The Still Small Voice of God

Does God Speak to Ordinary People Today?

By Ron Myers

Does God still speak to people today?  He surely does.  I can testify that God audibly spoke to me on Wednesday, September 26th, as I was out scouting for a badly needed site to locate some internet equipment in Switzerland.  I'd been seeking an appropriate spot for more than a year, have knocked on dozens of doors, always getting the same “no” answer or at best, "maybe later".

Out prospecting again yesterday, after getting several "no" answers, I was about to head home to RADIO 74, when I stopped at an agricultural business. The site looked promising, yet feeling discouraged, I didn't talk to anyone and drove away. 

But not a kilometer down the road, I was surprised to hear a clear voice in my head which said, "turn around, go back, that was the place.  Go back!"  Having heard that little voice in times past, I knew it was God speaking. I obeyed and turned back.  I walked into the establishment, asked to speak with the owner and I was directed to his office. Briefly explaining my need, I wasn’t too surprised when the man said, "yes, that will be fine.  You can put your equipment on my land. Let's find a way to do it." My heart sang for joy!

The positive implications for RADIO 74 of his "yes" are profound.  And to think that I would have missed it had I not learned to recognize and obey God's voice… that "still small voice"!

God often speaks to people.  The Bible tells how God spoke to the prophet Elijah.  Here's the story.

1 Kings 19 New King James Version (NKJV)

Elijah Escapes from Jezebel

19 And Ahab told Jezebel all that Elijah had done, also how he had executed all the prophets with the sword. 2 Then Jezebel sent a messenger to Elijah, saying, “So let the gods do to me, and more also, if I do not make your life as the life of one of them by tomorrow about this time.” 3 And when he saw that, he arose and ran for his life, and went to Beersheba, which belongs to Judah, and left his servant there.

4 But he himself went a day’s journey into the wilderness, and came and sat down under a [a]broom tree. And he prayed that he might die, and said, “It is enough! Now, Lord, take my life, for I am no better than my fathers!”

5 Then as he lay and slept under a broom tree, suddenly an [b]angel touched him, and said to him, “Arise and eat.” 6 Then he looked, and there by his head was a cake baked on [c]coals, and a jar of water. So he ate and drank, and lay down again. 7 And the [d]angel of the Lord came back the second time, and touched him, and said, “Arise and eat, because the journey is too great for you.” 8 So he arose, and ate and drank; and he went in the strength of that food forty days and forty nights as far as Horeb, the mountain of God.

9 And there he went into a cave, and spent the night in that place; and behold, the word of the Lord came to him, and He said to him, “What are you doing here, Elijah?”

10 So he said, “I have been very zealous for the Lord God of hosts; for the children of Israel have forsaken Your covenant, torn down Your altars, and killed Your prophets with the sword. I alone am left; and they seek to take my life.”

God’s Revelation to Elijah

11 Then He said, “Go out, and stand on the mountain before the Lord.” And behold, the Lord passed by, and a great and strong wind tore into the mountains and broke the rocks in pieces before the Lord, but the Lord was not in the wind; and after the wind an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake; 12 and after the earthquake a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire; and after the fire [e]a still small voice.

Have you heard the 'still (quiet) small voice' of God speaking to you, calling you to repentance, confession of sins, to accept His free gift of salvation and everlasting life through Jesus Christ?

Don't expect God to come to you by way of a cyclone, an earthquake or the flash of an atomic bomb.  He usually speaks softly but clearly, calling individuals to humble themselves and seek Him.

The Creator God loves each of us so very much.  He loves you, has prepared a place for you in the New Earth, and longs to give you life without end, free of sickness, misery, aging, and death.  Won't you bow your head in reverence right now and say "yes" to Jesus?  You'll never regret making this decision that will extend infinitely beyond this short lifetime!
