The Father Within

Beloved, there's this still small voice - the voice of the Father within; the voice of the spirit of God the Father in man. This is the still small voice the prophet Elijah knew. 1 Kings 19:12-13, "And after the earthquake a fire; but the Lord was not in the fire: and after the fire a still small voice. And it was so, when Elijah heard it, that he wrapped his face in his mantle, and went out, and stood in the entering in of the cave. And, behold, there came a voice unto him, and said, What doest thou here, Elijah?" 

This is the still small voice that spoke concerning Jesus, "This is my beloved Son... Hear him." Please, see Matthew 17:5, "While Peter was still speaking, a bright cloud enveloped them, and a voice from the cloud said, “This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. Listen to Him!” 

This "voice" from the cloud (Matthew 17:5) is the "still small voice", the Father's voice. Please, observe that we are not talking about the Holy Spirit here. The still small voice is separate from the Holy Spirit. The still small voice is how God the Father is represented in you. The Holy Spirit is how God the Infinite Spirit is represented in you. 
This "voice" is the Father's indwelling spirit that Jesus Christ was intimately closely associated with all through his earth life. The single number one reason why so many people struggle or fail in the things of the spirit is this: They are not walking in close working relationship with "the still small voice", "the Father-within".

The still small voice is the technique through which God our infinitely transcendent heavenly Father comes so very, very close to you and becomes immanent (existing or operating within; inherent). The Father who is so, so far away becomes so, so close to you! Hallelujah!

It is this friendship with "the Voice" - the Indwelling Spirit of God the Father that will really get you to walk with God successfully just like Enoch, Elijah and Jesus did. This was their secret. And you know Enoch and Elijah were translated to the heavenly realms without experiencing death! 
Some of you have literally, unmistakably heard this Inner Voice speak to you so powerfully with so much love! Enjoy! 🍷    Many times, you may not hear a literal voice. Nevertheless, the Indwelling Spirit is always present in you; right there interacting with you in your thoughts. Glory! 🙏🏾
