What you Whisper

Luke 12:3 “What you have said in the dark will be heard in the daylight. What you have whispered to someone behind closed doors will be shouted from the rooftops.”

I have never enjoyed the company of people who like to whisper. First of all, I am kind of hard of hearing. Secondly, I more often than not find what they have to say not the kind of thing they would say out loud. It’s usually something making jest of another person or with a sense of ridicule behind it.


Generally, the reason they whisper is because they don’t want but a select few to hear what they say, because they’d be embarrassed if everyone heard what they had to say. Their whispers are based on criticism or poking fun at another.

The Lord says that He hears us, even when we are behind closed doors in the darkness of night. Even when we whisper.

One of my favorite times to talk to God is in the stillness and darkness of night. He causes me to focus, and I feel a closeness to the Lord. I recognize that He is present. He is  listening even to my whisper.

Commit that when you whisper, all that comes from your lips is encouraging to others and uplifting. Take every opportunity to whisper to God. He will whisper back.

Have a blessed day.
