“Then He said, “Go out, and stand on the mountain before the LORD.” And behold, the LORD passed by, and a great and strong wind tore into the mountains and broke the rocks in pieces before the LORD, but the LORD not in the wind; and after the wind an earthquake, but the LORD not in the earthquake; and after the earthquake a fire, but the LORD not in the fire; and after the fire a still” (1 Kings 19:11-12)
We see the great prophet Elijah being told by God to go to the mountain and wait there to hear from God. I know, like us, Elijah was probably hoping for some supernatural move of God and God did do some of that. He sent a wind that shook a mountain, then an earthquake, and then a fire, yet God’s voice was not in any of these.
Too often we want the spectacular and we miss out on the supernatural. The way that God speaks to us the majority of times is through His still small voice. That voice is the voice of His precious Holy Spirit that lives within us. When we get ourselves quiet enough we can hear Him giving us the direction that we need.
Jesus said that His sheep hear and know His voice, but if we’re going to always look for stuff on the outside, “wind, fire, earthquakes”, we’re going to miss the biggest moves of God in our lives. We need to remember that God is a Spirit and those who worship must worship Him in Spirit and in truth.
I used to listen to a song that was called Heart to Heart. We can say that with our Heavenly Father, it is spirit to Spirit. So go ahead and take some time today to just be still and quiet and listen to what your Father is saying to you. I’ll tell you one thing, you won’t be disappointed.
Heavenly Father, It is written in Your Word according to the word of God, Your sheep know Your Voice. Heavenly Father, I am one of Your sheep. I ask You to teach me to know Your Voice and to hear You distinctly and clearly according to Your word. I ask You Lord to teach me to discern every spirit to know if they are of You, Lord. As it is written, we should not believe every spirit but test the spirits to determine whether they are of God. I ask You Lord ro draw me closer to You so I will not ever hear the voice of a stranger, but of my Father. I ask You to do this in Jesus Name. Amen.
