From the title, you’re probably already thinking of the scripture it pertains to. Remember the story where God is speaking to Elijah after he runs into the wilderness? As he runs from Jezebel, I could only imagine what he is thinking as he is going into the wilderness; only being instructed by a “still, small voice” in the midst of chaos.
Then He said, “Go out, and stand on the mountain before the Lord.” And behold, the Lord passed by, and a great and strong wind tore into the mountains and broke the rocks in pieces before the Lord, but the Lord was not in the wind; and after the wind an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake; 12 and after the earthquake a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire and after the fire a still small voice.
1 Kings 19:11-13
In the aforementioned scripture, God is showing Elijah, and each of us, that even in the midst of the chaos, he is there. He doesn’t have to have theatrics or lights flickering for a revelation to come. Getting quiet before the Lord is even more inviting to Holy Spirit. Many times we pray and it seems we get no answer or nothing comes. As the word illustrates here with Elijah, the voice of the Father is gentle, loving, and kind. So ask yourself, have you already formed an idea concerning how God should speak to you?
It’s easy to get discouraged when we don’t get as much after time spent in prayer, but rest assured, the Holy Spirit is there. As we have learned, those moments in the wilderness are the most humbling times in a person’s life. When things are considered to be hectic, we are to come before the Father listening for that still small voice. In the natural, going through the wilderness can feel like you’re being left out to dry. Just know that with the Father, it is the time where we become the most alive spiritually. Even so, unless we remain subjective to Elohim, we don’t know where to go or what to do.
I pray something that I have said has influenced your heart. Moreover, I pray that you have a blessed day.
