Still Whispers

5 Jul

A few weeks ago I happened to open the Bible to the passage that has over the years become my life verse.  “So just what is a life verse?” you ask.  It is a passage of scripture that God repeatedly draws  to one’s attention to communicate truth at multiple levels across the different times of need that occur in the multitudinous stages of a person’s spiritual growth.  For me, it is Romans 12:1,2.  “I beseech you therefore brethren by the mercies of God that you present your bodies a living sacrifice; holy, acceptable unto God which is your reasonable service and be not conformed to this world but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind that ye may prove what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God.”

After I finished reading these verses again, I sat back in quietness, waiting on the Lord to communicate.  I did not hear words in my ears.  But as I picked up my pen I began writing down still whispers:

Good morning my brother, my son, my temple.  I am the Still Small Voice, the Holy Spirit.  I live in you where your weakness would dwell.  I fill up that place in your heart.  It is my pleasure to occupy it and maintain it and defend it until you ask me to leave.  I will be there when the enemies come knocking to say, “GO away!”  I am what God sees when He looks upon you.  You brought me in by faith in the shed blood of your Brother, Jesus Christ.  I am here to calm your mind and comfort your heart.  I love to commune with you about peace in your soul.  I like it when you listen to my advice.  I am not quick to leave when you choose a wrong direction but sometimes you feel my sadness when you open the door to talk to the strangers the Father hates.  When I ask you to close the door I am sorry for your shame or anger but I am sorry only because I know the thoughts the Father has for you and I know the potential you have to be used to bring glory to Him.  I will always make it possible for you to have a way to close the door.   I will fight to stay  in your heart as long as I know you have not abandoned the cause  we share.  I am fortified with your attempts to show love and holiness and relish the opportunity when you ask for my help.  I share your thoughts and needs with the Father in ways you cannot understand and I help you know how to share with Him from your own heart.  Please continue to care for me by feeding me with God’s word.  Nurture me with your obedience and submission to it.  Share me with all those you know who will benefit from my residence like you have.  I am the sustainer of the hope you share with hearts.
