Today’s word is ….
I love commercials, especially a good one. AT & T had an ad campaign which said, “bigger is better”. A man would ask a small group of kids a question which would make a comparison between two things, one which was bigger. And of course, we all always do think, “bigger is better.”
But not always true.
Elijah, in fleeing for his life, has an encounter with God. The Lord tells him to go out on the mountain and stand there. As he was standing there, Elijah experienced a windstorm which was so terrible that the rocks were torn loose. But the Lord was not in the wind.
He then experienced an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake either.
After the earthquake, he experienced a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire.
After the fire, there was the sound of a gentle whisper.
And Elijah found the Lord. (You can read the entire story in 1 Kings Chapter 19)
A gentle whisper. So small it was heard only by Elijah. Whisper – – to speak softly with little or no vibration of the vocal cords. Yet it can be heard by our ears.
A whispered word is special, holding significance as it is meant for an audience of one.
The Lord whispers to each of us. To me. To you. So softly it is meant for no one but ourselves.
His message, whispered ….
“I love you!”
“You are mine!”
