Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 06/09/13

This week’s scripture is from 1 Kings:

Fountain-House-of-Prayer2“… and after the fire a still small voice.”  (1 Kings 19:12b)

Much of our lives are filled with noise and the busyness of everyday life from the time we awake until we sleep again. It is difficult to hear God above the clash and hubbub of everything going on around us. Some days we can barely keep up. We might wonder where God is in the hectic pace of our daily lives. Yet He is there. He is there and He is waiting. He is waiting for us to slow down; He is waiting for us to pause, to stop long enough to listen, to hear that still small voice when He speaks to us. It does us no good to be rushing around so much that we cannot hear God’s voice. He will speak to us if we will be still long enough to really listen. Take time to wait upon the Lord today and hear what He has to say to you.

May the Lord bless you to be still and listen to Him this very day.
