“And he said, “Go out and stand on the mount before the Lord.” And behold, the Lord passed by, and a great and strong wind tore the mountains and broke in pieces the rocks before the Lord, but the Lord was not in the wind. And after the wind an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake. And after the earthquake a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire. And after the fire the sound of a low whisper. And when Elijah heard it, he wrapped his face in his cloak and went out and stood at the entrance of the cave. And behold, there came a voice to him and said, “What are you doing here, Elijah?”” 1 Kings 19:11-13
I hate it when I’m watching something that has gunshots or explosions or something like that and I have to turn the t.v. up higher than usual to hear the dialogue but that means I’m blasted out of my chair by the sound effects. That’s kind of what happens when we try to hear God better; everything else gets louder too. If you’re waiting on a word, maybe you should follow Elijah’s example; go where you can be alone and wait for the whisper.
Thanks for reading,
