My morning class began Spring Break March 8th. During the break I thought about getting a haircut and beard trim. I ignored the thought and focused on relaxing, blogging, and writing. If I had paid attention to that thought and gone that week, I would not look like this right now.
It was the following week that shops closed down due to the COVID-19 virus.
God often speaks in a quiet voice just as he did with Elijah. In 1 Kings 19 we read about God demonstrating his power through strong wind and fire etc, but when he spoke to Elijah it says:
“After the earthquake came a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire. And after the fire came a gentle whisper”
My pastor shared in an online devotional yesterday that when we whisper, we have to be close enough for the person to hear. God wants us so close to him that he can whisper to us. He desires intimate relationship with his children.
During this time of staying home and self isolating, I want to hear God whisper to me.
Let’s not ignore the subtle thoughts like I did when I did not go get my haircut and beard trimmed and ended up four weeks later looking like I do now. Let’s listen to God whisper to us.
Thank you for reading. God Bless.
