It’s interesting to me to see how many people in our society seem to value being LOUD! They equate being LOUD to being strong…to being assertive.

And, yes there are times when one should raise his or her voice, but some of my greatest regrets are times when I opened my big mouth and raised my voice when I shouldn’t have done so.

Quiet, even silence can be just as strong and assertive, if not more so, than shouting. Never underestimate the power of a will-timed, God breathed gentle whisper. So, the next time you get ready to yell, shout, cuss or threaten, remember this…


A SHOUT gets their attention, but a WHISPER forces them listen…


1 Kings 19:11-13 (NKJV)

 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 a still small voice. 13 So it was, when Elijah heard it, that he wrapped his face in his mantle and went out and stood in the entrance of the cave. Suddenly a voice came to him, and said, “What are you doing here, Elijah?”

BE BLESSTIFIED!

God bless you! I'm a husband, father and ordained Minister since 1996. I serve as an Associate Minister at Oak Spring Church Arlington TN, a suburb of Memphis. I'm a professional Copywriter for a Fortune 500 company, published Gospel songwriter and owner of an independent label, Al-Go-Rhythm Music. My main spiritual gift is Exhortation...I'm a natural encourager. I love the word of God and sharing it from a "Wow, I never thought of it like that before" perspective. There's so much fresh revelation in God's word that is just as relevant today as it was as it unfolded. I hope my daily devotionals enhance your walk with God, taking you beyond BLESSED to BLESSTIFIED.
