The Still Small Voice

“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 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. So it was, when Elijah heard it, that he wrapped his face in his mantle and went out…” (1 Kgs 19:11-13)

Do we hear the voice? If we were Elijah, would we have ran after the fire, chased after the wind, looked into the earthquake? Let us learn to be still and create in ourselves a quiet heart and a gentle spirit, because maybe only then we will truly seek and find God. Especially in a world filled with excitement and distractions, it is crucial that we receive this spiritual peace that God gives us. Maybe instead of judging our own actions and making our own decisions, we should stop for a moment and listen to God–listen to the still small voice that is often washed out with our worries and our ambitions. We need to have a heart of quietness to hear because in the end, all that matters is you and Him alone and nothing else.
