So when you are about to say something in conversation with others, and you sense a gentle restraint from His quiet whisper, heed the restraint and refrain from speaking. And when you are about to pursue some course of action that seems perfectly clear and right, yet you sense in your spirit another path being suggested with the force of quiet conviction, heed that conviction. Follow the alternate course, even if the change of plans appears to be absolute folly from the perspective of human wisdom. –from Way of Faith/ Streams in the Desert
I came across this passage in my devotional reading this morning. I have often refer to God as the whisperer. Rarely do I have this clear flashing neon signs saying NO, NOT THIS WAY but rather I’m often lead just by an inner voice quietly leading or giving me a sense of peace about a particular course.
May we each hear and heed the whispers today!
