The still, small voice!

Abba, I think there is confusion about the still, small voice that speaks life. It is the utterance of the Holy Spirit, not Your voice directly.

I defer to the Scriptures for this reasoning. In John 15, Jesus gives us insight into this issue. In verses 13–14, He says:

“However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears, He will speak.”

“and He will tell you things to come. He will glorify Me, for He will take what is Mine and declare it to you.”

It is the Holy Spirit who communicates directly with us. His is the still, small voice that comes amid the storms. You see us, and You are with us, but You communicate through the Holy Spirit.

Abba, this is why it is so important to be baptized in the Holy Spirit. We each need to be filled to overflowing with the Spirit so we can operate fully in the things You have for us.

We can trust the Holy Spirit because Your Word calls Him the Spirit of truth. Again, John 16:13 states that He will guide us into all truth.

The Spirit of truth cannot be received by the world because the world neither sees Him nor knows Him. But, Abba, we know Him because He dwells in us.

This is what Paul wrote about in the opening chapter of Ephesians when He called the Holy Spirit Your earnest deposit (KJV).

This is Your guarantee of our inheritance until You call us home, fully redeeming Your purchased possession through the atoning blood of Jesus Christ.

But until that time, Abba, we need to be Spirit–filled to hear clearly that still, small voice of the Holy Spirit.

In that way, we can also be Spirit–led, which is how You have called us to walk at all times.

In the name of Jesus, we pray! Amen!

Have a great and God-filled day! Shalom!
