A gentle whisper from the LORD...
"Then a great and powerful wind tore the mountains apart and shattered the rocks before the LORD, but the LORD was not in the wind. After the wind there was an earthquake, but the LORD was not in the earthquake. After the earthquake came a fire, but the LORD was not in the fire. And after the fire came a gentle whisper." 1 Kings 19:11-12

God Bends Down
God Whispers: "I love the Lord because he hears my voice and my prayer for mercy. Because he bends down to listen."
Sometimes children can speak so quietly that you have to bend down on their level to hear their meek voices. Not only can you hear them but it communicates to them that you hear them, that they are important to you and that you think they are important. I love this verse from Psalm 116 because it gives a beautiful description of how God bends down to hear us. The God who created heaven and earth and the God who is so magnificent that we fear Him wants to bend down on our level to hear us.
"Whom have I in heaven but you? I desire you more than anything on earth." Psalm 73:25
And in return, we begin to yearn for Him. When we begin to comprehend even a little how much he cares for us, our hearts passionately seek Him and we want nothing other than His love. It's beautiful, isn't it?!
