The Power of a Whisper
By Rick Boxx
December 14, 2011
Three guests were invited to debate an emotional topic on a talk show program. Two guests and the host became so heated that they began shouting at each other.
Finally the host stopped the bickering by asking the third guest, who had been silent, for her opinion. Her quiet and thoughtful words suddenly brought order to the chaos and seemed more credible than the shrill shouting of the others.
In 1 Kings 19, Elijah has waited for God through a powerful wind, an earthquake, and even a fire. In verse 12 we learn, “After the earthquake came a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire. And after the fire came a gentle whisper.”
To sell your product or idea sometimes a gentle whisper is better than a shout.
