Really Hearing God-Really
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.
Then a voice said to him, "What are you doing here, Elijah?" 1 Kings 19: 11-13 (NIV)
JW thoughts: I am easily distracted. My attention is never in one place for long. It's a problem. Because of my short attention span, I need to be mindful of my attentiveness to God. Am I seeking an authentic relationship with him? Am I hearing him? The relationship between God and his children is one where we often need to be silent and hear his whispers. It is difficult to hear God in a noisy world. We may need to slow down and be silent...to hear him.
