Brothers and Sisters, are you Seeking The Lord Jesus in the Calamities Of The World? In those things that have been Shaken, Moved and Destroyed? Yet, here you are without a Holy Answer!
“1 The Pharisees also with the Sadducees came, and tempting desired him that he would shew them a sign from heaven. 2 He answered and said unto them, When it is evening, ye say, [It will be] fair weather: for the sky is red. 3 And in the morning, [It will be] foul weather to day: for the sky is red and lowring. O [ye] hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky; but can ye not [discern] the signs of the times? 4 A wicked and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given unto it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas. And he left them, and departed.”
The Pharisees and Sadducees tempted Jesus to show them a Sign, to Perform to Their Satisfaction to Prove that Jesus was The Son Of God, The Christ, but, Jesus Rebuked them. Many of you Seek Jesus for an Answer and are Looking for The Answer in a Sign, but No Sign is given, The Lord Jesus is Not in that what you seek.
Elijah sought The Voice Of The Father in those things that The Father was Not In…
“11 And he said, Go forth, and stand upon the mount before the LORD. And, behold, the LORD passed by, and a great and strong wind rent the mountains, and brake in pieces the rocks 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.”
Too many of you are Looking for an Answer, but you are Looking where Jesus will not be found. For Us who are The Blood Bought, Saved By Jesus, The Christ have been given The Holy Spirit to Helps Us, Lead Us, Teach Us in Following Jesus, bringing forth Answers in The Small Still Voice.
For Us, let there be Calamity Of Storms, but let Us Stop, be at Peace and Listen for Jesus to Speak. It is when we find our Closet, Set Aside, Asking In Faith and Listening For Jesus to Speak His Answer that usually is in The Small Still Voice, bringing us Peace where No Peace can be found, that Surpasses Our Understanding.
“But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.”
“5 Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord [is] at hand. 6 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. 7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”
It is when we Set Aside those things that Rise Against Us that we Must Seek Jesus, Believing, Knowing His Answer is to His Glory and Our Good. The Answer will be in The Small Still Voice within us when we Truly Seek Jesus For The Answer!
The World we live in seeks a Sign, seeks an Answer, Looking in the Wrong Areas. We, The Blood Bought, if We will Humble Ourselves in Our Seeking, there will be an Answer to those Who Believe. But there is a Clause…
“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”
“If ye love me, keep my commandments.”
“If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love.”
Too many of you Seek An Answer, but you are not Willing to be Obedient to The Word or The Holy Spirit, expecting Jesus to Answer and He Will Not! In order for us to be Lead By Jesus, in order for us to be Blessed By Jesus we First Must Walk With Him in All Areas of Our Lives, Surrendering To His Will.
Jesus, Our Lord and Savior sought an Answer from The Father, by Separating Himself from those things around Him, WANTING to be OBEDIENT to The Father in All Things, giving up His Will for The Fathers Will. I know, some of you are thinking what does that have to do with The Small Still Voice? Jesus on purpose, separated Himself to be able to Listen For The Fathers Voice.
Mat 26:38-39, 42, 44
“38 Then saith he unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful, even unto death: tarry ye here, and watch with me. 39 And he went a little further, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou [wilt]. … 42 He went away again the second time, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if this cup may not pass away from me, except I drink it, thy will be done. … 44 And he left them, and went away again, and prayed the third time, saying the same words.”
Sometimes The Small Still Voice is in an Answer that we have already received before we have come to the place where you stand now Asking and Seeking. Our Lord Jesus already knew The Answer, but was Asking, Seeking for another answer, His Answer was to be The Sacrifice.
Sometimes you Ask and Seek for those things that we already have an answer for and are not willing to accept, so you Listen, Hoping for a Different Answer, but The Answer is in The Still Small Voice.
When Jesus arose from His Prayer, He was at Peace, Confident, Believing that The Answer was In The Fathers Hands and Not His. This Still Voice enabled Jesus to go to The Cross, to be Our Sacrifice for Our Sins, to Strengthen Us in times of trouble without a sign of change. But, again, Jesus just like us, had to be Willing To Be Obedient.
Scriptures tells us that Without Faith it is Impossible to please God and that when we Ask, Believing, we will receive according to His Will. If we are Walking In Obedience to The Word and The Holy Spirit, The Still Voice is all we need. It is the Smallest Still Voice there is…Silence. It is not that Jesus did not Hear Your Request, but wants you to Stand In His Smallest Voice, Believing that He Is The Son Of God, that Your Life is In His Hands!
“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”
“21 Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this [which is done] to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done. 22 And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.”
Again, the Clause to this is Obedience!
It is in The Small Still Voice that we will find Peace that surpasses Our Understanding to be able to continue to Walk Forward In Jesus, no matter what the World says or does. Listen for The Small Still Voice, everyday, all day long, Jesus is Speaking, we just have to Listen!
Amen and Amen!!!
Be Blessed in the Mighty Name of Jesus, Our Lord and Savior!!!
Amen and Amen!!!
