‘Daddy, you’re not listening to me!’ she shouts while competing with her younger siblings for my affection. Yet when my daughter comes closer, puts her arms around me and whispers in my ear, she gets my full attention.
Ever feel that God is silent? Read 1 Kings 19v11-13. Could it be that the same God who created the whole universe is speaking to YOU, but in a gentle whisper, and longs for your affection? This may take the form of a thought, verse or even a sense or feeling at any time of the day or night. Hearing a whisper requires shutting out the noise though and being still before God just long enough toshhhhhhear him speak.
