The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:5-6)

The Still Small Voice
Your voice is described as still and small, a gentle whisper. (1st Kings 19:12)
Is that how your Spirit works on the conscience? Within our prayers and devotional disciplines?
I appreciate your gentleness, but in this noisy world, have you considered surround sound with a subwoofer? A hundred decibels with thumping bass!
I'm distracted - in din and clamor - and plagued with attention deficit.
Holy Spirit, help me to listen, to hear God's voice.
If this isn’t a matter of volume, then it must be about filtering and discernment. About making time and being attentive to the gentle whisper.
Give ear! Our Mighty God does not raise his voice. Amen.
