I sought You on the mountain top
where a howling wind pierced my ears
with a mighty rushing whistling sound
An earthquake shook the cliffs
and knocked me off my feet
so I cowered and crawled upon the ground
A blazing fire began to rage
as desperately I searched
but You were nowhere to be found
Then a still small voice you whispered
In my ear as gentle as a breeze
You truly know how to astound

Yes so true
Elijah A Alexander Jr from Washington DC on September 22, 2019:
I have found that once we surrender to our Father it will speak in a still small voice. At first I thought they were external until a few years after my New Birth, then it became voice from within me. As a child I heard what I thought was an external voice a few times and during my new conception until some 2 years after my rebirth.
Before I discovered it was internal I was told to do something from internal and refused only to encounter dreadful hardships for disobeying it. When I asked why the hardship it said "I told you to" do something different. Then I felt the need to fast for 3 days, I thought to please God, a after a day and a half I could no longer do it and cried out and the inner voice said "get up and get back on the road" and within 100 yards a supply of good was provided. From that I discover that is where the voice comes.
Added to that is my eldest sister often heard a voice her other sibling couldn't when we were in the country and would run and ask mother if she had called. Our devout traditional Christian would say "that was the devil" so after my new birth I realized my mother didn't know the truth about whence comes the voice of God.
Thanks for sharing that.
