Daily devotional: God's gentle whisper

Scripture
After the earthquake came a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire. And after the fire came a gentle whisper.
1 Kings 19:12 NIV

Observation
Although God is all powerful, He does not always choose to act or speak in such an overwhelming display as a powerful wind, earthquake, or fire. Am I quiet enough before the Lord that I can hear His gentle whisper, or have I crowded His voice out with busy-ness and sensory overload?

Application
Be still before the Lrod and listen for His gentle whisper. And realize He is still sovereign when He chooses not to display His power cvertly.

Prayer
Lord, I come humbly before You. I am reminded today of Your character. I confess that I am usually going too fast and not being still and quiet before You to hear Your voice. I love you and want to hear from You always, not to just have a one-sided conversation and definitely not to miss out on anything You have to tell me. Help me, Lord! Please help me make wise choices and prioritize You in everything so that I hear You clearly. You are awesome, Lord!
