1 Kings 19:9-18
How’s Your Hearing?
Today we read about God speaking to Elijah on Mount Horeb. Every time I read this passage, I’m struck by how God chose to speak, not through the wind and the fire, but in a calm, low whispering voice (vs. 12). There have been a number of times over the years when I’ve felt like I wasn’t hearing from God. But as I look at this passage, I think maybe my expectations of how I would hear from God (loud voice, big reactions, specific outcome, etc.) got in the way of hearing His calm, soft response.
Do you have expectations of how you’re going to hear from God? How do you clear the way to simply hear His voice? Tami
