  • A Still, Small Voice

And after the earthquake a fire; but the LORD was not in the fire: and after the fire a still small voice. 1 King 19:12

In His mercy, He speaks to us not in the voice of many waters, or thunder, or marching armies, or whirlwinds, or even in the combination of all these sounds.  He speaks to us in a gentle whisper.  The bible says that His voice will direct us “Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you saying, ‘This is the way; walk in it.’” Isaiah 30:2.  His Word also says that His sheep will know and recognize  His voice  (John 10:4).

“The only tyrant I accept in this world is the ‘still small voice’ within” –Mahatma Gandhi

“My hope for my children must be that they respond to the still, small voice of God in their own hearts.” –Andrew Young

Of course, God’s voice can be applied to the other ways we hear from Him: through the Scriptures, other messengers, life circumstances, and even our experiences of the supernatural. But none of these factors will produce genuine discernment if we don’t first nurture a tender heart, and that comes from a lavishly loving God who in His love and holiness is hungry for intimacy with us that only comes through prayer.
