The definition of a whisper is basically speaking without the movement of your vocal cords.
Have you ever experienced what a whisper is? You may have whispered to someone a secret, or whispered something in someone’s ear for privacy, but if you can feel your vocal cords moving then, technically speaking, you’re not whispering.
Today is the fifth day of my fast and the whole point of why I’m doing this is to get closer, and have a better fulfilling relationship with God. One of the things that I’ve noticed throughout my days is that God loves to talk to us. Whether I’m praying, reading my bible, worshiping him through a song, or just going throughout my day God will speak to us.
But the cool thing is that he doesn’t just speak. God likes speaking in privacy with his children so instead he whispers.
Have you ever came across a situation; whether good or bad, and in your head you hear this little voice saying ‘Nope. Don’t do it!’, or you hear it saying ‘Do it! It would be good in the end!’. I like to believe that the little voice in the back of our head is our spirit. Maybe even God’s Spirit.
Now, I don’t want to make this a preaching moment because I have no audacity to be preaching to anyone about anything. But I do want to make this moment count for anyone who is reading this. Because our lives matter. Our decisions will take us to places that we’ve never dreamed about going. Places that either our own hearts desire; which could be limited, or places that our Heavenly Father has planned for us; which is greater than even our own dreams could hold capacity.
Listening to that little voice in the back of your head could be tricky. Tricky in the sense that sometimes when that little voice pops in the back of our head we never truly believe if we should listen to it or not. Sometimes we hear the little whisper and we completely ignore it. Other times we hear the little whisper and we acknowledge it, but choose the opposite of what the whisper is suggesting. But on rare occasions, when we hear that soft whisper in the back of our heads, we are so compelled and so drawn to that little whisper that we do exactly what it tells us to do.
What if we lived our lives by listening to that little whisper everyday? Would our lives improve? Would they prosper? Would anything change?
Sometimes when I’m stuck trying to make a decision about something I like to consider the pros and the cons. Usually if the pros outweigh the cons then I know what my decision is, and vice-versa. But what if the pros and the cons are the same? That’s when I’ll start to make up scenarios about what would happen if I went through with that decision or not.
One of things I’ve learned as a young adult is that I should never let a moment pass me by without knowing I made the decision with peace in my heart. Yes, it’s true that life is short and we should live each day like it’s our last, but that should not be at the expense of our very lives.
So I leave this with you. Listen to that soft whisper in the back of your head. The whisper is abrupt and quick. Other times it lingers filling up our mind. What will you do with the answer the whisper gives you?
