ACE #447: The Still Small Voice

For the last few years, God has given me a song, a word (or words), and a specific study each year.
  • In 2015, the song was "Worth Fighting For" by Brian Courtney Wilson. My word was Loyalty. I studied Judas, Delilah, Jezebel and Laban Spirits along with the minor prophets. God was really showing me the character of my enemies, but also the ins and outs of my own character. It was a time where I had to be the most self-reflective.
  • In 2016, the song was "Send the Rain" by William McDowell.  My word was Integrity. I studied the process of reaping and sowing. It was a time I had to be very intentional about the seeds I sowed and the soil in which I sowed them. I was especially generous to those who were in need.
  • In 2017, the song was "You Will Win" by Jekalyn Carr. My words were Peace and Quietness. I studied and taught the book "Golden Fruit" about the Fruit of the Spirit. I worked extremely hard to remain obedient to God's will and His way. In the second half of that year, I only said what God told me to say when up against my enemies.  More often that not, He wouldn't let me say anything. But God declared that through Him I would be victorious over my enemies; He would make it so.
  • In 2018, the song has been "A Great Work" by Brian Courtney Wilson. My word continues to be Transparency. I studied about purpose, ministry assignments and, particularly, hearing God's voice. I read and taught the book "Who Speaks to Your Heart: Tuning in to Hear God's Whispers." I will tell anyone, whether they ask or not, this book changed my life. It changed my life so much, that it encouraged me to finish my first book, "From the Test to the Testimony: An Anthology of Faith Stories." I am grateful for the women who saw the project all the way through to end...even after three years of waiting. But God's timing is always the best timing. We launched our business this year and held our first women's conference. Those things developed over a five-year journey of figuring out our callings. Again, God's timing is everything.
As the close of 2018 is quickly approaching, God has given me my word, in a still small voice - Surge. I can't wait to see that thing manifest. Even if I imagine it, it won't be adequate for what God can and will do. Ironically enough, as I was driving, I ran straight into a sign that said Surge and I took a picture. I wasn't even looking for it. I know I am on the right track.

As you set your annual goals for 2019, steal away to a quiet place, a secret place, and get into the presence of the Lord so that you too can hear that still small voice give you your song, your word, your study, and your instructions for the year. All you have to do is listen.

  The REVIEWS are out on "From the Test to the Testimony".


  1. Thank you for sharing your walk with God, your trials and tribulations along with your victories. May God continue to order your steps. God Bless you my sister.
