The Roar of a Whisper!

I Kings 19:11, 12 NKJV
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.

There is a unique story of a teacher that had an unusual way of managing her students. Students at her school were very unruly except in her classroom. Open house was coming soon and the parents were eager to see what she was doing differently. The parents came in and sat in their children's desks. Before the teacher could begin to explain her classroom, a parent on the front row raised their hand and asked, "What do u do to make such a major difference?" The teacher reached in the top drawer of her desk and pulled out a small bell no bigger than two inches tall. She expressed that whenever she needed to get her kids attention she would simply ring the small bell. The kids had to pay attention in order to hear the bell.

As simple as the teacher's solution was for her classroom, the same solution can be applied in our everyday lives.

Elijah was told by God to get to a certain location. And although large earth rattling occurrences took place God was not audible until there was silence.

We must learn to see and hear God in the simplicity of things.

Keep listening!

God is talking - keep listening!

God speaks when u least expect it - keep listening!

A small pebble can cause ripples across a mighty lake and even a little drip can create a hole in concrete.

Are you prepared to Hear what God has to tell you? His directions may be basic but His results will be beyond compare! Go where He has sent you, a place away from the noise, and listen intently for His small but powerful voice! God has ordered your steps and is about to tell you your next major move!
