Text: 1 Kings 19:12-13
📖12….”…and after the fire A STILL SMALL VOICE
📖13….And it was so, when Elijah heard it, that he wrapped his face in his mantle, and went out, and stood in the entering in of the cave. And, behold, there came a voice unto him, and said, What doest thou here, Elijah?”
🔥Two people at loggerheads, settle their disputes with loud voices of quarrel because of the separation their anger with each other has created. But if they are in love with each other, they need not shout. Same with God. He speaks to us in still small voice because he loves us, and we are closed to his voice since he dwells in those he loves according to 1 Cor 6:19. So, to find God, we need to look for where his still small voice is. Where there is no self aggrandizement.
🔥🔥When David looked for God, to ask him to stop killing the children of Israel when he numbered Israel in 1 Chro 21:1, he found God in the still small voice of burnt offerings and peace offerings in 1 Chro 21:26-27. Even Noah and Abraham found God in the still small voice of sacrifices in Gen 8:20-22 and Gen 22:2, 10-13 respectively. Brethren, have you sought God in the soundless still small voice of sacrifice without finding him?
🔥🔥🔥Another still small voice hiding God from man is the voice of services. In Exodus 3:1-4, the prince of Egypt called Moses, became a nomad before finding God in perfect service. He was faithfully serving Jethro, even though he was a prince of Egypt, when God revealed himself to him in the fire of the burning bush. God can also be found in the still small voice of ministering unto the Lord in his sanctuary like Samuel did in 1 Sam 3:1-10. Meanwhile, Isaac, the promised seed, found God in the still small voice of prayer in Gen 25:20-21, 26. Beloved BoLD readers, seek God either in the voice of sacrifice, services, ministry, or prayers, and He will show up.
🙏Dear Lord, because of your love for me, may your still small voice always attract me to you in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏Dependable Father, reveal yourself to me and in me, through every sacrificial offering I have ever offered to you in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏🙏Ancient of days, as the services and prayers of men of old made them to find you with the answers to their prayers, do not despise my services, prayers and sanctuary ministry in Jesus’ name.
