1 Kings 19:11,12 Then the Lord said to Elijah, “Go, stand in front of me on the mountain. I, the Lord, will pass by you.” Then a very strong wind blew. The wind caused the mountains to break apart. It broke large rocks in front of the Lord. But that wind was not the Lord. After that wind, there was an earthquake. But that earthquake was not the Lord. After the earthquake, there was a fire. But that fire was not the Lord. After the fire, there was a quiet, gentle voice.

There is a hunger amongst God’s people – well, at least in the hearts of some of God’s people – to hear God speak. They won’t content themselves with knowing about God. No, they want to know God for themselves.

So here’s a question that makes a great many of God’s people feel a tad uncomfortable. How do you hear God speak His will into your life?

Sometimes you’ll hear someone say, “God told me this,” or, “God told me that.” Fine, but how did He tell them this or that? How did they hear Him speak to them?

I think sometimes we expect God to show up in a big, flashy, powerful way. And to be sure, sometimes He chooses to do it that way. But most times, it’s not like that at all. Most times it’s really quite different:

1 Kings 19:11,12 Then the Lord said to Elijah, “Go, stand in front of me on the mountain. I, the Lord, will pass by you.” Then a very strong wind blew. The wind caused the mountains to break apart. It broke large rocks in front of the Lord. But that wind was not the Lord. After that wind, there was an earthquake. But that earthquake was not the Lord. After the earthquake, there was a fire. But that fire was not the Lord. After the fire, there was a quiet, gentle voice.

Isn’t that a powerful picture that God paints for us there? Not the wind, though it tore the mountains apart, not the earthquake, not the fire … but that quiet, gentle voice.

Of course, in this world where we’re connected 24/7, in this life where we have so many options, so many things to grab our attention, you need to get still if you’re going to hear that quiet, gentle voice.

That’s God’s Word. Fresh … for you … today.

Good Morning,

Thank you for the powerful verse on the book of 1 Kings 19:11,12. It really touched my heart as at this stage of my life , I am wrestling with knowing God’s plan and purpose for my life, my career and my business venture . Indeed , it feels like all I hear or see is the wind, the earthquake and the fire. Beloved, please pray with me to be still and not doubt that he is God and He is in control.
