I’m still referencing to Bill Hybels’ The Power of a Whisper. In his last chapter, he writes a simple prayer we should use when asking to hear God’s whisper.
You say it, and I’ll do it.
You say it, and I’ll follow it.
You say it, and I’ll obey it.
You say it and I’ll carry it out.
Whatever it is you want done in order for your kingdom to advance, God, you whisper the word and consider it done
For me, personally, if I truly believe that our Creator is sovereign over everything—which clearly includes my own life—I will never hesitate to obey his commands. At least that’s how I want to aim to live. Go and do as commanded with faith like the centurion in Mark1. Really. If I truly believe He’s God, I trust Him fully. I will listen to His whisper and do what He asks. For He is Good.
