|The end of the day is a good time to listen for God whispers|
I shared how I had read that if you really want to get someone's attention, just whisper. They have to focus on listening in order to hear you whereas yelling just disappears into the cacophony of sound that is already in the room.
It's kind of like what God does with us. I, personally, would prefer that God would speak to me in a loud booming voice whenever He wants to tell me something. "Jerri, thou shalt serve as the worship leader this next year." Wouldn't that be cool? No questioning or struggling but you would just know.
However, that is not how He chooses to do things. The prophet Isaiah learned that God speaks to us in a still small voice, not in thunderous tones. He wants us to seek, to quiet ourselves and to focus on Him. He takes joy in whispering to us and then seeing us respond.
It takes focus to hear whispering. It's another way we can show our love for God - by taking the time to listen for God whispers.
