Whisper of God | 1 Kings 19:11-13 NIrV

The LORD said, “Go out. Stand on the mountain in front of me. I am going to pass by.” As the LORD approached, a very powerful wind tore the mountains apart. It broke up the rocks. But the LORD wasn’t in the wind. After the wind there was an earthquake. But the LORD wasn’t in the earthquake. [12] After the earthquake a fire came. But the LORD wasn’t in the fire. And after the fire there was only a gentle whisper. [13] When Elijah heard it, he pulled his coat over his face. He went out and stood at the entrance to the cave. Then a voice said to him, “Elijah, what are you doing here?”

1 Kings 19:11-13 NIrV

Reflection:

Read 1 Kings 19:11-13 NIrV.

More often than not, God chooses to speak to us in a gentle whisper rather than in the dramatic (lightening, thunder, smoke and a booming voice).  Take some time today and ask yourself what is God trying to whisper to you.
