Daily devotional: The Lord'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
The Lord is mighty and all powerful, yet awesomely controlled and does not need to be boisterous or reckless. While perhaps not the primary object of this passage, I think I miss the Lord sometimes because I do not quiet myself and listen to His gentle whisper.

Application
Watch and listen for the Lord. Quiet myself to hear His voice.

Prayer
Lord, You are mighty and awesome. Who can stand before You? I submit to You and will listen for Your voice. Please speak to me and reveal Yourself to me so that I can know You and Your ways more deeply. I love you.
