Oswald Chambers says in My Utmost for His Highest, “The voice of the Spirit of God is as gentle as a summer breeze—so gentle that unless you are living in complete fellowship and oneness with God, you will never hear it. The sense of warning and restraint that the Spirit gives comes to us in the most amazingly gentle ways. And if you are not sensitive enough to detect His voice, you will quench it, and your spiritual life will be impaired. . . . “  (I Kings 19:12)

                                                                                               

“God’s voice is still and quiet and easily buried under an avalanche of clamor.” Charles Stanley

                                                         

“. . . O people, the Lord has told you what is good, and this is what he requires of you: to do what is right, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God.” Micah 6:8 NLT
