Today's reading comes from the first Book of Kings, Chapter 19: 9-12 . . .
Elijah is told to "Go outside and stand on the mountain before the Lord; the Lord will be passing by."
Then came a strong wind, scripture tells us, "but the Lord was not in the wind."
Then came an earthquake "but the Lord was not in the earthquake."
Then came a fire, "but the Lord was not in the fire."
Scripture says that "After the fire there was a tiny whispering sound."
That is where God can be found, in the tiny, whispering sound, but so often we look for him in the loud thundering clamor, don't we?
Why do you suppose we have trouble hearing God today? Is it because we are so noisy we can't hear His whisper? Or, perhaps, we are looking in the wrong place!
Let your heart be open today to God's whisper. Set aside some quiet time for the Lord. If you are struggling with finding God in whatever is happening in your life, persevere in asking for His help. God is always with us, whether we hear Him or not!
