Life is full of drama. How can we know the Lord is speaking to us? How can we hear God when our lives are so busy? 1 Kings 17–2 Kings 2 is the story of the prophet Elijah and his example of using basic spiritual disciplines to hear God’s voice. Elijah’s circumstances were not so different than ours. His story is full of highs and lows. He was consumed by fear for his life, depression, fatigue, and too many demands. But when Elijah listened for God’s gentle whispers he was confident, he had God’s power to perform miracles, he had a fiery attitude to take on anything or anybody, he had supernatural strength and energy, he led others’ to recognize Truth, and he had acute hearing of God’s voice. This story begins and ends with the same amazing scene for Elijah … and for us. It is a miracle more powerful and life changing than fire from heaven or a limitless supply of oil in a jar. It is the miracle of knowing God. Everything that God offered Elijah, He offers to us: His power, His Word, and His Presence. Through the use of basic, daily spiritual disciplines we can prepare our hearts, as Elijah did, to hear the voice of God. Will we allow God to interrupt the harried pace of our days to speak to us? If we are still, we will hear His gentle whisper.Listen closely. He is calling.
