I Fell in Love with Elizah
Sunday, August 09, 2020
This morning I was reading from the book of Kings and how Elizah was sent up to the Mountain of God to wait for God to speak. First there was a rushing wind that broke boulders but God was not in the wind. Then, there was an earthquake and God was not in the earthquake. If that wasn't bad enough, then there was a fire. God was not in the fire. Then Elizah came out of the cave, covered his head in his cloak and God came in a whisper.
When we are in the midst of chaos, hearing God is so very difficult. But when we come to that quiet place, then God comes to us in the silence.
Elizah is a wonderful Old Testament prophet. He is very human and very blessed by God. Just a reminder that God is in love with us human beings.
