A Gentle Whisper

…..there was the sound of a gentle whisper. When Elijah heard it, he wrapped his face in his cloak and went out and stood at the entrance of the cave. 1 Kings 19:12-13 (NLT)

A gentle whisper. That gentle whisper was God talking to Elijah when Elijah was scared and burnt out. Think about it. God was reaching out to Elijah, to talk. Sometimes God’s call to us is gentle and simple. Sometimes his instructions to us come in the form of a whisper. As one of his kids, I am beginning to realize that the power of God is not in the fact that he can call lightening down and destroy a city, it’s not that he can heal with a word, God’s power – his hold on my life is that he wants to talk to me. He wants to whisper his thoughts and share his plans with me. The all-knowing, all-seeing, able to do anything God of the Universe initiating and continuing a relationship with each one of us – now that is powerful.
