TOPIC: The Whisper Of God
MEMORISE: “And after the earthquake a fire; but the Lord was not in the fire: and after the fire a still small voice.” – 1 Kings 19:12 (KJV)
SCRIPTURE READING: 1 Kings 19:9-14 (KJV)
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Jeremiah 28-30
HYMNAL 30: When We Walk With The Lord
1 When we walk with the Lord
in the light of his word,
what a glory he sheds on our way!
While we do his good will,
he abides with us still,
and with all who will trust and obey.
Trust and obey, for there’s no other way
to be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.
2 Not a burden we bear,
not a sorrow we share,
but our toil he doth richly repay;
not a grief or a loss,
not a frown or a cross,
but is blest if we trust and obey.
3 But we never can prove
the delights of his love
until all on the altar we lay;
for the favor he shows,
for the joy he bestows,
are for them who will trust and obey.
4 Then in fellowship sweet
we will sit at his feet,
or we’ll walk by his side in the way;
what he says we will do,
where he sends we will go;
never fear, only trust and obey.
In John 13:21-30, during the Last Supper, Jesus said someone was going to betray Him and Peter made John the Beloved ask Jesus who the person was. John asked and Jesus responded in a whisper that only John could hear.
In one of our Holy Ghost Services, God said, “All my sheep hear my voice, but very few hear my whisper”. There is a difference between when God speaks and when He whispers. When you hear God’s whisper, you will be several steps ahead of your colleagues. You will become number one in whatever you have set out to do. I pray that you will begin to hear God’s whisper from today, in Jesus’ name.
To hear God’s whisper, you must be closer to Him than everyone else. Before John heard Jesus’ whisper, the Bible tells us in John 13:25 the position he took: “He then lying on Jesus’ breast saith unto him, who is it?”
You cannot be closer to a person than the fellow lying on his or her chest. That is the position that you must take. You must get so close to God that you can practically hear His heartbeat. Only a few people are as close to God as this and you will see that they are addicted soul-winners because God’s heart beats for the souls of men.
The good thing is that God is willing to bring you very close to Him. He said in James 4:8:
Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hand, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.
The question however is, are you willing to draw near to Him and if so, how closely? Every time you sin, a distance is created between you and God (Isaiah 59:1-2, Psalm 66:18). The first thing you therefore need to do to get close enough to God to hear a his whisper is to be holy. Once you are holy, God will begin to tell you things that are for your ears only. Do you want to hear God’s whispers and become a custodian of divine secret Service?
Draw closer to Him in holiness, soul-wining, and fellowship today.
OPEN HEAVEN DEVOTIONAL ACTION POINT:
Father, please let me begin to hear your whispers from today, in Jesus name.

I Come to You, Lord Jesus. I Admit that I Am a Sinner, and I Want to Be Right with You. I Ask You to Forgive Me of All My Sins. Wash Me Away from All Unrighteousness and Cleanse Me Clean Today. the Bible Says if I Confess with My Mouth that “jesus Is Lord,” and Believe in My Heart that God Raised Me.
