A Whisper Not a Scream

When I finished my work, I prostrated before Him and in silence awaited His word. (Elizabeth) (December 30, 1962)

Today’s Readings: “Go outside and stand on the mountain before the LORD; the LORD will be passing by.” A strong and heavy wind was rending the mountains and crushing 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 there was fire—but the LORD was not in the fire. After the fire there was a tiny whispering sound. When he heard this, Elijah hid his face in his cloak and went and stood at the entrance of the cave. (1 Kings 19)

Prayer Meditation- Lord, there is so much noise in our lives- it seems more and more there are strong winds and earthquakes and we cannot find You! Our work, our families, the media and news of the day- all of it very busy and if we are caught up in the noise we can so easily lose our peace. Lord help us to wait in silence for You because You are not in the screaming pace of this life but in the whispers that You send to our hearts when we can slow down enough to listen.
