This morning I woke up and grabbed my Bible. I opened it and it fell to I Kings 18. This chapter of the Bible gave me the story of Elijah and his confrontation with the prophets of Baal. “Whichever God answers by fire, let him be God!” Long story short, Jehovah answered by fire and the false prophets were destroyed. Chapter 19 saw Elijah on the run for his life. He raced to the mount of God (Mt. Horeb) and God asked Elijah, “why are you here?”
To get to the gist of it, I will summarize and paraphrase what happened next. The winds blew, an earthquake occurred, and fire fell. God wasn’t in any of these things. He was in the still small voice.
As I’ve looked around at the world today it is filled with chaos. God isn’t to be found in politics, careers, or other vices. As usual, He is the still small voice that would speak peace to a world of calamity.
I would leave with one last Scripture. “Fear not; for I am with you.” I am thrilled to know that I don’t walk alone through this madness.
Be safe out there.
