If I were in Elijah’s shoes on the mountain, I would have fallen for the wind, earthquake or fire. But Elijah knew God was in the whisper because this wasn’t his first rodeo. By walking with, speaking with and, most importantly, listening to God for a long time, he had learned to recognize His voice.
Questions for further thought:
1. Do you believe it’s still possible to hear God speaking today? Why or why not?
2. Can you recall some instances where you believe God spoke to or directed you?
Challenge: Two things are necessary to learn to hear from God. First, dedicated time to spend with Him and, second, a good working knowledge of the Bible. If your quiet time and Bible reading need work, make that a priority this week.
