A Still Small Voice

"Oh, that My people would listen to Me,
That Israel would walk in My ways!"
~ Psalms 81:13 (NKJV)

And behold, the LORD passed by, and a great and strong wind tore into the mountains and broke the rocks in pieces before the LORD, but the LORD was not in the wind; and after the wind an earthquake, but the LORD was not in the earthquake; and after the earthquake a fire, but the LORD was not in the fire; and after the fire a still small voice.
~ 1 Kings 19:11-12 (NKJV)

"Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me."
~ Revelation 3:20 (NKJV)

Surely one of the most pleasant activities between close friends is a shared meal. There are plenty of other ways to have a wonderful time with a loved one. But is anything more intimate than to sit face to face, dine together, and give one another your undivided attention?

Who more than the Lord deserves our undivided attention? In the midst of busy days it can be so hard to hear His voice. How important it is to sit quietly first thing in the morning, and at other times, and listen for a still small voice and hear one's Maker share His thoughts.

He has so much to tell us—most of all of His great love. He waits patiently at the door for us to push everything else aside and give Him our attention.

My Lord, how precious are Your thoughts! How great is the measure of them and of Your love for us. Please help us awaken early, alert and ready to listen to You. Please help us push aside all thoughts that would intrude upon us as we listen for Your still small voice.

  1. I love to hear that still small voice.

  2. It's funny that this was your message for today. This morning, for the first time in a long time, I woke up before my husband and my kids. I just lay in bed, savoring the quiet morning and talking with the Lord. It was the best kind of break.
