One of my favorite versus in the entire Bible! Do we hear His whisper? The truth is, if we can’t hear the whisper, we won’t recognize His power.
First is the issue of the whisper. God is speaking. Every week, every day, every morning and every night. The question is, "Am I listening?" Honestly, this is a hard issue for me to implement. There are so many other things that get in the way of me hearing God’s voice. It’s called Life!! Taking kids to school, work, football practice, taking out the trash, talking on the phone, ugh! Can you relate? I need to learn to be still so I can hear Him speaking, because he is always speaking, I’m just not listening.
Second, I firmly believe that the best place to find God’s whisper is in the life of an orphan. You can’t miss it. It’s in their eyes, their voices, their actions, it’s clear as day. He is the least of these. This is where Christ is hidden.
I have taken hundreds of people to minster to orphans around the world and nothing impacts their lives more than seeing Jesus in the eyes of a hurting child. "God’s ways are not our ways," it tells us in Isaiah 55. And His way is the way of an orphan.
Third, God always sends exactly what is needed. And this is what He does in our lives. We can trust in His faithfulness.
"He never sends a flood if a shower will do; never sends a fortune if a shilling will do; never sends an army if a man will do. And He never thunders if a whisper will do." This quote is from F. W. Boreham, one of my favorite authors in the world. He is pictured on the right. With a little work, I have managed to collect his entire collection of 53 books, many of which are out of print. You can still find them on Ebay and at abebooks.com. He is also the favorite author of Billy Graham and Ravi Zacharias,
God’s method is always a man (and a woman). And that’s you! You are His answer, He has called you by name, are you listening to His voice?!
Is your desire to feel and know the thunder of God’s power? Then learn to hear the whisper – the rest will follow.
