After reading 1 Kings 19:11-12 in our daily devotional on Friday evening I was struck by it's words I was reminded that even with all the frightening things happening in my world, I must remember to listen for His gentle whisper. Our prayers are full of the families who have been devastated by the events in Japan and in parts of the Western United States....My prayer for you is that you hear the gentle whisper of your Lord through the days ahead.
1 Kings 19:11-13
The LORD said, “Go out and stand on the mountain in the presence of the LORD, for the LORD is about to pass by.”
Then a great and powerful wind tore the mountains apart and shattered the rocks before the LORD, but the LORD was not in the wind. After the wind there was an earthquake, but the LORD was not in the earthquake. After the earthquake came a fire, but the LORD was not in the fire. And after the fire came a gentle whisper. When Elijah heard it, he pulled his cloak over his face and went out and stood at the mouth of the cave.
