I Kings 19:11-12 “And he said, Go forth and stand upon the mount before the Lord. And behold, the Lord passed by, and a great and strong wind rent the mountains, and brake in pieces the rocks before the Lord; but the Lord was not in the wind: and after the wind an earthquake; but the Lord was not in the earthquake. And after the earthquake a fire; but the Lord was not in the fire. And after the fire, a still small voice.”
Life is loud. Sometimes my problems press in around me and it seems in my turning to and fro to find answers I cannot hear God. I was at an appointment last week about an important matter and I was feeling very overwhelmed to have to deal with it on my own. I was sitting in the waiting area with several other people, feeling the enormous weight on my shoulders, when I just cried out to God to please be with me in the midst of this. It took me about a minute, when I heard it. In an open office across the hall I heard music playing very faintly. I had to strain to hear it, but then I recognized the song “Here I Am To Worship”. This was not a Christian office, so to hear a song like that was amazing. God’s still small voice speaking to my heart “I am with you and I will be with you always”. Thank you God for teaching me to be still and wait on your still small voice!
