“Go out and stand before me on the mountain,” the Lord told him. And as Elijah stood there, the Lord passed by, and a mighty windstorm hit the mountain. It was such a terrible blast that the rocks were torn loose, but the Lord was not in the wind. After the wind there was an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake. And after the earthquake there was a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire. And after the fire there was the sound of a gentle whisper. When Elijah heard it, he wrapped his face in his cloak and went out and stood at the entrance of the cave. And a voice said, “What are you doing here, Elijah?” 1 Kings 19:11-13 NLT
It's not the intensity of God speaking that gets your attention. It's the intimacy with which God speaks. To hear the whisper of a voice requires a closeness that invades your space, an intimacy that is personal, familiar and comforting. Even when it confronts and convicts, it is done so out of caring and concern.
To hear a whisper you have to really be listening. We can easily miss it when all the noises of life are competing for our attention.
Listen for the whisper of God's voice today.
