WHISPER
HEARING THE VOICE OF GOD – 1
Sunday, January 7, 2018

The act of hearing is detecting vibrations of the eardrum caused by sound waves. The intensity of those sound waves is measured in decibels. A whisper is just 15 decibels.

Numerous times Jesus says, “He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit is saying…”

1 Kings 19:1-12
V.1-3 Elijah runs for his life and lands in isolation.
V.4-8 Even in isolation God sustains Elijah.
V. 9 When God asks a question it’s not because He doesn’t know the answer.
V.10 Isolation gives room for fear, doubt, and confusion.
V.11-12 God doesn’t always speak according to our preconceived ideas.
V. 12 “a still small voice.”  The ESV uses the words “low whisper.”

Here’s the question – Can you hear the whisper above the pain of the wounds?

What is the Spirit saying? ____________________________________________________________________________________________
