Do you like thunderstorms? I have to admit I do. I like to watch the lightning and hear the thunder. Thunderstorms rolled through my state last night bringing cooler weather for the weekend. It was 97 F, 37 C, yesterday and will be 76 F, 24 C, today. Where I live, thunderstorms often bring change in our weather.
It caused me to think about how what we consider storms in life and how they can bring change in our lives. Many times we do not see the change after the storm, but God does. Our part is to trust and seek God during the storms of life.
Elijah heard from God after three manifestations of power, a strong wind, an earthquake, and fire. Each of those three it says God was not in them. When God spoke to Elijah in 1 Kings 19 we find:
and after the earthquake a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire; and after the fire a still small voice.
God spoke to Elijah in a still small voice. When we seek God during the storms in life, we need to quiet ourselves so we can hear his still small voice It can help to step back, take time to be alone, and spend time with God in prayer.
Thank you for reading. God Bless.
