Day 11: The Whisper of Destiny
1st Kings 19:7,12,15-16 “Arise and eat for the journey is too great for you.” And he arose and ate and drank, and went into the strength of that food 40 days and 40 nights to Horeb, the mount of God… (Verse 12) And after the earthquake a fire, but the Lord was not in the Fire. And after the fire the sound of a low whisper. (Verse 15-16) And the Lord said to him…”Elisha the son of Shaphat of Abel Meholah you shall anoint to be prophet in your place.”
Elijah had run from the curses of Jezebel. Encompassed in a deep depression God called him into a forty day fast and there he heard the whisper of divine destiny, “Go anoint Elisha”. He received his marching orders in a fast and the next stage of his life story unfolded. It would be Elisha who would destroy the altar of Baal. Do you see it? In the fast meaninglessness, depression and failure are shattered by the whisper of God. Fasting makes your life a landing strip for fresh revelation.
In 1996 on an extended 40 day fast I heard the whisper of God which in reality was an audible voice. It was like a roar leading me into the next stage of my calling in God, “Stretch forth a wakening rod over the earth! Will you do that?” I awoke in the awe of God. Little did I know that that word would lead to The Call and for 20 years we stretched out that rod of awakening. In this fast believe that you will hear the whisper of God, or a roar from the Lord, or a destiny dream or a picture of your next assignment in life. Oh friends, this gets so exciting. Just one whisper from heaven is powerful enough to bring a revolution to your own personal life, your family, your city, your nation. A whisper can start a movement.
God in this fast, make my life a landing strip for your revelation. Whisper to me my destiny. Please show me who I am and where I am to go next. I ask for dreams, the last days language of the Holy Spirit. I am waiting expectantly for your whisper…
