The Lord said, "Go out and stand on the mountain in the presence of the Lord, for the Lord is about to pass by."
Then a great and powerful wind tore the mountains apart and shattered the rocks before the Lord, but the Lord was not in the wind. After the wind there was an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake. After the earthquake came a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire. And after the fire came a gentle whisper. When Elijah heard it, he pulled his cloak over his face and went out and stood at the mouth of the cave.
Then a voice said to him, "What are you doing here, Elijah?" I Kings 19:11-13
Each of us at one type in our life has seen the ground beneath our Feet shaken, And when we fell, We looked for God. We searched for Him, yet we did not find Him, We called for Him, but He did not answer, We reached out to Him, but He was nowhere in sight, or so we thought. The reality is, God does not operate in the realm of our understanding. To our Minds, The Voice of God must be great and mighty, That when He speaks it will always cause something visible and earth shaking to happen. When this doesn't take place, it is commonplace for most people to turn away, because they haven't patience enough to listen for the quiet after all the noise. But God is searching for Men and Women after the footsteps of Elijah, who will listen for the still small whisper in the Wind, Even after it seems like He has passed them by, They wait, they pray, they seek God's voice until they heat the faintest whisper. They cling to it, because to them, His voice is so much sweeter and more awe inspiring than even the Greatest of Signs, and even the most mind blowing of Wonders.
Today, I challenge you, When you pray, Find a place alone, Turn off music, turn off your phone and any other thing that can distract you, and talk to God, tell Him what you need, but then don't get up. Quiet your heart, and Listen for Him to speak, No matter how long you have to stay, Be patient, and see what that Still small voice has to say today.
