I want to know for sure that He hears. That He sees. I'm waiting for a booming voice, a shaking, fiery revelation.
And then HE comes.
“Go out and stand before me on the mountain,” the Lord told him. And as Elijah stood there, the Lord passed by, and a mighty windstorm hit the mountain. It was such a terrible blast that the rocks were torn loose, but the Lord was not in the wind. After the wind there was an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake. And after the earthquake there was a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire. And after the fire there was the sound of a gentle whisper. When Elijah heard it, he wrapped his face in his cloak and went out and stood at the entrance of the cave. And a voice said, “What are you doing here, Elijah?”
-1 Kings 19:11-13
What am I doing here? In a cave of whining & complaining, doubt & fear. And then HE comes & I can feel Him. I can see Him. I can hear Him.
HE came in a long awaited email.
HE came in a gentle reprimand from a loved one.
HE came in a conversation with a friend.
HE came in a picture of a little girl's baptism.
HE came just now in a little coffee shop on a island in the Pacific where I sit with my computer & my eyes full of tears.
HE came in a gentle whisper.
HE came. HE comes. HE's coming.
I just had to shut my whiny mouth & listen.
"I'm here, my beloved child. Come, sit at my feet. Rest in my embrace. You are mine. I care. I hear. I see. I come."
The Lord always puts a song on my heart, no matter what I am walking through, and hears the latest one- I Can Feel You- Bethel Tides
So, be encouraged. The radio silence will end. He always comes!
Thank you to all of you who pray for & encourage me!!!
