Do You Hear God’s Whispers in the Dark?

All last week I was listening to Skillet’s Comatose CD in my car. There is one song on this CD that I have always liked, but it wasn’t until last week that I realized how awesome the lyrics are. It’s called Whispers in the Dark. I don’t know if this is what the band intended, but I imagine this song as God singing into the soul of a lost and broken person who can’t find their own way out of the darkness of this world.

My favorite line is when it says, “My love is a burning consuming fire.” God’s love is a consuming fire that burns up all that is worthless within the heart of each person who trusts in Him. Once you trust in Him, you will never be alone. He will be the One who finds you, the One who guides you, the One you run to, and the One who holds you.

If you don’t like hard rock music you might not enjoy this song, but you can see the lyrics if you watch the video without the sound. But I just love the driving power of the music as well as the lyrics. It starts out quietly, then hits hard with the full force of the rock instruments. It reminds me of how God can start to quietly woo a person, calling them to Himself, but then once you believe He hits hard with all His love and mercy, and never lets go.

If you listen closely, you can hear His whispers in the dark night of your soul.

  1. Oh I love this and the idea of God whispering into the soul of a lost and broken person . .singing quiet at first and then louder, hitting full force with His love and desire for us to be with Him.
    God bless you as He sings over you with delight!

    Linda, Your post on Broken Believers is awesome. Thank you for continuing to write about what matters in our lives, and the hope you have found in our Savior.

    • Margaret, Thank you. :) It seems impossible now to NOT write of the hope I have found. If I didn’t share it here I think I might explode! And I am so blessed by those who are touched and encouraged by what I write. What an honor that is that the Lord would allow me to do this. Peace, Linda
