Do you realize you have all the tools required to receive the voice of God? We only tune into God’s Spirit when a situation has taken us into the pit of despair, and then we call on God. Even if we are in tune with the Lord, we ignore to listen to Him talking to us in a ‘whisper’ because we let life’s daily tasks take over our lives, and many times we forget to pray and thank God for our existence. The Scripture (Job 26:14, NIV) states, “And how small a whisper we hear of HIM.”
God does not speak in a booming voice but a whisper when speaking to us as an individual, just like the whisper Elijah heard from the mountain cliffs after running away from Jezebel. (1Kgs 19:12, KJV) “And after the earthquake a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire; after the fire a still small voice.” The Tanakh (Torah) version has a distinct English language translation to interpret what the Scripture writer received from the Holy Spirit.
In verse 11, “And He said: Go out and stand in the mountain before the Lord, Behold! The Lord passes, and a great and strong wind splitting mountains and shattering boulders before the Lord, but the Lord was not in the wind. And after the wind, an earthquake-not in the earthquake was the Lord.”
12. “After the earthquake fire, not in the fire was the Lord, and after the fire a still small sound.”
13. “And as Elijah heard, he wrapped his face in his mantle, and he went out and stood at the entrance to the cave, and behold a voice came to him and said: What are you doing here, Elijah?”
