As I sit here having a cup of coffee with Jesus this morning, I realized that I have been doing all the talking. I read my Bible aloud and prayed and was just yacking away and it dawned on me (I’m smart like that) that I hadn’t asked Him what He was thinking. I am really trying to focus on what He wants to tell me instead of me telling Him what I want or how my day should go. Imagine that, me telling the Creator of the universe how to plan my day! As if!!
Anyways, today I will stop throughout my day and ask Him what He thinks. I want to draw near to Him so He will draw near to me. I want to be able to hear His small voice speak to me. I want to sense His presense like never before.
I was just reminded of the time when Elijah was hiding in the cave after he killed all the prophets of Baal. God came to him and told him to go stand on the mountain in the presence of the Lord because the Lord was about to pass by. I think I would just drop dead if that happened to me! The Lord then sends a powerful wind that shattered the rocks but He was not in it. He then sent an earthquake but He was not in that either. Next came a fire but He was not there either. Then, I love this part, came a gentle whisper. God spoke to Elijah in a whisper. I think of the many missed opportunities to commune with God because I was looking for something extraordinary to happen when all along He is whispering.
Lord today, help me to be so in tune with You that I hear Your whispers. I don’t want to miss anything you have to say me today.
