The Still Small Voice
In the last three devotionals, we have looked at principles on how we should respond when our life is in crisis. The last principle is found in 1 Kings 19:11-12,
Then He said, "Go out, and stand on the mountain before the LORD." And behold, the LORD passed by, and a great and strong wind tore into the mountains and broke the rocks in pieces before the LORD, but the LORD was not in the wind; and after the wind an earthquake, but the LORD was not in the earthquake; and after the earthquake a fire, but the LORD was not in the fire; and after the fire a still small voice.
If your life is in crisis today, you need to remind yourself how God leads. Do not look for it in outward, powerful manifestations—the strong wind, an earthquake, or fire.
Rather, listen for that "still small voice."
That is how Jesus speaks to us today. Read carefully the words of John 16:13,
"However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come."
God has given you and me His Holy Spirit to lead and guide us. And, friend, when God leads you, it is going to be through the still small whisper of the Spirit in your heart.
Yet many people want more than that. Some people think, "I'm in a desperate situation. I need something more!" You and I need nothing more, because through the indwelling Holy Spirit, we have God on the inside.
So if God is going to guide you, He is going to do it from within…through that still small voice.
