The Still Small Voice

“And after the fire a still small voice.” 1 Kings 19:12
I am only beginning to learn this, and I wish I had been a better listener earlier. It is so exciting to hear that still small voice, and to obey it. Maybe you can’t get someone off your mind. You feel a burden to call someone, take food to a family, go sit with a sick neighbor, or write a letter — the ways for a godly woman to minister are endless.
If we begin the day asking the Lord to fill our hands, if we are listening for that still small voice, the Spirit within us can move us to do His bidding. I am speaking of being willing and ready to be used by the Master on a daily basis. It may be a small, hidden work, seen only by our Lord. But it will be worth any sacrifice we make. “I will guide thee with Mine eye” (Psa. 32:88I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye. (Psalm 32:8)).
