The latest book by Dr. Brenda Rambo is something I would take from a shelf or website the moment I saw the title, “Whispers from the Spirit”. How many times a day do we hear a voice guiding us towards the right from wrong, to make the decision or pray more about it, to speak to that person or not? As a Christian, I recognize that voice as the Holy Spirit–one of the Holy Trinity. If Jesus had not died on a cross for our sins that voice would not be in us guiding and directing us. In John 16:7 Jesus says that it is to our “advantage” that He go away because the Helper (Counselor) will not come unless he does.
This devotional Dr. Rambo has written are things she heard in her daily journaling as she was traveling through rough waters probably sometimes clinging on to the boat needing strength and reassurance from Him to get out and to “trust Him”. We have all been there at some point in our lives. She weaves the words heard in her daily writings that came many times in paraphrased scriptures. Many of us know His words often come to us in that way.
We’ve all had our favorite devotionals. One of mine is “My utmost for His Highest” by Oswald Chambers but this is what I call a deep, challenging read and we all agree that we have those days when we don’t really need a challenge but just a few “whispers” from Him. A whisper can become just as deep. That is when you will want to get a cup of tea, put on some peaceful music, and just read Dr. Rambo’s words. You will definitely receive your own “whispers” from the Holy Spirit as you read so be ready to have a journal handy to jot down what “you” hear as well as a Bible because you will definitely want to refer to the scriptures the Holy Spirit brings to your remembrance as you allow yourself to rest in the words on the pages of this beautiful devotional. One of my favorite passages is from Whisper 2, page 16 where she shares the following whisper:
“Let my peace prevail so that those around you cannot spoil the stillness of your heart and mind. Do not let anyone –any trouble, any irritation, any adversity, disturb your peace.” I
I know this will become one of your favorite devotionals to pick up especially when daily life in this hard to live in world makes you weary. You will definitely receive encouragement, guidance and advice to go forward and also be encouraged to study more of the word of God.

I have my copy of Whispers of the Spirit and I treasure the time I spend reading it. Even the cover is beautiful to look at , soft to the touch and even is comforting just to hold it. I read the short devotionals over and over.
