WAIT! Shhhh..... Do you hear that???

(1 Kings 19:11-12) 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.

     We always hear people say God will answer your prayers through the still small voice or that God will lead us with a still small voice... Well, what does the still small voice sound like? Does it even sound like anything? And how do we know it is the still small voice?
Let's see what the scriptures say :)

(Job 32:8) 8. But there is a spirit in man: and the inspiration of the Almighty giveth them understanding.
     There is a spirit in man and we receive inspiration from God to give us understanding.

(D&C 8:2) 2. Yea, behold, I will tell you in your mind and in your heart, by the Holy Ghost, which shall come upon you and which shall dwell in your heart.
(D&C 11:3) 13. Verily, verily, I say unto you, I will impart unto you of my Spirit, which shall enlighten your mind, which shall fill your soul with joy;
     We receive inspiration of God in our mind and in our heart by the Holy Ghost.

(2 Nephi 32:5) 5. For behold, again I say unto you that if ye will enter in by the way, and receive the Holy Ghost, it will show unto you all things what ye should do.
(Moroni 10:5) 5. And by the power of the Holy Ghost ye may know the truth of all things.
     By this power we receive the inspiration.

(Galatians 5:22-23) 22. But the fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
 23. Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

     Alright.. We've discovered that God uses a still small voice to lead, guide, and answer His people!  And that the still small voice is inspiration given by the Holy Ghost, who delivers the messgae to our minds and our hearts, which is accompanied by feelings of love, joy, peace, goodness, etc...

     So to end I would like to leave you with a quote, " To hear is to doubt; to see is to deceive; but to feel is to believe." I leave this with you in the name of Jesus Christ Amen! :)
