The Still, Small Voice

Roar.

This week I committed to waking up and starting my day with my personal Bible reading and worship. Kat from Inspired to Action challenged us in her ebook to create a playlist for that worship time. She and I share an affection for the music of Watermark and one of the songs I knew I had to include has a line that says,

“…can you hear the holy roar?”

That is the question I am asking myself. Can I hear His still, small voice?

“rejoicing, and singing, and crying out to you Lord…”

That is the line from the song that is easier for me to accomplish. It’s what I am supposed to do. I can add that to my agenda, my daily list.

But the listening is harder. Stopping long enough to hear what He’s pressing on my heart. Being open to new possibilities or closing doors. Taking a moment to call, write, or visit the person He brings to mind.

I Kings 19:11-12 says, “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.”

What is He gently whispering to you today? Is it becoming a holy roar?
