1 Kings 19:11-13 – When God Whispers

1 Kings 19:11-13 (NLT) “Go out and stand before me on the mountain,” the LORD told him. And as Elijah stood there, the LORD passed by, and a mighty windstorm hit the mountain. It was such a terrible blast that the rocks were torn loose, but the LORD was not in the wind. After the wind there was an earthquake, but the LORD was not in the earthquake. And after the earthquake there was a fire, but the LORD was not in the fire. And after the fire there was the sound of a gentle whisper. When Elijah heard it, he wrapped his face in his cloak and went out and stood at the entrance of the cave. And a voice said, “What are you doing here, Elijah?”

Picture I took from Mount Arbel in Israel looking out over Galilee. This is the mountain most religious leaders would retreat to at the time of Christ to pray.

What is God saying to me? God does not always speak when and/or how I expect Him to.

How will I obey? Today is going to be a hectic day.  I will listen for God to speak to me.

Who will I tell?  My daughter Anna as I take her to camp this morning.

Is your life stormy right now?  Listen to God.  Is your life quiet right now?  Listen to God.

  1. A quick thought before my day takes off, like a rocket: God’s voice is in the scriptures and sometimes it is soft as a baby’s sleeping breath and as roaring as the blast from a jet engine. Either way, it is trustworthy and welcomed. I noticed that Elijah was listening to all, expecting God’s voice/call to come at any “volume” and circumstance.

    Have a great finish to your week!

    You are appreciated.



    • Love this Steve. Yes.

      I was reminded this morning in our 7 Day Experiment that scripture is “Breathed out by God.” It sounds like a whisper.

      I respect you sir.
