I love learning, growing and gaining wisdom in the human experience. I love learning how humanity processes and strives to become greater. I believe placed in humanity is a whisper that says that there is more. I used to believe that this was our internal beacon leading us back to the Father and I still do believe this, but there are so many Christians that are unsettled with life. In my later years I am beginning to have discernment between those that have a real calling on there life and those that are feeding their ambition while placing the label “calling” on that ambition. It doesn’t matter what you do as your calling, your calling could be a garbage collector and I am not saying that while you are following your calling you can’t be ambitious. But I am saying that there has been a shift in the atmosphere and if you are following your ambition it will not satisfy any more. There is an eternal whisper in us that is crying out to see the fulfillment of all God has in our lives. A cry that says there is something beyond… There is a longing in me that cries out Abba Father come and fill me with you, with eternity. Eccl. 3:11 says; “He has placed eternity in the human heart.” I pray that as you read this that something inside you will say, “Yes! There is more!”
There is some truth in the Buddhist, there is some truth in the New Ager, there is truth in the Christian, but if you are a follower of the “Ways” of truth you are missing the essential truth giver, all wisdom and truth come from Jesus Christ. There is a story in Matthew 16 where Jesus was sitting with his disciples and he asked them who do the people say that the Son of Man is? Then he asked them, “But who do you say that I am?” Peter boldly said, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.” I love this story because I believe that this is a great source of truth for us in our relationship with God. Jesus’ answer was, “You are blessed because my Father in heaven has revealed this to you. You did not learn this from any human being. Now I say to you that you are Peter and upon this rock I will build my church, and all the powers of hell will not conquer it.” Peter is not the rock on which the church was to be built but the example for us to build the church upon. Peter relied on the revelation from God the Father to open his eyes to the truth of who Jesus was. This is an essential key in our growth as a Christian, to spend time with our Father, with our savior and to allow Him to reveal his truth to us. That whisper inside that is longing for more is the cry in us all to experientially know God and His truth (his perfect will) for our lives.
Following that whisper can be a frightening expedition because it may at times make us re-evaluate all that we have ever been taught concerning God. It may at times be even dangerous. It may at times make us disliked or scorned in our community of loved ones. Following that whisper is a wonderfully, frightening adventure. But I highly recommend it. As a child I had the whisper that there was more out there in our world. One of my favorite things I loved to do as a teen with my friends is just drive. I think my grandmother began this when I was a little girl playing the get lost game. She would come to an intersection and let us kids pick which way she should turn and then we had to figure out how to get home. I believe that God placed that in me at a young age so that as an adult I am dissatisfied with staying at home and living a 9-5 job. My heart is to travel the world and to discover Him in many different nations.
What is the whisper in your own heart? Just like Peter spend time with our Savior and allow God to reveal in to you.
