Dear fellow readers and writers, it’s been a while since my last post. I’ve been contributing for Christian Mingle as of late, so my writing time has been dedicated there for the time being. Still, today, I took a sick day because I’ve not been feeling well and decided to press into His goodness and thought I’d share a little word with you. Thanks for taking the time to read. I hope it encourages you through your mid-week.
So, you woke up today, darling. You said a silent prayer and perhaps hoped for some divine manifestation to happen in your life—something audible and clear that confirms your life to holiness.
We need to remember that yes, God speaks through earthquakes, storms, and whirlwinds, but He also speaks in the gentlest of whispers.
Sometimes, we worry that we can’t hear God, and therefore, we cry struggled prayers wondering if He’s disappointed in us. Rest in the truth that if you call to Him, He will answer you. “Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.” Jeremiah 33:3
God doesn’t do the extravagant every single time He wants to tell you something. Like Elijah, who didn’t hear God’s voice in the mighty wind, the earthquake, or the fire, but in the still small voice afterwards.
Quite often, while we’re seeking the overt, perceptible voice, there is God, speaking to us the most beautiful truth in a gentle whisper. And it’s not about confirming our strive for righteousness, it’s God confirming His righteousness, grace, and relentless love over our lives.
God speaks divine direction in the stillness, too.
