1 Kings 19:12, God-moments, Meditation, Prayer, silence, solitude
It can be exciting when God lets us know of his presence in those profound experiences when He deals us an “ah-ha!” moment. He certainly gets our attention. But, I’ve come to long for that “light silent sound” (1 Kgs 19:12 NAB) such as Elijah heard on Mt. Horeb in today’s scripture passage. It’s truly a special feeling to be in my place of silence and solitude, in morning prayer and meditating on His Word, and hear God speak to my heart, telling me what He desires of me that day. It’s the perfect start to a day!

I’ve referred my children and grandchildren to this scripture/story reminding them that, in a world filled with all kinds of violence and noise, it’s their job to respond to God’s quiet voice.

You’re right, Mike. There is so much “noise” in the world today you have to intentionally find some solitude and silence to hear His still, small voice. It makes all the difference. Hope you’re doing well my friend!
