Listen for the Whisper

Guide to a Joyful Heart

Tip of the Day:

The Lord said (to Elijah), “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 mountain 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.  After the earthquake came a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire.  And after the fire came a gentle whisper.  1Kings 19:11-12, KJV

Listen, Listen for the gentle whisper of God.  Will you stay steadfast and listen for Him after the storm?  Many times God shakes up our lives sometimes in small ways, sometimes in big ways, but He is always near.

I challenge you to make a point to pray soon after waking.  During your prayer, ask God to speak to your heart, then quiet your mind and listen.  You may not hear anything at first, be patient and wait upon the Lord.  Do this everyday this week, and your relationship with God will grow.

  1. What a wonderful and beautiful reminder. I think as humans we are so focused on everything going wrong we miss the signs of hope and knowing that God is working.
