I just read in the Bible this morning about Elijah in a cave hearing a MASSIVE windstorm, feeling an earthquake & seeing an unexplainable fire – all things that would TOTALLY GRAB OUR ATTENTION!!!!! But Elijah didn’t respond to any of these huge & loud cataclysms. But when he heard a small whisper or a faint breeze, that’s when he put on his coat to go outside of his cave & chat with God.
I’d like to be more like Elijah – less reactionary with various cataclysms, attention grabbers and the loudness that can be so prevalent in life. I’d like to be trained to listen, watch and wait for God’s presence and voice, even when its small and quiet. I find that when God’s voice is small and quiet, I tend to get more focused and quiet so that I can hear what He’s saying with greater attention and alertness. Don’t fight the quiet 🙂
