11 And he said, Go forth, and stand upon the mount before the Lord. And, behold, the Lord passed by, and a great and strong wind rent the mountains, and brake 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: 12 And after the earthquake a fire; but the Lord was not in the fire: and after the fire a still small voice. 13 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?
Many of us want the Lord to speak to us. There are just as many reasons why we won’t be able to hear Him when He does. I was just reminded that God sometimes doesn’t speak to us using something spectacular to get our attention. We make the mistake of waiting on that strong majestic voice that shatters mountains makes our homes shake and winds that knock us down.
It’s the still small voice, the whisper we should be listening for. Elijah found that out and I have been reminded. Now I am reminding you. Don’t miss out on what the Lord has for you waiting on Him to make a show of it all. Get still, turn everything off and listen for His loving and gentle whisper.
Are you listening with your ears and your heart? What distractions do you have that block you from hearing the Lord’s voice? Is it sin? Stressful days? Idols?
Lord I pray for the reader of this blog to clear their thoughts and un-clutter their lives from so many idols and distractions. Dear Lord do this so they can hear yoyr voice which is full of love, wisdom and instruction. In Jesus name…Amen.
