About 30 days ago we started a devotional program in our church. This can easily be one more program, something to read every day, just writing a weekly message and ... that's it? No, that shouldn’t be it!
Remember what the Bible says in Isaiah 55.8? "For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways declares the Lord”.
It is unbelievable how God can use simple things like a little devotional to talk to us, to guide us, to encourage us, and to sustain us for that day. Sometimes we are desperate to listen to His voice, to know His direction. Then, we start to look for Him, and because God is big, we just pay attention to bigger and stronger things, but you know, sometimes or even many times, God is not there, God is in a low whisper, 1 Kings 19:9-12 says: "There he came to a cave and lodged in it. And behold, the word of the LORD came to him, and he said to him, “What are you doing here, Elijah?” He said, “I have been very jealous for the LORD, the God of hosts. For the people of Israel have forsaken your covenant, thrown down your altars, and killed your prophets with the sword, and I, even I only, am left, and they seek my life, to take it away.” And he said, “Go out and stand on the mount before the LORD.” And behold, the LORD passed by, and a great and strong wind tore the mountains and broke in pieces the rocks before the LORD, but the LORD was not in the wind. And after the wind an earthquake, but the LORD was not in the earthquake. And after the earthquake a fire, but the LORD was not in the fire. And after the fire the sound of a low whisper.”
Don't underestimate God because He wants to talk to you!
