Hear the whisper

Not in the lightening.

Not in the thunder.

Not in the wind.

Not in the storm.

Not in the quakes.

Listen for the whisper.  Feel the touch.  It may be so gentle that you miss it.

1 Kings 19:11-13

New International Version (NIV)

11 The Lord said, “Go out and stand on the mountain in the presence of the Lord, for theLord is about to pass by.”

Then a great and powerful wind tore the mountains 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. 12 After the earthquake came a fire, but the Lordwas not in the fire. And after the fire came a gentle whisper. 13 When Elijah heard it, he pulled his cloak over his face and went out and stood at the mouth of the cave.

Then a voice said to him, “What are you doing here, Elijah?”

Don’t beat your donkey

Some Christians don’t believe they are worthy.  Some believe they are on the direct phone line with God and can speak for Him.

The music group Genesis had a popular song that said:

‘Cause Jesus, He knows me
And He knows I’m right
I’ve been talking to Jesus all my life
Oh yes, He knows me
And He knows I’m right
And He’s been telling me everything is alright

Jesus may be speaking to you but don’t let it go to your head.  He may also be speaking through your donkey!

Numbers 22:30

The donkey said to Balaam, “Am I not your own donkey, which you have always ridden, to this day? Have I been in the habit of doing this to you?” “No,” he said.Image
