I really wanted to hear from God this morning. I’ve been craving it. I know He speaks and I’ve felt His Presence. I long for that. I thought it was a matter of stillness, so I tried to quiet my mind – which was utter chaos. Then the remembrance of the passage about God speaking in the still, small voice popped into my mind. I found that reference in 1 Kings 19, and read about how Elijah stood on the mountain and the strong wind came, the earthquake came, and a fire came…but God wasn’t in those. Next came a still small voice (the notes in my Bible’s margin said, “delicate, whispering voice”). My John MacArthur notes for this verse said, “The lesson for Elijah was that Almighty God was quietly sometimes imperceptibly doing His work…”
Even when wind, earthquakes and fire abound, He’s still there working. He may be silent right now, but He’s working. His timing is perfect.
God is at work – even when I don’t hear or see or feel Him. He’s quietly and sometimes imperceptibly working.
We sang the song, “Always,” in church this week and it was such a blessing. “I lift my eyes up…my help comes from the Lord…I will not fear, His promise is true. My God will come through always, always.” (I’ve included a hyperlink to the song on Youtube.)
I’m enjoying spending time “In His Presence.” How about you? Link up and share what He’s telling you!
