Have You Heard a Gentle Whisper Lately?

1 Kings 19:12: “After the earthquake came a fire, but the LORD was not in the fire. And after the fire came a gentle whisper.”

Last Friday morning, I heard a gentle whisper to wear my comfortable shoes. I wore those comfortable shoes to and from Richmond, but vanity is a taskmaster. I changed into pretty shoes for the speaking engagement. They have a heel as low as my comfortable shoes but not the same support.

Do you ever ignore a gentle whisper and choose your own way?

My speaking event went very well. Afterward I changed into my comfortable shoes again for the drive home, but it was too late. My feet were throbbing. They throbbed the rest of the weekend.

Saturday morning I had no choice but to wear my comfortable shoes to another speaking engagement. I regretted not listening to that gentle whisper. My feet hurt so much that not even my comfortable shoes felt good. I wanted to go barefooted.

Those three hours on Friday in pretty shoes weren’t worth the pain.

Sometimes I get busy and hurry from one activity to another. I don’t stop to think that gentle whisper comes from God. I ignore it and suffer the consequences. Can you identify with me?

Dear God, help me listen to your gentle whisper. Amen.

Application: What will you do this week to listen to and obey God’s gentle whisper?
