A Still Small Voice

1 KINGS 19:12-13

And the Lord told Elijah to ‘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 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 a still small voice.

We are in the clutches of an unseen force that has brought life as we know it to a halt. Our freedoms have been infringed upon, and our daily routines are not routine anymore. We have had to be creative in how we connect with others, and our busy lifestyles may be on hold.

Have you heard the voice of the Lord in all this? He is not in the daily newscasts that cause so much worry. You will not find Him in the latest, grim statistics. He is not present in the chaos of uncertainty. Have you discovered any blessings that have come from this? If not, maybe it is time to go stand on the mountain and listen for that still small voice. You will find Him there, waiting to renew your strength, for He said, ‘Be still and know that I am God’.

In His Service,

Judy Flieger

    So poignant right now. I believe the Lord is speaking to us in not so small a voice…but the promise of life going on is showing as flowers bloom and trees begin to leaf out….. as usual.. Thanks, Judy.

    Judy, you are so right – God is with us. I have heard that still, small voice several times in the past few weeks. What an encouragement to know that He is control and that He has promised to never leave us or forsake us.

    Thank you, Judy, I love the opportunity to listen to God speak through this situation as we draw closer to our families and friends by intentionally connecting with them. The conversations have been deeper and more loving.
