Bible and begin today to note which thoughts are likely yours alone, which were clearly originated by others . . . and which just might’ve been originated by God.
I hope this helps and you’ll take more time this week with God!
Have a great week!
