Between the Thunder and the Whisper
Last night, it rained cats and dogs in my neighbourhood. As a lover of sleep (who isn’t …lol), I could not stay much in dreamland as heavy thunder and fiery lightning blazed through the dark sky. I do not like both, I must confess, so i tucked myself further into the bed and tried to hide from reality, but then one cannot hide from the blaring voice of nature.
Very often, the Bible describes the voice of God as a thunder. A popular scene was at Mount Sinai where God spoke with Moses and gave the ten commandments in Exodus 19 and 20. The thunder conveys the awesomeness of God. It is unmistakable and can send you hiding under the cover of your bed.
But God does not always speak like a thunder. He also speaks in a still small voice (Elijah can testify to that) and when God does, He whispers so gently you may not hear His voice if you do not listen with your inner mind.
Because He is God, He has access to all means of communication and chooses whichever methods He deems appropriate. Our part is to recognise how He speaks to us and do what He says.
God speaks to me through dreams. How about you?
