Bobby Conner Quote
Have you ever stopped to wonder why our omnipotent Creator chooses to reveal Himself through the aural accent of a still small voice? He could more easily command our attention with the fullness of a hearty, “Hello!” a “Hey there!” or “Hi!”

When Elijah sought the presence of the LORD upon the mountain, he had to pass through the furious rock-wrecking wind, earthquake and fire before he heard the soft whisper of a voice speaking his name. He was neither in the shrieking fury of the tempest, nor the earth-shattering tremor. He was not in the raucous roar of the flame, but in the calm stillness in the aftermath of it all.

A voice said to him, “Elijah, what are you doing here?”

Have you ever hearkened to hear the Holy Spirit whisper your name in the night? Have you ever, like Elijah, fled to the mountaintop just to hear the whisper of a word from God?

Why, Holy Father, do you whisper? Why do you speak with a still small voice? Is it because you are so humble, so gentle and kind? Is it Your way of drawing us nearer into Your intimate friendship? Are You testing our attention? Are You inviting us to share in the secrets of Your heart?

Come Holy Spirit, and whisper in our ears.

Come Holy Spirit, and whisper in our ears. Dispel all the darkness. Cast out all fear. Imbue us with life through the light of the Son. Tell us the secrets you cherish. Reveal a few of the innumerable thoughts you are always thinking about us. Impart to us the destiny of Your design, the purity and the purpose of our path in Christ.

If you pray this prayer with me, I challenge you to wait on the LORD. Listen for His voice. Breathe in deep the fresh air of His presence. Do not strive. Rest in trust. Hope in love. Ask and wait for Him to speak. He will come.

In the stillness, His presence manifests an atmosphere of such holiness our hearts can hardly handle it. We cannot help but bow low in the reverential fear of the LORD. This fear is not of dread, but of awe. It is the kind of holy fear a father first feels when he holds the life of of his newborn child in his arms; it is a fear that is rooted in the deepest and most confident love.

In the stillness, His presence manifests an atmosphere of such holiness our hearts can hardly handle it.

Let His presence pervade. With every breath, breathe in the fullness of God. Close your eyes and listen for the whisper of His love. He will speak, and your heart will leap. He will tell you who you truly are. What you hear, you must not hold in. What He speaks in the darkness, shout it from the mountaintops.

For you are a city on a hill, and the light he shines in you cannot be hidden. In the secret place, the quiet solitude you reserve to listen for His voice, He will spark a light for you to ignite into a signal fire for all to see. He will reveal Himself to you, and you will reveal His light to the world.


Matthew 10:27 – What I tell you in the dark, speak in the light; what is whispered in your ear, proclaim from the housetops.

John 14:21 – He who has My commandments and keeps them, it is he who loves Me. And he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and manifest Myself to him.”

Matthew 11:25 – At that time Jesus declared, “I thank you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that you have hidden these things from the wise and understanding and revealed them to little children;

John 10:27 – “My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me;
